About me

Hello! I’m Cara Rooney an illustrator and plaything-maker from Dundee. In my work, I like to pair limited colour palettes with bold painted shapes and charcoal drawings to establish playful compositions. I'm interested in applying my style to different areas in design including illustrated children's books, activity books and book covers as well as editorial and packaging illustration. Email me at caralouiserooney@gmail.com :-)
