Hello! I’m Alexandra Clark. For the last two and a half years I’ve been studying for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University within the Cambridge School of Art.
I’ve had a wonderful time and learned a lot about myself and image making. I work mainly in gouache and pencil now. I also enjoy sketching and using coloured pencil to make images.
My current preoccupation is fairy and folk tales and these are the main inspirations for many of the pieces you can see in my portfolio. With a focus on the female perspective, I believe these stories still have a powerful message for us in the modern world.
One of my passions is illuminated lettering (including gilding) I’ve created these as gifts for friends and family. Related to this I also completed an alphabet book, also related to fairy tales, as part of a University project.
Please get in touch if you are interested in knowing more about my work.
