About ME

Military Spouse - Boy Mom - Inspiration Seeker - Passionate Volunteer - Rescue Dog Mom - List Maker - Coffee Drinker - Foodie - Car Singer - Published Artist


My name is Nerissa Alford. I am a proud military wife and mom of two boys and our rescue pup. I work in watercolor and acrylic paints as an illustrator. My inspiration is everywhere; whether it's from every day life or an exotic trip.

We recently returned from a multi-year tour of living abroad in several countries. This nomadic lifestyle has allowed me to find inspiration all over the world. My travel experiences have been put to good use by observing the beauty of the world's various cultures through my camera lens and channeling that inspiration into my art.
