The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.

Creative Practice: Owner of Art by Alyssa – a company I built that retails & wholesales products with reproductions of my original oil paintings on them.
Artist Statement: I create colorful artwork that brings joy to the customer, whether it be from receiving it as a gift, buying their own or enjoying my free window displays in my storefront on Cabot Street in Beverly.
