ABOUT THE ARTIST
Allison Hawes is a preschool teacher and self-taught artist, born and raised in Spokane. She creates art primarily through the mediums of watercolor and digital illustration. Her art journey started after taking high school painting classes and stumbling into the world of digital art when wondering how children’s book illustrations looked so crisp and clean. What followed was a period of exploration and research into how the world of digital art worked. Hawes has taken in as much information as she can find on the subject and has invested in the hardware needed to create. She finds joy in painting animals, forests, and florals. She hopes to illustrate children’s books someday soon.
