Carlstedt has been working as a full time illustrator since graduating from London College of Communication in 2003. She has spent several years in London and New York but has now returned to her home town, Stockholm, where she lives with her family. She has worked with a wide range of clients but is essentially linked to the world of fashion. Experimentation is an integral part of her working process which allows her to use a variety of tools and methods to complete an illustration. Recent commissions include Vogue Nippon, W magazine, Nina Ricci, Jimmy Choo, LMVH, H&M, Refinery 29, Lancome and Tiffany.
