The Happy Mural Project

About The Happy Mural Project

Based out of: St. Petersburg, FL
St. Petersburg-based artist, <b>Alyssa Marie</b> has been playing in the realms of impressionistic style fine art and large scale murals for commercial and residential clients around the globe since 2017. Having spent her first 27 years of life in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and now residing in a tropical paradise surrounded by water, Alyssa derives inspiration from the natural world for much of her work and pushes the realms of realism by playfully altering what is expected of traditional wildlife and nature scenes through her art.

This mural is also part of Murals in Mind, "Wellness through Art."

Inspired by the arts,  as a former chef and successful owner of a street taco and catering business, I became more interested in my advertising and decided to go back to college to study film.  Over 16 years later I have worked on everything from national media campaigns with worldwide brands such as Subaru, BMW, Absolute Vodka and I have traveled the world filming for NatGeo and Travel Channel.  Now, as an award winning photographer and accomplished director and cinematographer I understand the need of social media and online content I eventually created Sunsation Media,  A St Petersburg based production company to help facilitate local business and community with video/ photography content.
