Hi everyone! I'm Alyssa R. Spencer and I make small things. I'm an illustrator but I also make small paper toys, plush dolls, and lots of other fun things for kids and fun adults with my own characters within my own small world.

I draw all my inspiration from nature, folklore, and children's stories. You'll see a lot of plants, flowers, fairies, and bugs. Lots of bugs. My favorite materials and methods are gouache and collage but I also sew and sculpt and knit and, well, I do a lot of things.



I currently work out of my home studio in Stafford, VA and I make art every single day. I’ve been steadily working towards the goal of illustrating full time, but I need your support. This year I’m also writing my first picture book (!!!) and I hope to find a great company to publish it. Since this is a lofty and time consuming project I need all the help I can get to have the time to devote to this special goal of mine.

Why would you pay for something you already get for free, you ask? I do have an Instagram that I post to almost every day, a portfolio website I regularly update, a YouTube channel where I've begun posting timelapse videos of my illustrations, and that won’t change. Patreon allows you to support artists like me that you love and it allows us to continually create content for you to enjoy and take bigger steps with their business! Instead of having to always purchase something for me, you're support allows me to continue creating work that I love and love to share.

I'm also a mama of two little ones and making art so frequently is important to me and your support will allow me to do that! I enjoy seeing the creative process of other creators and makers so I hope you do too. I want to bring you more content, more works-in-progress, exclusive videos for subscribers only, and more behind the scenes work. Let's make it happen!
