Alex Horley started to draw and read comics while he was still in kindergarten. When he was studying at the art college, he was introduced to Lorenzo Mattotti. Mattotti, in turn, introduced him to Granata Press, for which Horley did illustrating work and a cover for the magazine Kaos. After that, Horley worked on many projects for various publishers. His work can be found in such series as 'Lobo: Death & Taxes', 'Daughters of Darkness', 'Jungle Tails' and 'Sharky'. In the late 1990s, Horley also provided art for 'Battleaxes', 'Frank Frazetta Fantasy Illustrated' and one of his most famous projects, 'Red Stacy'.
