Alissa Siegal's art is contemporary and expressive with classical roots. Through closely observed drawing and spontaneous paint application, she explores ways of representing the convergence of order and chaos that comprises our world. With her art, she hopes to create an emotional connection with viewers and express some of the complexity, joy, fear, and wonder of being human.
Alissa Siegal lives in Connecticut, creating work in her studio, collaborating with private and corporate clients on commissioned artwork, and serving as an arts educator.
