Alyssa Ann Menold

Alyssa Ann Menold is an illustrator currently working out of Grand Rapids, MI. She was inspired to pursue illustration as a child, when she’d spend hours browsing books, not just for their content, but for their beautiful covers.

She received her BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design, where she currently teaches as an adjunct. She is currently working on her MFA in illustration at Hartford Art School.
