The name and social media handle 'Aliphylactic', pronounced ali-fill-lactic, was born out of need. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic condition to many things. In Alice's case, she's intensely allergic to peanuts, shellfish and beestings. Quite fortunately, the name Alice Power is quite common, and so, the need for individuality prevailed. Leaning on her love of pun based humour, Aliphylactic was created.
Alice Power is a young, emerging illustrator based in London but originally from Wexford, Ireland. She studied at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, under Dr. Caroline Madden, specialising in glass. Her work particularly featured the process of casting, diamond wheel engraving and illustration. Alice was awarded a scholarship in 2015 to attend a class in the Corning Museum of Glass Studios to study under April Surgent and Marshall Hyde.
She is currently working with illustrator Miss Led in London and also practicing as a freelance illustrator. She is also studying her Masters in Communication Design: Illustration under Paul Postle & Clare Conway in Kingston University, London.
Her first illustrated children's book, Betsy Bee Wants to be a Beautician written by Majella Delaney was released in December, 2016.
