A Blink of Ink…The Creative World of Jill Calder

May 1 @ 10:00 am - September 12 @ 4:00 pm

Based in Fife, Jill Calder has been working as an illustrator since 1993. She is also a calligrapher and a digital artist with a love of drawing, and a passion for bright colour.

This exhibition gives you a glimpse into Jill’s world from her beginnings at art college in Cumbria in the late 1980s to her current collaboration with English Heritage.

On display you will see a wide selection of Jill’s artwork from draft sketches through to published illustrations. Jill’s love of ink shines through in this exhibition and examples of her designs include editorial commissions, gallery work and book art.

Since 2011, Jill has immersed herself in the children’s book world and her first picturebook, ‘Robert the Bruce, King of Scots’ was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards in 2015. In 2018 Jill was selected to be in ‘Drawing Words’, a major British Council children’s illustration exhibition, curated by Lauren Child.
