Alice Pattullo is an illustrator based in East London.
Research is at the heart of her practice, and her work is often inspired by British folk tradition and superstition.
Alice is inspired by mid-century design and therefore strives to create a nostalgic aesthetic in her own work through colour choices and composition.
Originally from Newcastle, Alice graduated from Brighton College of Art in 2010 with a first class degree and an enthusiastic no-nonsense attitude.
Since graduating Alice has worked predominantly with screen print, producing limited edition prints which she exhibits and sells across the country and internationally.
She moved to London in 2012, a decision she doesn’t regret as it means her order book is always full of commissions to work on for a variety of clients.
Her portfolio includes Crabtree and Evelyn, Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft, Design for Today, Faber, Fortnum and Mason, Gardens Illustrated, The Ginger Pig, Little Toller, National Trust, Sainsburys, The V&A Museum and The Village Voice.
Alice’s graphics are lively and distinctive and her beautiful sketchbooks give an insight into the creative process.
Although her completed work is loaded to the brim with bright colour, Alice primarily works in black ink when sketching.
In 2017 Alice exhibited Of House and Home, her largest solo show to date at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. If you were lucky enough to get to see this you will not have been disappointed. The exhibition included 60 new limited edition screen prints taking inspiration from house and home.
Transporting you into a forgotten era, Of House and Home took visitors on a journey through a Victorian household from garden to parlour, culminating with the heart of the home – a recreation of a traditional fireplace and mantelpiece. Informed by a love of historical research and the discovery of curious superstitions and rhymes surrounding the domestic every day, Alice’s new works introduced the modern day house dweller to parlour pastimes, homemade plant remedies, kitchen folklore and protective talismans.
We are delighted to introduce you to Alice Pattullo for our CHRISTMAS AT HEART exhibition. Of course, with a bit of luck, Heart Gallery could become home to Alice’s screen prints for a long time. After all home is where the heart is x
