About Alex Crump
I live with my young family in the Wiltshire countryside along with the soppiest ginger fur ball and the tiniest elderly tabby cat.
I can often be found in my studio in the garden creating work in a myriad of media from paint and pencil to charcoal and photoshop. I love the opportunity to work with both new and established authors in bringing their stories and characters to life. My usual commissions are for bold and colourful animals getting up to all sorts of capers but I do also offer different styles depending on the clients requirements.
My past careers as a teacher, zookeeper as well as other current sidelines of storyteller and charity/museum educator allow me to bring plenty of knowledge and ideas to the work I create.
When I'm not in the studio I like to be out and about on my 'rickshaw-esque' trike with my son backseat driving and playing my guitar and mandolin (but not all at the same time!)
