Carla Koala

I'm an illustrator and writer who aims to produce fun, fresh, contemporary designs with a touch of BAM! I love 'seasidey' things, French things and secretly want a little whitewashed cottage by the sea or in France! I don't like crabs, they are a bit spooky and go sideways which is just WRONG!

I generally work in the medium of bright watercolour inks and pen with the odd dollop of gouache or pencil and maybe a bit of collage or sparkly bit thrown in. Sometimes I add different typo via computer but 99.9% of my work is hand drawn - even the lettering, and I likes to keep it that way as it feels more original.

My designs are published for * Fabrics * Books * magazines * cards *Wrap * bags* Social Stationery *postcards *posters * tableware* housewares* ceramics* *stitch craft* and *craft stamps*. anything really.

I also write *sentiment, verse, ditties and captions * usually with a humorous slant or just a good old heartfelt line or two.

My style is generally quite on trend and contemporary using current colours and wording.

I tend to specialise in ** DOGS and CATS ** and these have gone on to heaps of products including cards/bags/wrap/ceramics/stitch sets/die stamps/ books and furnishings.
