Emily Sutton, Multi-talented multi-media artist.

November 7, 2010

Emily Sutton graduated in 2008 with a BA in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art,

having also studied at York college, and for a semester at the Rhode Island School of Design.

She says ” My work incorporates a love of pattern and detail and is strongly influenced by the

landscape and creatures of my surroundings in the Yorkshire countryside, as well as all kinds

of weird and wonderful objects found in museums and antique shops.”

A visit to the museum of folk art in New York inspired an ongoing interest in folk art of all kinds,

and she is also influenced by 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious,

and the american lithographed children’s books of a similar era.

Now based in a house on a hill in the middle of nowhere, she is currently working on

the illustrations for a children’s book as well as producing work for various exhibitions

and a new fabric range for St Judes Gallery called ‘Curiosity Shop’.

Incidentally St Judes also have a show in a the Bankside Gallery in London, and their gallery showcases

the very best in British printmaking with limited edition prints from artists including Angie Lewin,

Mark Hearld, Jonny Hannah, Chris Brown and Rob Ryan.

      They’re really special aren’t they. I love the way she has so many different elements and styles to her work too.
