Antonia Woodard

Antonia Woodard - From a very young age I made absolutely everything into miniature books, sometimes with no purpose at all other than to hold the tiniest book in the world in my hand! In 2007 I graduated with a first class BA (Hons) degree in illustration and since then have illustrated for picture books, children's magazines, wedding invitations, logo design, website design, pattern design and hand-lettered typography. I love working with an array of materials, most often gouache, acrylic, coloured pencil and collage to create warm and friendly illustrations. I also sometimes use a bit of Photoshop, although I try not to make it too obvious... I love all things 1920s and am particularly inspired by the nostalgic childhood innocence of the books of AA Milne and Enid Blyton. I grew up in the beautiful countryside of Suffolk, spent the last ten years in lovely Lincolnshire and have recently relocated to the sunny Sussex coast with my lovely husband!
