Outside of Madison, Wisconsin, children's book illustrator Alison Relyea-Parr lives in the quaint village of Stoughton with her husband Christopher, daughters Ava and Grace, and their cats Walter and Bella. She grew up in Taylor, a small Wisconsin town, and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, receiving a degree in art and English.

Children's books have been her love since she realized that they were perhaps the best place to make a living drawing dogs wearing pants. She works as a freelance artist and children's book illustrator. Her first book, ABCs of Wisconsin, was selected as a CCBC (Cooperative Children's Book Center) Choices. The readers of Madison Magazine voted Alison as one of the Top Three Artists in Madison. To view her illustrations and work, visit Alison's Portfolio.
