Alice Tams is an illustrator obsessed by the colourful, the surreal and the anthropomorphic, who is best known for her ongoing series 'Birds in Hats'. She began her career in London with a market stall on Brick Lane and ended up in an artist's studio in Bermondsey, selling products featuring a plethora of birds wearing hats alongside taking on commercial and personal illustrations. In 2017 she decided there were far too many birds in the world to see, so she packed her studio into her suitcase and took her practice on the road. So far she's travelled through much of east and south-east Asia, painting murals and exhibiting in Malaysia, Borneo, Vietnam and Taiwan so far.
She creates her work both digitally and traditionally, though good old fashioned paint on a page remains her favourite medium. You can catch her this Christmas at the London Illustration Fair attempting her most ambitious, large-scale mural yet. If you play your cards right you may be painted onto the wall in pigeon form.
