Welsh illustrator Suzanne Carpenter creates simple, punchy vector illustrations which look amazing when they’re plastered on something. On her website you’ll find her portfolio, picture books, patterns and more. Her Etsy shop is definitely worth looking at for a treat. I love her ‘Day of the Dead’ greeting cards! What’s also interesting about Suzanne is her school visits. Check the Workshops page on her website for more information.
