Her work draws from a love of colour, 90's Kid's TV, slapstick humour, mid century design and hours spent tending to her garden. She has completed an MA in Children’s Book Illustration and also works as a print designer for U.K based collective New Kid Club.

Carly illustrates picture, novelty and board books for publishers including Macmillan, Penguin Random House and Andersen Press.
