Through my work I aim to bridge art and biology in a way that encourages others to view the natural world with a more curious and conscious eye. My personal work depicts intimate ecological portraits, often focusing on species interactions and cycles, and broadly explores fascinating natural phenomena. I particularly enjoy unearthing obscured elements - the overlooked consequences of anthropogenic effects or the unseen trajectories of evolutionary forces.
Allysa works out of her home studio, which is situated on the top of a little ridge just East of the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas. A self-taught artist, she spent her university years studying biology and creating scientific illustrations on the side. She now teaches at her local university, while painting as much as possible during all other hours. She also enjoys gardening, observing, day dreaming, cycling, and playing fetch with her two pup companions.
