About Alice

Alice Tait is a popular British illustrator whose work has graced book covers for Penguin, magazine spreads for Vogue, chocolate treats for Waitrose and party invites for Chanel.

We are very excited to announce that Alice’s first children’s book, ‘No Nancy No!’ which she has written and illustrated, and is published by Walker, is set to hit the shops this May. We will be doing lots of exciting events around that time so follow Alice on Instagram or Facebook to join the party!

Alice also has her own brand gift range, ‘Alice Tait London’ selling across the capital, in John Lewis, Waterstones and The Royal Palaces amongst others. You can shop for her prints and products here.

Graduating from Bath in 2002, Alice hit London with her portfolio to get some exciting early career breaks with The Times, Nigel Slater and Habitat. She’s been drawing for a living ever since, and in between high-profile commissions and managing her online business, Alice loves nothing better than to nip out with her sketchbook and sausage dog Roger, to take inspiration from the streets around her and the faces she meets.

Notable moments from her life as an illustrator include a nerve wracking evening drawing celebrities for Kevin Spacey at The Old Vic, having her worked papped going into Gwyneth Paltrow’s LA home and seeing her Adrian Mole cover for Penguin as a London Underground tube poster campaign!
