Artist Bio | Alyssa Salomon is a printer, seamstress, photographer, and self-taught chemist. Alyssa has always loved working with cloth and paper. Her grandfather was a tailor in Brooklyn NY and allowed her to touch voluptuous, luminous bolts of woven wool. As a small girl, Alyssa learned to sew from her mother, and as an established artist, Alyssa learned to screen print during a faculty retreat at Penland School of Crafts. Her favorite color is still fluorescent.
