Meet the Artist
Alexsis Simmons planted her creative roots at Penumbra Theatre Company in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has long since integrated into the Atlanta arts scene. Chiefly a playwright and performance artist, clothing design is a relatively new passion for Alexsis. She is overjoyed to be once again working with the amazing folks at True Colors, especially with a fresh new medium in hand.
