Alisha Brown, CPSA

Alisha Brown works primarily in acrylics, colored pencils and photo collage. She uses colored pencils to draw attention to small obscure beauties in nature and prefers to work in bright, lush colors. Her acrylic work is often abstract but reminiscent of the natural world, while her colored pencil work is hyper-realistic.
