Mark Hearld was born in 1974. He studied illustration at Glasgow School of Art followed by an MA in Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art. His work is based on his observations of the natural world, influenced by mid twentieth century Neo-Romanticism and the gaiety of 1930s Modernism. He is inspired by British artists such as Eric Ravilious, John Piper and Edward Bawden.
Mark has recently completed a major illustration project for a children's book due to be published by Walker Books in 2012, and has more book projects in progress.
Since graduating with a BA in Illustration from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008, Emily Sutton's career as an artist has rapidly taken flight. Exhibitions at St. Jude's and Godfrey & Watt of her bird sculptures and drawings coincided with a 6-page feature in World of Interiors, leading to sell-out shows in both galleries, and a flurry of orders from collectors in the UK, Europe and the USA.
Emily is has just illustrated a charming children's book, 'Clara Button and the Magical Hat Day' for the V&A Museum. Some copies will be available at the exhibition priced at £10.95. She has also just won a British Design Award for her 'Curiosity Shop' fabric, designed for St Jude's.
