Allison Colpoys grew up in the Northern Territory and now lives on Wurundjeri land in Melbourne. As an illustrator, Allison combines digital and traditional mediums to tell emotive stories with her expressive use of colour and pattern. Allison originally studied multimedia before succumbing to the pull of illustration and design for commercial publications and children’s books.

Her heartwarming illustrations appear in numerous books for young readers, including If All The World Were… by author Joseph Coelho, published by Frances Lincoln in London. Along with numerous Australian Book Design Association awards for illustration and cover design, Allison has won the CBCA Crichton Award for Best New Talent and two Australian Book Industry Awards.

She was one of 20 artists selected to create work for the Freedom Calendar, a project that showed the dedication of the creative community in highlighting the injustices taking place on Manus Island. All proceeds were donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre to fund programs supporting refugees and asylum seekers.
