Alesha Krehbiel is a Freelance Artist and Illustrator in Bellevue, WA. She works primarily with fine art mediums such as watercolor and acrylic, while exploring digital painting.
I graduated from Washington State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities in two concentrations, Fine Art and Anthropology. Studying Fine Art providing me with 3 years of experience in digital imaging, graphic design, typography, screen printing, and drawing, This was where I discovered a love for creating and taking projects from concept to tangible product.
