Artist Word, Illustration

Carrie May

Every week ArtisticMoods invites an artist to tell us something about the ambitions behind their work. This week we give the word to Carrie May. She is a freelance Illustrator and Artist known for her bright, colourful and textural creations. 

My background is in Illustration and I studied at Brighton and the Royal College of Art. I have always had a love for colour and texture- the two distinctive characteristics of my work. I wanted to make this my living and love more and more what I do as time develops. It’s more of a way of life a way of thinking and the boundaries between work and play are more blurred. I love to discover new inspirations away from my studio and I almost can’t help it, like a rustic magpie, collecting treasures when out and about. I am motivated by the feeling that creating my work generates and the responses it receives.

Carries illustrations are distinctive and characterful, evoking a sense of nostalgic charm and whimsy, appealing to both young and old. It can be seen featured on book jackets, in newspapers and magazines, greetings cards and larger campaigns.
