Three artists well known to St Jude’s followers, Christopher Brown, Mark Hearld and Rob Ryan are involved in a fund raising project for The House of Illustration, the UK’s only public gallery dedicated to illustration and the graphic arts, founded by Sir Quentin Blake and opened at the heart of King’s Cross in July 2014.
Amy Dennis studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 2000.

This is Monica Poole's 'Piddock Architecture' wood engraving from 1975, one of the prints that feature in A Printmaker's Journey, the exhibition I've curated for Hampshire Cultural Trust which reopened at its final venue in Lymington last week.
Later this year I'll be exhibiting at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh as part of A Fine Line, alongside Lizzie Farey (who I have co-curated the exhibition with), France Priest and Bronwen Sleigh. I'll be sharing further information about the event over the coming weeks. As part of the exhibition, there will be two work related workshops.
As part of the new work presented at this year's York Open Studios event, Mark Hearld has created a series of hand-decorated platters, a few of which are pictured here.
Artists Emily Sutton and Mark Hearld will soon open their doors again as part of the York Open Studios event.
Running over the last two weekends of April, Emily will exhibit a selection of new paintings, drawings and print. Mark has created a series of new mixed-media collages, limited edition prints and hand-decorated slipcast cockerels and painted platters.
