Allison Missal Akright

I’m a native Iowan and maybe too proud of it.

I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2012 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, with honors.

I currently reside in Des Moines, IA, working as an advertising and media coordinator, as well as instructing digital photo and Photoshop classes at the Des Moines Art Center.

I’m married to a really cool guy named Danny Akright.

In my free time, I enjoy booking binding, embroidery, paper crafts, gardening, baking, and making friends with animals.
