Watercolour and Gold Leaf on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Emily Carew Woodard is one of the most exciting illustrators in Britain today – operating out of her Waterloo studio, she works closely with the Roald Dahl team, is exhibiting alongside Quentin Blake later this year and is regularly commissioned by major global brands, including Godiva Chocolatiers, Annabel’s Club, Hitachi, McCann, Penguin Random House, The National Trust, John Lewis, Alexander McQueen, The Guardian and many more. A darkly romantic style, evocative of the Golden Era of children’s literature is woven into the fabric of her paintings, with clear influences from artists that have inspired her style, such as Edward Gorey, Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham, apparent in each work. She amalgamates this with her own light-touch and irreverent humour to create some truly charming pieces.
