Alyssa Wood is a 25-year-old American artist currently pursuing her MFA in Studio Art at the University of Miami, where she also received a B.A. in Biology. Originally from a rural area outside of Nashville, Tennessee, Wood's work combines her interest in the natural world and her experiences growing up as a young feminist woman in the southern United States. Her work has been described as anarchic in nature and explores the body as a subject, focusing on aspects such as sexuality and death.
