Ringling College of Art and Design 2026 Illustration Student
My name is Alisa Nikishin and I am an illustration student at Ringling College of Art and Design. I am originally from Portland, Oregon. I enjoy working in a variety of mediums, from gouache paint to pen and ink to digital art. I also enjoy working in various different styles and in various genres, particularly drawing animals and people. I am inspired by nature, animals, and music for my art. I hope to work as a concept artist and children’s book illustrator in the future.
