Margaux Carpentier is an illustrator and print maker based in Stoke Newington. She studied in both Paris and Surrey and spent her early twenties playing with pens and various mediums until she developed her unique graphic style. She now adapts her illustrations in 3D as well as large scale murals. Earthy and folk-inspired, her work also draws on fantastical elements and wild imagination. Her books for children include Someone Like Me (2016, Concern Worldwide) and Inside Animals (2020, Wide-Eyed Editions).
