At the outset, Alison decided that once costs were covered, any monies would be split equally between Mary’s Meals and towards funding the next book in the Corrie’s Capers series.
Alison is the Arran Community Ambassador for Mary’s Meals. She is delighted her book project is already helping to feed starving children with £6000 donated since publishing The Westie Fest (July 2018) and The Tattoo Toorie (July 2019).
Corrie was born in Edinburgh and lives on the Isle of Arran.
KC registered ‘Dream Dancer’, named ‘Corrie’ after the village on Arran and affectionately known as ‘Corrie Doodle’.
Corrie is a very loving wee Westie who never stays white for long. She doesn’t like to walk too far but will run a mile to greet anyone with a gravy bone in their pocket.
Corrie enjoys surveying the world from her balcony overlooking Lamlash Bay and has been known to chase cats, rabbits and even the odd squirrel – rascal girl! Check out her Blog
Alison is a great lover of Scotland, children and Westies. She lives on the Isle of Arran and can be seen walking her wee West Highland Terrier along Lamlash beach most mornings.
‘Corrie’s Capers’ has been a project in the making for many years, coming to fruition in time for her own grandchildren to enjoy.
“When I heard Alison was looking for an illustrator for a story about a wee westie and its adventures on Arran, I was quick to respond as I couldn’t have dreamed of a better project! Her story is fun and full of charm, making it a pleasure to illustrate.”
Kirsty is originally from Ripon, North Yorkshire but moved to Edinburgh in 2013 to start her degree in illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art. She fell in love with Scotland and its beautiful landscapes and has continued to live here since graduating in 2017.
Kirsty enjoys exploring the countryside with her dog, Pablo, and often draws with him sleeping on her lap.
