About Alyssa Marie
If you've come to this page, it's because you met me swooning over the pelicans who frequent Vinoy Park, found me on social media or were shown one of my paintings from a friend, colleague or family member. I cannot thank you enough for stumbling across my little colorful corner of this world.
My name is Alyssa, owner and founder of Alyssa Marie Gallery alongside my fiancé, Braden Everly. I am from Littleton, Colorado originally and moved to St. Petersburg, Florida in Feb 2017 which is where I currently take residence amongst the waves and endless greenery.
From the get-go, I have had a love for art that I have a difficult time finding words to explain. Growing up, my parents beautiful kitchen table was covered in scratches and dents from art projects, residue from hot glue and of course, every color of paint I could get my hands on (Sorry Mom and Dad!)
As I grew, my love for art cultivated as I went on to pursue my BFA in Communication Design with an emphasis on Fine Art at Metropolitan University of Denver, Colorado.
Not too long after graduation, Braden and I decided we were due for an adventure so we packed up our two dogs, parrot and chameleon and made the big move to St. Petersburg, Florida!
I quickly found that color was my passion and as I continue to paint, I explore new meshes of style and technique to constantly push my paintings further with every stroke.
I remember one day in 2nd grade, I got in trouble by the teacher in class for doodling palm trees all over my notebook. The funny thing is, I had never been to the ocean to see them in person! Needless to say, I have had a tremendous pull toward the wondrous ocean and all things nautical for as long as I can remember, which is what made my move to Florida that much sweeter... (or saltier?)
You will find quite the mix on this page. Abstract pieces to touches of the beautiful Colorado landscape and of course my favorite subject matter - anything nautical including sea birds and ocean waves.
Have fun browsing and please contact me for commissions requests and questions.
I can't wait to work with you!
