Anissa Lewis was born in Covington, KY in 1974. She attended Knox College in Galesburg, IL and received a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art in1996. After graduation, Lewis was a resident artist at the Vermont Studio Center and returned to Knox College as a post baccalaureate to further her studies in drawing and painting. She went on to Yale University School of Art and in 1999 graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking.

Upon graduation from Yale University, Lewis moved to Philadelphia, PA where she became deeply involved in grassroots community arts projects and teaching. Her activities included coordinating an artist-in-residence program for the Camden County public school system with Perkins Center for the Arts; teaching adult drawing classes at Temple University's Pan African Studies Community Education Program (PASCEP); team teaching arts based women empowerment classes, titled 'Women are Powerful' at a Philadelphia County prison drug abuse unit with PASCEP Prison Outreach Program; teaching a rites of passage program for teenage girls and painting public murals with high school students with Woodrock, Inc.; painting a permanent installation celebrating African influences on Puerto Rican culture for the Norris Square Community Gardens; and participating in a group show and panel to discuss art and social justice with GeoClan.
The summer of 2006, under the auspices of ArtWorks Inc., she and other teaching artists worked with high school apprentices on the concept and creation of a mural for the Pleasant Ridge community, entitled 'Welcome to Pleasant Ridge.'
Lewis has been the recipient of awards and honors which include Artist-In-Residence, Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT in 1996; the Phillip Morris Fellow, Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT, 1997-98 and 1998-99; and a 2008 Artist-In-Residence award from the NY/Beijing Residency Program in Beijing, China.
Most recently the artist was juried into the Hampton University Museum's "New Power Generation 2008", an exhibition that focuses on emerging and working artists "who are creating new forms and charting new directions". The exhibition at Hampton University Museum features 23 artists and 42 works and runs until July 26, 2008.
Lewis will be the subject of two major solo shows in 2008 and 2009.
