About Emma Carpendale.
Specialising in narrative illustration - Children's picture books, book covers and editorial illustration For my full portfolio visit www.emmacarpendale.co.uk . I also have an online shop - http://society6.com/emmacarpendale.
In 2010 I completed my studies at the University of Northampton where I achieved a first class degree in Illustration.
My passion is illustrating narrative, in particular children’s’ picture books. I like to bring a sense of depth and richness to my work and I love to add in lots of textures, detail and hidden narratives in my picture book illustration. I hope that this detail gives the viewer the chance to revisit my work and spot things they didn’t see first time round. Well, that’s the idea anyway!
I live in Northampton and in my spare time I like to run around my local park and chase squirrels.
