About Alissa Alfonso

Art • Creative Direction • Styling • Custom Crafting

Alissa Alfonso challenges assumptions by creating art which simultaneously inspires and saves our environment.  She carefully considers how to use upcycled fabrics, sustainable media, fused plastic bags, hand dyed textiles and other innovative techniques to create unique pieces of art revealing the beauty of construction using repurposed materials.

“I spend hours thinking about how things are made. When I think about designing something, it’s an attempt to answer a lot of questions and challenge myself. What I always come back to is ‘revealing the beauty of construction.”

By combining her background in collage and sewing, Alissa creates fabric collages, upcycled lamps with soft sculpture shades and large scale art installations which emphasize the splendor of the natural world and the importance of mitigating our impact on the environment. Alissa demonstrates how we can create art while doing what we can to help mitigate our impact on the environment to leave the world a better place for future generations.
