Growing With The Wildflowers: An Artist Interview with Alyssa Parry

Would you mind introducing yourself to the audience?

My name is Alyssa Parry, and I’m absolutely in love with being an artist. I’m obsessed with color, flowers, and vibrance. I am a mom to my darling girl, Violet, and I’m from Salt Lake City, UT.

How did you begin pursuing art?

My sweet aunt Donna used to have an art studio that artists dream of having. It was a cottage-y type studio, filled with her ginormous paintings, huge windows, baskets covering the ceilings full of any medium you could imagine, lacy curtains blowing in the wind and beautiful vines and flowers everywhere. My grandma would always take me there when I was little and up until Donna passed away a few years ago. We would go wild with watercolors, fire, pastels, flower petals, smashed glass, charcoal, airbrush... you name it and we probably threw it on a

canvas. My time spent there is what ingrained creation into my heart and soul.
