My Life- My Art-About me
So for those of you out there who don't know anything about me...my name is Alisa Burke and by day I currently work at the .University of San Diego as a Marketing Coordinator. By night- My husband and I live on campus in upper classman dorms and participate in a program called Wisdom for the Real World. The program selects USD faculty and staff to live and mentor students in hopes of preparing them for life after college. In exchange for free rent and some other perks, I work about 10-15 hours per week in the evenings on everything from putting on workshops to having our home open for student to drop in
It has really been an amazing and crazy experience!!
I also work as much as I can as a freelance artist, art and the creative process is my life. It keeps me happy and healthy and grounded. I have been doing everything from workshops to commission projects to handmade ornaments for the holidays. I currently have my hands in all sorts of stuff and one day hope to retire from the day job so I can concentrate full time on art.
