An Evening with Jackie Morris and Cathy Fisher – Illustrating Childrens Books

Jackie and Cathy are both exceptional artists, best known for their work illustrating children’s picture books, other people’s and their own.

Join them for an evening looking at how their work has developed over the last few years, leading the revolution in the quality of the books that are published for children – yet which are remarkable works of art that defy easy categorisation.

Pandas ChildTaking their work together on the newly published ‘The Panda’s Child’ as their starting point, Jackie and Cathy will explore their different journeys to where they are now, enjoying a level of acclaim that is extremely unusual for illustrators generally, and children’s book illustrators in particular.

Jackie and Cathy will discuss how they work, with plenty of illustrated examples.
