Alice Tait (Illustrator)

Alice Tait is a well-known British illustrator who loves to draw. Alice’s favourite commissions are for children’s books, and her favourite thing to draw is dogs, so working on The Ultimate Kids' Guide to Dogs has been a real career high! As well as her work in children’s publishing as an author-illustrator, Alice’s artwork can be seen across adult publishing, fashion, posh food and even her own brand of gifts, which is the best-selling London gift range in the UK. In between high-profile commissions, and being mother to two very active young children, Alice loves nothing better than to nip out with her sketchbook to take inspiration from the streets around her, and the people (and dogs!) she sees.
