Charlene D'Alessio

Charlene Taylor D'Alessio has been painting and illustrating in the F&SF genre since 1973. She holds a BFA in painting from Syracuse University and an MFA in Art Ed. and Painting. She began her art career as a Graphic Artist in the 70's, became an Art Teacher through the 80's & 90's and continued to do F&SF illustrating and attend SF conventions.

Since 1999 Charlene has been a full-time F&SF illustrator, exhibiting and selling at conventions throughout the USA, Australia & Canada.

Living in Connecticut, the forests and her garden often inspire many of her humorous and colorful illustrations depicting cats, mice, hamsters, owls, bears and dragons. Her hand-painted neckties are well known.

Charlene's artwork has been published by Sunsout, in Robot Magazine and self-published by The Fantasy Den Press. An illustrated Children's book is in the works.
