Alissa lives in North Devon on the edge of Exmoor. She is a relief printmaker and uses both lino and wood printing blocks. Alissa prints the blocks by hand at home on the kitchen table burnishing the back of the paper. The ink moves from the block onto the paper, she runs a line along a kitchen beam and pegs the prints up to dry.
Alissa’s new narrative range is especially enchanting – With a retro air about them her characters depict every day life in a playful bold manner. Her colour use strong and vibrant and her tonal images striking telling a story beautifully.
