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. That childhood love of the magical dragons and spaceships never faded, and today most of her work is in the science fiction and fantasy genres. 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 from Hartford Art School.
