Susan Alison


Susan Alison lives in Bristol, UK, and writes and paints full-time. She paints dogs, especially Border Collies, Corgis, Whippets and Greyhounds. Every now and then she paints something that is not a dog just to show she’s not completely under the paw – mainly, she’s under the paw...

Short stories of hers (not usually about dogs) have been published in women’s magazines worldwide.

In 2011 she was presented with the Katie Fforde Bursary Award (with which she’s incredibly chuffed).

She has a dog blog (with the occasional non-dog painting) at
