Alex is a British illustrator and Puppet Maker, now living in Sweden.

 

After graduating she was awarded an Emerging Talent Prize in illustration and now has a residency at Transit, Stockholm. Her second children's book will be published through Natur & Kultur in autumn 2019.

Alex began her career in animation working on projects such as Shaun the Sheep and the Oscar nominated animated film Pirates.

 

Working in animation has had a great influence on her approach to illustration. "You can tell a story through art; stories with characters that express the many different quirks and peculiarities of our personalities."
