Hello there! You’ve found the home of Carina Roberts Illustration, where I share insights into my life as a working artist and illustrator. How do you do?
You can click the headers above to discover my current portfolios, a section dedicated to
the highlights of my career as an illustrator (Accolades and Achievements) and of course, my blog! I write about lots of different topics- some delving into more detail about projects I’ve recently been working on, techniques and subjects I’ve been exploring; others are about the research that inspires my artwork (which, since I live in Britain and am hugely inspired by the natural world, often includes battling the elements while drawing from life!)
I work mostly in traditional media (gouache layered with graphite or coloured pencil) although I do work digitally to edit and prepare my work for purpose using Adobe Suite programs – namely Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. My practice is mostly focused within the children’s book and greetings card markets- I have also enjoyed working on a couple of public engagement projects (the latest being a trail for Colby Woodland Garden, a National Trust property in Pembrokeshire earlier in 2020.) Above all, I love being able to inspire a little spark of my love for nature in others!
I graduated from Swansea Metropolitan University (Now UWTSD, or the University of Wales Trinity St. David) in 2014 with a 2:1 in Illustration – and developed a keen interest in how nature and creativity affect young children one year later when I took a part-time job working in a nursery.
The zeal of the little people I’ve had the privilege to spend time with has helped to inspire my passion for telling stories- both fiction and non-fiction- about the fauna, the flora and the places that can be found when you take a step outside your front door.
