My name is Alyssa, and I was born in Midland, MI. I moved to Grand Rapids about three years ago for college, and I’ve tabled at two other conventions so far: Random Fandom Con in 2017 and Almacon in 2018. My first con experience was at Youmacon 2016, and I loved the atmosphere so much. I knew selling my art at a convention was something that I wanted to try out someday, and I finally got that chance in 2017. I love meeting new people and getting excited about shows, books and games with others and even learning about new things I’ve never heard of.
I’ve been drawing ever since I was really little. I’ve taken art classes every year of school, and am now enrolled as a junior at Kendall College of Art and Design. I started out by creating all sorts of different animals and mythical creatures, which is still a huge inspiration for my work today. I also really enjoy medias involving deep storytelling and world building, because it’s the little details that make a story for me, and I love adding little details to my work as well.
