Alyssa Sinnen | Illustrator & Storyteller

I was born and raised in rural Minnesota. My passion lies in telling stories and creating accompanying illustrations. I attended Minnesota State University Moorhead (BFA, 2016), where I studied illustration and creative writing. My colored pencil and watercolor paintings are inspired by the combination of everyday situations and childlike nonsense, as well as more melancholy and mysterious themes.

When I am not writing silly stories or drawing goofy characters, I can be found reading copious books, drinking too much coffee, or getting lost in nature.
