Alister Colley was born in the Yorkshire town of Harrogate. Alister has always lived in Yorkshire and studied for his BA (Hons) in Art and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University. The course he attended for three years encouraged diversity and exploration and so Alister pursued his first passion, film. It was whilst creating 'Storyboards' (a visual representation of a film's narrative) that Alister rediscovered his passion for illustration.
Alister was nominated and a finalist in the 2010 Fine Art Trade Guild Awards as the UK's ‘Best-selling up and coming artist’. In the following year he was a finalist in the 2011 Fine Art Trade Guild Awards for the UK's ‘Best-selling published artist’. Alister has been a finalist at the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards for the UK's ‘Best-selling published artist’ for every year since 2011!
