alissa taylor | email: alissact@actdesign.us | www.actdesign.us/photos.html | Alissa is a graphic designer by day, and an artist by life. With a BA in Communications Design from Carnegie Mellon University, her art is a personal exploration in slowing down amidst this busy world. Her photographs focus on unnoticed details, the tiny frayed corners that give our world authenticity. Some of her photos inspire pencil illustrations, and in the time spent rendering, Alissa is intrigued by the idea that she can raise these commonplace objects to the level of art, of beauty, of “that worth paying attention to.”
