“The art of being happy is the power of extracting happiness from common things.”
—HENRY WARD BEECHER
Hi, I’m Alyssa Haun—designer behind Haun Drawn. Since I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed drawing, painting, and designing works of art. In middle school I was a member of an elite group of students who was permitted to skip gym class to take advanced art classes! Art class was my elective throughout high school, but once I got to college I shifted my focus strictly on business, communications, and digital design classes. Since graduating college in 2011, I have become a Senior Graphic Designer in Northern Virginia. I love what I do, but I’m been looking for a creative outlet outside of work for myself. I’m thrilled to be able to get back into the rhythm of creating artwork on a more regular basis.
I love being able to merge my artistic abilities with modern day technology. While nothing will ever replace pen, ink, or paint on paper, digital art gives me the flexibility to create pieces anywhere and creatively extend that artwork to a vast number of possibilities (canvases, tapestries, mugs, cards, etc).
I am passionate about all design—digital, graphic, interior, and fashion. My blog posts are focused around that. I hope that my content will help others have the confidence to tackle home projects, try new recipes, and find inspiration through my creativity.
