Willa Heart is the brainchild of artist and designer Alyssa Jill Harris. Alyssa was born and raised in Boston, MA but recently relocated to Camden, SC with her husband. After being diagnosed at a young age as Dyslexic, Alyssa’s mother (whose middle name is Willa) immersed her in the arts knowing her strengths would lie outside of the classroom.
