The Illustration CupboardGallery

22 Bury Street, St. James London

The gallery presents an all-women group of illustrators to watch.
Some have shown regularly over the years and others are ‘new faces’.
Helen Ward and Eva Montanari, already extensively published
grow from strength to strength. We are delighted to show Eva’s
recent Italian classic Pinocchio. Laura Carlin has achieved a great
deal in a relatively short time as has Emily Sutton, known well for
her fine art creations and now launching in to the world of illustrated
books. Anna Cattermole is a rising star of reportage, and we
welcome Louise Yates whose Dog Loves Books is in development to be an animated tv series. 
Laura Carlin: based in London, has achieved a great deal in a very short
space of time. She gained a Masters from the RCA, at which she won the
Quentin Blake Award and has gone to win the Uniqlo Fashion Illustration
Award, resulting in her book Ten Days in Tokyo. She has published
extensively with Walker Books, notably Ted Hughes's Iron Man as well as The
Folio Society. She is also in high demand for commercial work for leading
brands both here and in the US. Laura has been voted, by the Art Director's
Club of America as one of the 50 most influential creative's under 30 years
of age. The artwork in this show produced for A World of Your Own sees Laura
both as an illustrator and an author for the first time.

Anna Cattermole: now based in Cornwall, has made a name for herself as a
reportage illustrator working for many leading brands and corporate clients.
As a reportage artist she only works in situ, never re-working from
secondary sources such as photographs. The rapid and exciting
draughtsmanship of this production leads to a fascinating array of engaging
and fascinating work.

Eva Montanari: from Rimini in Italy, graduated from the State Institute of
Art and the European Institute of Design in Milan but had started out as a
picture book author and illustrator whilst still studying. Widely regarded
as one of the leading illustrators in Italy her work has been published and
exhibited the world over - including several contributions to the Original
Art Show of The Society of Illustrators in New York as well as at the
Ragazzi International Exhibition at the Bologna Book Fair. Her work was
shown here in London at Illustrationcupboard Gallery previously, and we now
exhibit her work for the recently published Italian classic Pinocchio.

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. Her work incorporates a love of pattern
and design strongly influenced by the flora and fauna of the Yorkshire
countryside, as well as a passion for folk art. Further inspiration is taken
from 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bowden and Eric Pavilions, as
well as the American lithographed children's books of a similar era. Working
within the commercial arena Emily is now venturing in to illustrated books
for the first time this year with the forthcoming publication of The
Christmas Eve Tree (Walker Books) later this year.

Louise Yates: is both a writer and illustrator of pictures books. Having
read English at Christ Church, Oxford she went on to study drawing at The
Royal Drawing School, London. This has led on to her winning the Prince of
Wales's Award for Portrait Drawing at the Royal Society of Portrait
Painter's Annual Exhibition. She has published picture books since 2009 and
has achieved notable success with Dog Loves Books both in the USA and the UK
where it won the Road Dahl Funny Prize. This and subsequent books in this
series have been nominated for The Kate Greenaway Medal and are currently
being turned in to animation for television.

Helen Ward: is already known to many as a leading illustrative talent, and
has reached high acclaim on many occasions being short-listed for the Kate
Greenaway Award for The Cockerel and The Fox, in 2003 as well as being twice
runner-up for The National Art Library Award (Victoria and Albert Museum) in
1999 and 2001. She has worked extensively with Templar Books contributing to
their best-selling Ology series over a number of years. It is only a matter
of time before Helen scoops the main prize as we love the superb technical
ability and the extraordinary imagination that she possesses.
