Alyssa Goss DeLaBruere - Artist -Teacher - Explorer - Storyteller

Atelier Art Studio - Newport, Vermont

Alyssa is an artist, educator, and mother of three.  Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, Alyssa has made the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont her home for over 25 years.  An accomplished painter (oil, acrylic, watercolor), printmaker, collage artist and teacher of fine art and art history, Alyssa is the owner of Atelier Art Studio in Newport, Vermont, a teaching studio for artists of all ages. Alyssa also has spent the last 6 summers teaching drawing and painting with a specialty in plein-air painting at Les Tapies Arts and Architecture Programme and Co-Director of ARCH: Art, Reflection, and Creative Health in the Ardeche region of Southern France.  Les Tapies is an intensive residential art program for high school students from around the globe sponsored by TASIS, The American School in Switzerland.  In January of 2017, Alyssa founded Mend Americaa line of artfully expressed shirts, jewelry and art prints that hopes to symbolize solidarity with all Americans, combat injustice, and promote protection of the environment while giving proceeds from purchases back to organizations fighting on these fronts.

Alyssa is now hitting the road to combine her gifts as an accomplished painter and her passion for activism and the protection of our national parks, monuments, and environment as a whole.  Postcards from the Parks is a multi-year project many months in the making as a way for Alyssa to mentor to others that one small voice from a tiny town in one of the smallest states can make a difference if a person is willing to show up, stand up, and speak out on the issues affecting all of us.  Alyssa hopes to use this grass roots project to lead by example and reawaken people to the importance of continuing to protect these places that were set aside for future generations and educate people about their importance and unique features - geography, habitat, and history.
