Hi, I'm Alissa, I'm 20 years old and I'm an art student at the Northern School of Art in Hartlepool. I have just started my first year here studying graphic design. I love finding inspiration in everything, especially in areas such as nature that are interpreted so differently by every person who experiences it. I have recently completed my fourth orchestral composition project, alongside Manchester Camerata and Orchestras Live, all about the poet William Wordsworth and his lifetime of works. I have always been a creative and musical person and I love trying to combine the two together to create unique pieces. Working on this recent project has allowed me to combine various aspects together, such as nature, poetry, and art. I'd love to change the way young people view orchestral music as it really can be made for every generation and it can communicate messages in ways no other art form can.
