Hello! My name is Alison and I illustrate from my home in Perth, Western Australia. I hold a a BA (Hons) in Design from Curtin University, majoring in Illustration.
I specialise in fairytale, fantasy and historically-inspired illustration but I enjoy almost every topic that comes my way (not so keen on spiders!). Owing to the isolation of Perth (look us up, we’re miles from everywhere!), I’ve developed a number of illustration styles so as to be as versatile as possible. I love working in them all. I have been working for ReadyEd Publications since 2010 while also providing illustrations for picture books and a variety of other uses. And I also do portraiture.
My latest book is Feral Fergus, by Sioban Timmer, published by Jasper Publications here in Perth.
When not drawing, I can be found walking my dog, reading, playing the piano, watching old movies and needle felting.
