One of the star features of this year’s Illustrators exhibition, which is on display now at the Gallery, has been the debut of the Australian illustrator, Elise Hurst.
Visitors to Chris Beetles Gallery over the last few weeks have been enthralled and amazed by Elise Hurst’s remarkable illustrations to her extraordinary and beautiful book, A Storyteller’s Handbook. We have no doubt that a star is born and her illustrations make for essential viewing.
When the great Michael Foreman, arguably Britain’s best children’s book illustrator, was faced with Elise Hurst’s illustrations for the first time, he was ‘blown away’ by their skill, detail and beauty.
