Alysia I. Rodriguez was born July 1,1990 in Santa Clara, California. Alysia is a recent graduate from the University of Miami, receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts. As a child, Alysia always pursued her interests in music and art with immense support from her family. She has been professionally and privately trained in both singing and art. Alysia's art and sculptural pieces have been on display at the Lowe Art Museum. Her travels have led her to study cultural aspects in Europe and South America. Her studies and travels allowed Alysia to absorb an acute attention to form, influenced by nature, science, and society. While her concentration has been on sculpture, painting, and drawing, Alysia is experienced in working with every medium, from glassblowing to photography. Her experiences have refined her own visual and conceptual vocabulary as a result of her focus on the points of intersection between sculpture, design, and illustration. Alysia was the first artist to be featured in Compositum Musicae Novae's inaugural concert.
