Hello! My name is Alison and I illustrate from my home in Perth, Western Australia. I enjoy almost every illustration 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 worked for ReadyEd Publications for 10 years and have also provided illustrations for picture books and a variety of other uses. And I also do portraiture. My latest book is Clancy the Quokka, by Lili Wilkinson, published by Allen and Unwin - But watch this space, I have new exciting releases on the schedule for 2020! When not drawing, I can be found walking my dog, reading, playing the piano, watching old movies and needle felting.
