Alanna Reeves is a Washington, DC based artist and writer. She is a 2015 graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a BFA in Illustration and Concentration in History of Art and Visual Culture. This study and subsequent travel resulted in an interest in language, cultural perception, and origins, with a particular focus on the displaced identity’s pursuit and idealization of the homeland. These themes are reflected through a means of handcraft, narrative, painting, and often times food. Reeves is a current Sparkplug Collective member at DC Arts Center in Washington, DC. Please feel free to contact with questions and comments at
