Alyssa Grenning was raised in midwest suburbia, captivated by animals and folklore from a young age. Drawing became her favored skill—an extension of her imagination and the means to bring myth to life to explore visual curiosities. After receiving a BFA in Illustration from Northern Illinois University in 2005, Alyssa relocated to Philadelphia and pursued her own body of work alongside various graphic design roles. In 2013, she moved to coastal New Hampshire, where she resides today. Her current work embarks on optical illusion, abstract forms, and playful architecture.
