Ally Shaw
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and as a teenager I decided I wanted to become an artist. I haven't been able to make a living out of my art yet, but I'm working towards that goal, and for several years now my dream has been to illustrate children's books. That dream came true in 2013, and now I'm working on my second picture book project.

I grew up very close to nature and always had a strong bond to all things natural. My style is colourful and lively, often portraying nature with a hint of fantasy; always trying to keep my inner child alive and well!

I create art to make people smile, hoping that the smile may awaken childhood memories. And those memories may lead to a deeper love of nature, which may inspire people to live a more environmentally conscious life.

When I'm not painting I can generally be found outdoors, usually gardening. Most of my inspiration comes from English gardens and Swedish forests. With roots in Scandinavia and Britain I'm very drawn to the folklore and mythology of both places.

Thanks for visiting my gallery!
