Ali Edgson


Ali Edgson was born in County Down in Northern Ireland. She worked in the computer department of a Belfast bank before studying Visual Communication at the University of Ulster in Belfast. After graduating with a First, she and her husband Jeff moved to an old chapel in Llanishen in Wales where she enjoyed a successful career illustrating children’s picture books and greetings cards.

After 15 years of this she wanted a new challenge and to escape from the tight deadlines and constraints of illustration, so she began to paint, inspired by the landscapes around her home and in particular the beautiful expanse of the Usk Valley as seen from the Trellech Plateau.
