Alison Spokes was born and raised in Houston, British Columbia and currently resides in Victoria, British Columbia. She is a self-taught artist who began working mainly in pencils, but found her niche painting faeries in digital media.

"Drawing is something that has always come easy to me, but I lacked the passion for it until I discovered the world of faerie." — Alison Spokes

Alison’s obsession with faeries began shortly after her first visit to Vancouver Island in 2002 when she purchased a deck of faerie oracle cards from a local bookstore. "My intentions, when I bought the cards, were for use rather than for the artwork, but the imagery in the cards became this rabbit hole into the wonderland that is 'faerie,'" she says.

Although Alison maintained her interest in myth and faeries, the years between 2002 and 2008 were preoccupied working on her Bachelor of Arts degree, which did not leave a lot of time for hobbies of any kind. In 2008 she graduated with majors in Anthropology and Psychology. In 2006, Alison got the idea to try digital media from her sister who was creating amazing manga characters in Adobe Photoshop. After years of dabbling and testing techniques and software, but never really completing anything, Alison was finally inspired in January 2010 to complete a series of pieces she calls "Enchanted Insects." This series is currently in progress.
