Allison Wyatt: Turned Home Into an Art Studio

Allison Wyatt was a sweet, smart little girl who would turn parts of her family’s Newtown home into an art studio by taping her pictures to the walls, her family said in a statement. For her six short years, she made the world a better place.

Allison Wyatt, daughter of Cheyanne and Ben Wyatt, was one of 20 first graders killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Friday.

Wyatt’s family released a statement on Tuesday and a photo of a smiling Allison in a green floral dress sitting in front of a pink cake, celebrating her sixth birthday. 

“Allison was a kind-hearted little girl who had a lot of love to give, and she formed special bonds with most people who spent any amount of time with her.  She loved her family and teachers especially, but would often surprise us with random acts of kindness - once even offering her snacks to a complete stranger on a plane,” her family said. 

Allison loved drawing and wanted to be an artist, her family said.

“She loved to laugh and was developing her own wonderful sense of humor that ranged from just being a silly six-year old to coming up with observations that more than once had us crying with laughter,” her family said. 

“Allison made the world a better place for six, far too short years and we now have to figure out how to move on without her.  She was a sweet, creative, funny, intelligent little girl who had an amazing life ahead of her.  Our world is a lot darker now that she’s gone.  We love and miss her so much.”
