Hi, Im Alisa.

I'm a freelance Illustrator/Designer specialising in the children's market - illustrating picture books, middle grade books, online content, magazines and products for kids. My studio space lies in the beautiful Kent countryside, UK.

Originally trained as an Animation Assistant, Graphic Designer and Advertising Creative I've worked in a variety of creative roles in the animation, advertising and broadcast industries. I've absorbed a myriad of skills from these - from concept development, through design in every detail to directing and creating content for cross media platforms. All of which I am incredibly grateful for as they continue to inform every project.

Drawing is my first love. It has been an element of every creative job I've ever had and now, happily, it is the epicentre. I love creating characters and finding fresh ways to weave narrative with design. I'm hopelessly addicted to children's books, animation, and the smell of coloured pencil shavings. 

Selected Clients include:
Pan Macmillan, Ivy Kids, Bloomsbury, Simon & Schuster, Didier Jeunesse, Little Bee Books (Bonnier Publishing), Hardie Grant Egmont, Chirpy Bird (HGE), Amazon Education, Cengage Learning ...
