Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Creative Kernow

Caroline Pedler

Caroline has worked as a freelance illustrator since 1997, with a bias towards children’s books since 1999.

She has created over 50 children’s picture books for various publishers since and worked with musicians, large retail stores, card companies and publishers all over the world and recently worked with local company Rodda’s on a new line of food products. She teaches BA Illustration at Plymouth College of Art, guest lecturers on occasion on MA Illustration at Falmouth University, Truro College, and has taught her own illustration short course and continues to run creative and process based workshops locally, in and around Cornwall, including Port Eliot festival and an Illustration weekend workshop at Newlyn School of Art coming up again in Oct 2016. She has exhibited her work extensively in the South West and in London, with solo shows in Bath and St Ives. Since returning to her home county of Cornwall, she has exhibited in various exhibitions in and around Newlyn, St Ives, Falmouth and Truro and continues to collaborate with fellow creatives on projects and events. She runs her own small press An-ti-dote Press, where she creates books with subtle narratives and imagery with a playful imprint of Little Ant Press that houses her own children’s books in progress.

In Jan 2016 she set herself a challenge that would mean creating an image everyday for 366 days (2016 being a leap year).

“I set myself a project that invited dedication in a light hearted way. I want to start doing longer projects that test my short attention span and commitment vs distraction. I’m on day 185 of creating a collage a day and still going strong! I have sold a few, run collage workshops, the guardian have shared one, and have a few galleries interested in stocking the prints and some are currently stocked at Artisan at Tremenherre Gardens, Gulval. I can’t wait to get stuck into the Krowji studio to create more of the same.”
