Emily Sutton is an artist and illustrator based in York, a city in England. We visited her website to review her illustration work but found these great fish sculptures that we just had to post. This is what she writes in her profile:
â€œMy 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.â€
â€œA visit to the museum of folk art in New York inspired an ongoing interest in folk art of all kinds, and I am also influenced by 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious, and the American lithographed children’s books of a similar era.â€
â€œNow based in a house on a hill in the middle of nowhere, I am currently working on the illustrations for a children’s book myself (more news to come on that soon!) as well as producing work for various exhibitions.”
