She was born in the north of Stockholm, Sweden in the so called “Venice of the North“. Sue Allison grew up in a small town village where the neighboring village is about 10 miles away and where friendly elk and reindeer can be seen in nature. She later studied art history and graphic arts at several universities.
Sue Allison is known for classic religious and romantic Christmas designs, which allow childhood memory to come to life.
She remembers full well that feeling of glee and has captured that innocence in her charming paintings. The enchanting and charming Scandinavian mood of sleepy villages, children’s bright eyes and a kind and lovely Santa Claus is unique to her work.
Her designs can be found throughout the world on products like art prints, puzzles, textiles, collector plates, tins, gift bags and boxes, greeting cards, advent calendars, etc.
