Allysa’s very early admiration for the natural world led to a life exploring the intricacies of nature through art. Passionately drawn to both the beauty and biology of wildlife, she explored science illustration as inspired by her research and fieldwork experiences while completing her MS in biology. She now cultivates a life in both worlds, working as a freelance artist from her home studio in the lovely Flint Hills region of Kansas while teaching at the local university.
"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 biological phenomena. I particularly enjoy unearthing obscured elements - the overlooked consequences of anthropogenic effects or the unseen trajectories of evolutionary forces." ~ Allysa Hallett, Flint Hills KS
