circus-dog-whiteIllustrator Alison Fairbairn creates quirky and cute images with a sense of fun and whimsical feel.

She is from London but her half-Japanese background has been an influence on her style of work, growing up with manga and being inspired by the colours and lines of Japanese art and cartoons.

She is a largely self-taught artist so loves to experiment with different techniques including digital and watercolour. However, she is always drawn back doodling little characters with paper and ink that turn into fully fledged designs. Her favourite things to draw include fashion, food and animals. Her work appeals to children and playful hearts.
