Artist and interior stylist Alissa Wright grew up on the Gold Coast. Painting from an early age, Alissa soon began exhibiting and winning many awards throughout her education. She studied Fine Arts and Illustration before starting her own business designing artwork and glassware for interior designers.
Alissa is constantly travelling and absorbing the influences of worldwide interior trends and creating luxurious visual landscapes. Using a mix of oil, guache, pastel and acrylic, there is a literal element to Alissa’s subjects – reflective of her training in illustration. Yet, the layers of texture and fluidity of colour that are then employed by the artist, imbue a whimsy and soul to her canvas that is seen in the eye of a cheeky cockatoo and the face of a zebra has ambiguous depths.
Alissa has received widespread acclaim for her commissioned works in some of Australia’s finest homes. Her collection of work is used in many interior projects such as hotels and restaurants and is often featured in interior style publications.
