Alexia Tucker is a freelance illustrator working from her studio in Hay-On-Wye. She moved to the countryside after enjoying city life in the Drawn in Bristol studio, and previously three years by the sea, studying Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts.
A London upbringing followed by years spent discovering the wilderness of Cornwall has inspired a particular delight in exploring the subtle details of her subjects. Alexia also takes great joy in bringing together her myriad of characters in unexpected and playful juxtapositions.
Alexia’s life-like creatures and characterful buildings combine delicate line drawing with wit and humour. Her vibrant, colourful work has been commissioned by clients such as Hay Festival, Telegraph, and various festivals, arts venues and advertising agencies around the South West.
Alexia also works as a creative event producer and runs art workshops. She is Paint & Workshop Co-Ordinator for Green Man Festival’s decor team, and is also involved in the production & creative direction of other UK festival venues.
