The studio, based in Hoxton, London, was opened in 1986 and works both by commission directly from artists and galleries, as well as publishing under their own name. Their notable artists include Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Paula Rego, Grayson Perry, Chris Ofili, Eileen Cooper and Craigie Aitchinson, to name but a few.
Cathie Pilkington (b. 1968) is a sculptor and figurative artist renowned for crafting increasingly ambivalent forms. Her sculptural practice combines the interrelated and antagonistic worlds of fine art and craft. She studied BA Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art (1985–91) and was awarded the first John Watson Prize for Art upon graduating in 1991, with a show at the Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. She went on to study Sculpture at the Royal College of Art (1995–97). She is currently represented by Marlborough Fine Art, where she had solo shows in 2007, 2010 and 2014. She also recently had an exhibition The Value of the Paw at the V&A Museum of Childhood in 2012. Her work is held in the collections of the Deste Foundation, Athens, Manchester City Art Gallery and the David Roberts Collection.
