CLASS OF 2016
This photograph was taken from an editorial about natural vs.
"man made" beauty. I find it very odd how people of today's society
are so bent on becoming something so far from who or what they
really are to come across as beautiful. To me, the real beauty
comes in accepting who we are without influence from peers, media
or anything other than what is true.

Indiana, Alyssa Dyke is currently majoring in both Art +
Design and Biology at Butler University. Having
experienced many media in her high school art classes, and now her
college studio classes, Alyssa has worked with many materials, from
ceramics to sustainable materials, however, acrylic paint,
watercolor, graphite, and chalk pastel are most often used in her
The exploration of the female experience encompasses many themes
of Alyssa's work; their faces and bodies appear
regularly. These appearances are often given very
vibrant scenes, creating narrative story lines without the need for
text or written word.
In context with exploration, the universe, space in particular,
provides a fair amount of inspiration for Alyssa's work as
well. Space is constantly changing, much like people,
which leads audiences to expect new, developing work from Alyssa as
new discoveries are made throughout the world, and within people
Alyssa has had work in both juried and non-juried exhibitions
all centrally located in Indianapolis, including Tiny at
Gallery 924,Nottingham Forest at the Harrison Center of the

I am from nearby Pittsboro, IN and have always been involved in
creative projects both in and outside of schooling. It seemed
natural for me to formally continue my education in this innovative

director in a yet to be decided field.
