Alyssa Van Hulle is an illustrator living and creating in Portland, Oregon. The earliest memory she has is of a museum art class, and the picture books and Disney movies that followed sealed her path of image-making.

Her images range from playful to elegant, focusing on vivid color and a balance between shape and line. She believes that her power as an artist is to tell intriguing stories that speak to a variety of people. She strives to create engaging characters as well as use her images to connect with the world around her.

When she isn’t drawing she’s most likely reading or catching up on movies (guaranteed to be accompanied by plenty of snacks).
