Ever wonder who is behind the creative window paintings during the holiday season? I ran across an adorable painting on my hair salons window a few days ago and wondered, where do I find someone to paint my window like that? I could probably paint a very plain snowman and that's about it, but I want a winter wonderland!

I shared that painting on the KORD Facebook page and asked friends to share any cute window paintings they had seen or knew of any. That is where I found the very talented Alicia Michaliszyn. Apparently she is responsible for many of the paintings you see in the Tri-cities during the holiday season. I was curious, so I found her on Facebook and asked to see more of her work. This is where I made the introduction and got to meet the brush behind the paintings. Alicia is a stay at home mom who is also an artist/graphic designer and she has been painting windows in the Tri-cities for 10 years.

She definitely has her hands full! Besides juggling her 3 mini's at home she also paints murals (small/large-residential/commercial), large format vinyl (trailer/vehicle wording) graphic design services (like holiday cards/photo editing, logo design, flyers, etc), hosts paint parties (for business/personal) and teaches art classes for all ages.

I just love window shopping and being more entertained by what's on the window than what is in the window! Plus, I save a ton of money by looking at the window! Thanks for brightening up the Tri-cities Alicia with your adorable creativity! If you would like to contact Alicia you can contact her on her Facebook page HERE.
