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.

Alice also has her brand own gift range, ‘Alice Tait London’. It is the number one bestselling London gift range across Britain, and her celebratory ‘Royal Heart’ Coronation range was sold in Westminster Abbey, The British Museum and Tower Bridge amongst others.

Alice is delighted to be represented by Gill McLay at Bath Literary Agency as an author-illustrator in children’s publishing. Alice’s third picture book in her popular ‘No, Nancy, No!’ series due to be published by Walker Books in Spring 2024, in the UK and USA.

Outside of children’s books, Alice continues to make her mark on exciting high-profile projects, for Netflix’s The Crown, and Sunday Times number one bestsellers ‘The Last Hedgehog’ Pam Ayres, Picador, and ‘Hinch Yourself Happy’ Mrs. Hinch, Penguin Books.

Alice has been drawing for a living since 2002, and can usually be found in her garden studio, covered ink and pencil smudges while sketching away. A mother of two young and lively children, Alice loves nothing better than listening in on their conversations for use in an illustration later… and if that gets too chaotic Alice nips out with her sketchbook, for a spot of inspiration from the Georgian city of Bath where she lives.

Alice regularly updates on Instagram, so do check out @alice_tait_illustrates for behind the scene videos, peeks into her sketchbook and competitions!
