More Information

Adorning the walls of YSP Centre, Town and Country features a delightful display of original and intricate paintings and screen-prints, along with a flock of beautifully embroidered birds nesting in the YSP Shop window.
 
Incorporating a love of pattern and detail, Sutton has taken inspiration from her recent travels to Paris and Southern France as well as scenes closer to her native Yorkshire, including YSP and her own home – which she references in her first ever limited edition lithograph print September Dresser (2014), produced by Curwen Studio and exclusive to YSP.

Based in York, Sutton has worked with many distinguished clients around the world. She has illustrated books for the Victoria & Albert Museum, Faber and Faber, Random House, Penguin and Walker Books and undertaken commissions for brands such as Hermes, Fortnum & Mason and Betty’s of Harrogate. Sutton was awarded the Elle Decoration British Design Award 2011 for her Curiosity Shop fabric for St Jude’s. Town and Country coincides with the publication of Transferware Treasures, a limited edition hand-bound foldout book of the artist’s watercolours of Victorian transferware, published by Fleece Press.

All the works in Town and Country are available to buy, together with a range of exclusive merchandise, designed by the artist, including a tote bag, a range of plates and mugs, a silk scarf and a cut-and-sew tea towel.

Born in 1983, Sutton grew up in rural North Yorkshire. She studied at York College before going on to study at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating with a BA in Illustration, in 2008.
