Bio
Alice has always loved to draw and knew at a young age that she wanted to illustrate books. She and her sister would sometimes tell each other stories while they both drew pictures, and in the evenings when their father read to them, Alice often drew as she listened.

Alice has created artwork for a number of picture books and children's novels, and her illustrations appear in numerous school textbooks and anthologies. She also works as a web designer.

Alice lives with her family in Toronto.
