Hello, welcome to the portfolio website of Alison Mutton.
Enjoy your stay!
I'm a children's illustrator based in Perth, Western Australia. I love to create illustrations for kids, from black line masters in educational publishing to picture books, book covers and beyond. Please browse my portfolio of children's illustration in various styles - from traditional watercolour to fun digital cartoons - for more examples of my work. Just choose from the menu above.
If you like what you see, please contact me, I'd love to work with you on bringing your project to life!
