Allyn graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston, with a BFA in Sculpture, in 2012.
Her main practice in college was ceramics/fibers, mixed media, and large-scale sculptures. After college she worked as a studio assistant/apprentice to Houston Ceramic Artists/Sculptor, Lotus Bermudez, from 2012-2016.
