Chicago artist Alyssa Rakel Judlo Swilky exudes creativity aside from her high energy and zest for life; she leaves a trail of her own style and flair everywhere she goes. Her passion toward the arts is deeply rooted, as her grandmother was an artist and interior designer as well as the first woman to have her own showroom at Chicago's famed Merchandise Mart. Upon graduating from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, Alyssa interned for interior design firm, Nate Berkus Associates. Fascinated by this innovative atmosphere her love affair with art and design fully emerged. Since then she has had the opportunity to create for the NFL, Crate & Barrel and Coca-Cola to name a few. Whether making art or creating interior spaces she is constantly exploring new, imaginative ways to foster her artistic talents. Alyssa currently resides outside of Chicago with her husband and two children who she claims to be her best creations.
