Emily Sutton graduated 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 detail and is strongly influenced by the landscape and creatures of her surroundings in the Yorkshire countryside. This, as well as all kinds of wonderful objects found in and around her home, have formed the inspiration for a series of prints that have been published by Penfold Press since 2008.  A visit to the museum of folk art in New York inspired an ongoing interest in folk art of all kinds, and 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious remain strong influences along with the american lithographed children’s books of a similar era.
