My Story

     Alyssa Reynolds (b.1992) is an artist, musician, and life coach based in Madison Wisconsin. Their work demonstrates a balance of lifelong creativity and spiritual practice. Combining their love of life, nature, and the ethereal Alyssa creates with the intention of bringing joy and contemplation to those who witness their crafts. 

     Since 2018 Reynolds has shared their artwork throughout southern Wisconsin hotspots, festivals, and venues. Their philosophy of sharing their work has always been focused on community values and economical pricing. Alyssa believes that everyone deserves to experience beautiful art and the monetary option to place that art in their homes.

     Alyssa's art seamlessly weaves the earthly and celestial realms, capturing the interplay between the psyche, the environment, and our collective role in it. Their paintings use thousands of strategically placed dots to shape movement and form, creating a unique style they have named nouveau pointillism. The canvas comes to life with brilliant neon colors, reflective features, and glowing accents. These versatile works are light reactive and reveal different aspects of themselves depending on their environment.
 

     These abstract images are a manifestation of countless hours of reflection and study; so the artist encourages the viewer to look deeply and find meaning unique to themselves. “Take what you need” and embrace the fun, playful, mindful, intentional coincidence of their work.
