"There is one thing one has to have: either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art, and knowledge."
-Friedrich Nietzsche 

 

Why, hello there! My name is Alissa Breakiron and I am an Illustrator 23 years old. My other names are happy, happyfeet, smiles, smiley, skittles, rainbow, sunshine, happy-go-lucky and bubbles. I've been told I'm an optimistic and bubbly person! I am open to everything and am very spontaneous. My hometown is Austintown Ohio, a small, grey suburb of Youngstown where everybody knows everyone. My mother is a musician and my father, an artist. I have a passion for both and debated a lot between the two when it came to my future, but here I am! At 18 years old, I moved out on my own to the big city where I grew independently and learned art at Columbus College of Art and Design. Art is something I want to do and know I will enjoy for the rest of my life. The most joy I gain from it though, is the reaction of everyone looking at it. I always hope to make people smile and to inspire. Maybe if my passion shows in my work, it can inspire someone to find a passion within themselves. Another major goal of mine is to do some good in the world with my abilities and one day leave my mark. I am an artist, and I am here to make the most of it!
