A Look Back at Brilliant Canadian Illustrator Sheilah Beckett (1913-2013)
As I was digging through all the content I’ve researched and written on behalf of my MFA, I was overjoyed to find this illustration history slide deck I did in 2017 featuring accomplished Canadian illustrator Sheilah Beckett (1913-2013).
An extremely talented illustrator
As you’ll see in the following slides, Beckett is an extremely talented illustrator who had a preference for illustrating children’s books and greeting cards, something I aspire to myself in the coming years. Her work is expansive and given her talent and skill, it’s no wonder Beckett was such a successful illustrator.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these slides featuring Beckett’s life and work. I also have slides on American illustrator Charlotte Harding, in case you’re interested.
Feel free to share any comments or to forward the slides on this post with the illustration enthusiast in your life!
