About Alyson 
I'm a life-long artist with a background in performance, writing and education. I graduated from DePaul University’s Theatre School with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Studies and DePaul’s School of Education with a Master’s in Education (Secondary English and Theatre). My art is held in private collections in San Diego, New York and Chicago. Most 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.

In addition to my art practice, I'm a professional performer (click for my On-Camera Reel), award-winning screenwriter and have taught the arts in cultural institutions, Secondary English and Theatre in the Chicago Public School system, yoga and Reiki. I trained in makeup artistry at Makeup First Chicago and worked in makeup for seven years in production and for major brands which inspires my approach to color and texture. My daily spiritual practices of journaling, yoga, and meditation are essential to my artistic expression.
