About Alice Tait

Alice Tait is a popular British illustrator who loves to draw. Alice loves taking inspiration from the hustle and bustle of life around her and is often out and about with her sketchbook capturing interesting faces or well-loved land marks. However Alice still loves nothing better than an afternoon in her studio, elbow deep in old type books and coloured inks, with her constant companion Roger the sausage dog.

After graduating from Bath in 2002 with a first class degree, Alice set up studio in London and has been busy ever since, with a client list including
Vogue, Penguin Books, The Times and Waitrose. In recent years Alice’s city map illustrations have proven especially popular and led her to create her first licensed product ranges which have met with great commercial success.

Alice was spotted by Metrostar in an article in The Observer which tipped her as “ … the next Emma Bridgewater”. Since joining them, she has already had her first picture book accepted by Walker Books.

Alice’s licensed gift products are produced by Temple Island Collections and are sold in many iconic attractions and outlets serving visitors to the UK, including John Lewis, WH Smith and Waterstones. Metrostar is now seeking to extend Alice’s designs into new product areas such as stationery, ceramics, home textiles and children’s clothing.
