Allison Ball was born in East London (SA) in 1978 where she studied design at Damelin, Johannesburg. In 2002 she moved to East London (UK) to pursue her career as a designer, illustrator and printmaker. Allison has a wide portfolio of work in oils, watercolours and ceramics, but her first love is linocut printing. Strong graphic shapes, animals and hand cut typography characterise her bold, often cheeky, monochrome prints. When she’s not working she travels extensively with her partner, the photographer Richard Clactworthy, and their faithful wagon Chuck.
