Alyshia McInnes is a multidisciplinary visual artist & illustrator living and working in the Grampians region of Western Victoria, Djab wurrung country. Her practice centers primarily on painting, drawing & ceramics.
Alyshia's work is influenced by her every day surroundings, her love of her local landscape and her admiration for the beauty of the natural world. Her interest in plants & flowers shared with generations of women in her family before her, and her love of visiting gardens and green spaces is something she views as integral to her creativity and wellbeing and something she loves to share through her work. If Alyshia were to describe a central theme in her art it would be an exploration of the human connection to nature. Her work has been described as warm, colourful, playful, and contemporary.
Alyshia holds a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Majoring in Design) and a Masters of Art Therapy. She was a finalist in the Southwest Women's International Art Prize in 2016 & 2019.
