EMILY CAREW WOODWARD

About

Both my rural upbringing and my current urban life inspire my work. The romance and deep, rich histories from bygone times are woven into the fabric of my paintings. Artists that have inspired my style are Edward Gorey, Edmund Dulac, Arthur Rackham, William Morris, and writers such as Beatrix Potter and Roald Dahl are undeniable influences on my daily work.

The fables and stories that they have illustrated or written are sometimes used as starting blocks for my compositions.

My work is bold and rich and most usually finished with touches of gold leaf to add another layer of luxury to my designs.

I have honed my style to fit a range of disciplines such as book design, newspaper articles and I’ve even designed costumes for the opera.

I have exhibited my work across the globe from Taiwan to Paris to Piccadilly.
