Hello. My name is Alyssa Fosnight and I am a Doctor of Audiology student at Vanderbilt University. I’m in my last year of the program, so I am very excited about graduating and becoming a Pediatric Audiologist. My hometown is West Milton, Ohio, so I feel obligated to say O-H ___! I mainly draw/paint for fun in my free time. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and I try not to confined myself to a sheet of paper (ex. A couple of times I took some window crayons and drew on my windows). What I love about art is that it has no rules or boundaries, so for me it allows me to just be me. I look forward to participating in the Nashville Chalk Fest as an artist!
