About Alyson 
I'm a life-long artist with a background in performance, writing and education. I graduated from DePaul’s Theatre School with a BFA in Theatre Studies and DePaul’s School of Education with a M.Ed in Secondary Education (English + Theatre). I trained in makeup artistry at Makeup First Chicago and worked in makeup for almost a decade, informing my approach to color and texture. My art is held in private collections in San Diego, New York, West Palm Beach and Chicago. Recently, I did an installation of 3-D mobiles and mixed media pieces exploring unity-consciousness entitled  "Punks + Doves"  (click to see)  at St. Chrystostom's Church in Chicago's Gold Coast. "The Punks" are currently hanging at La Borra Cafe on State + Delaware also in Chicago. 

In addition to my art practice, I'm an actor, screenwriter and have taught the arts in cultural institutions, Secondary English + Theatre in the Chicago Public Schools, yoga and Reiki. My daily practice of journaling is essential to my creative expression.
