Caroline Tomlinson

After graduating from Central St. Martin’s London, with her MA, Caroline has worked as an illustrator for clients worldwide.
Sketchbook and passport are inseparable for this London based award-winning illustrator obsessed with travel. A natural explorer, Caroline has lived all over the world which has further heightened her wanderlust and love for fashion and culture both of which are a constant source of inspiration.
Her illustrated work, combines beautiful inky flourishes in an endless exploration of trial and error. This is at the heart of Caroline’s process – she believes in making marks and embracing “happy accidents” in order to retains fullness of character and spirit. This helps her work exhibit a loose control which is full of energy.
A selection of brands Caroline has worked with include: Christian Louboutin, Fortnum & Mason, Leo Burnett, Marc Jacobs, Matches Fashion, Rankin, Sephora and SpaceNK.
Her work has broad application across campaigns, retails spaces, book jackets and wine labels. A selection of publications which have featured Caroline’s work are: Hunger, Suitcase, The Guardian, Travel&Leisure and Vogue.
She is passionate about creative collaborations and late 2019 launched a sustainable fashion and home-ware brand ‘The Worn Out Project’ with a range of hand painted ceramics, printed and embroidered vintage clothing all launched in conjunction with Anthropologie.
Recently, Caroline has been incorporating film and animation into her work. Her latest film ‘Wanderlust Illustrated‘ was featured on Mindsparkle Magazine, Inky Goodness and Little Black Book.
Caroline teaches and works with undergraduate students at various Universities and Art Colleges as a visiting lecturer in Illustration.
