Alyssa is a floral designer who is only now beginning to view herself as an artist, and tangling with the term.  

She is an Event Floral Designer at Vault + Vine in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia.  

Alyssa insists that she will never love Philadelphia as much as her childhood home outside of Pittsburgh, but stranger things have happened.

Her favorite flowers are blue ones and brown ones.  

Locally grown flowers and foliage have a large part of Alyssa's heart, as well as the flower farmers who grow the product themselves.

Her two favorite herbs are lemon balm and rosemary.

Alyssa enjoys platonic affection, hiking, camping, and the perfect gleaming ink trail from a pen.
