Toronto-based illustrator, printmaker and surface designer Alanna Cavanagh

"I have always been a big fan of Alanna Cavanagh’s work. Her jaunty depictions of everyday items like a men’s shoe or a pair of scissors remind me of the exaggerated pointiness of ’60s-era Disney film One Hundred and One Dalmatians or the early advertising work of the young Andy Warhol."
Karen von Hahn, fashion columnist, The Star

Internationally acclaimed illustrator and printmaker Alanna Cavanagh's signature whimsical style is at once simple and sophisticated (think 1950s Paris). Famous for her intentionally distressed covers for a number of Penguin Books classic reprints, Alanna - a Riverside resident - has had her work featured in a host of magazines, including Apartment Therapy, Canadian House and Home and Covet Garden.

Alanna graduated from the University of Toronto with a humanities degree before beginning her illustration career. She studied printmaking in Toronto at Open Studio and in New York with Lotta Jansdotter and her client list is as extensive as it is impressive. Included are Neiman Marcus, The Toronto Symphony, The New York Times, Tattly, Crane stationary, Bon Appetit Magazine, Real Simple Magazine, Four Seasons Hotels, InStyle Magazine, Forbes Tokyo, Smithsonian, One Kings Lane, VISA, The Globe and Mail, Hudson's Bay, Wall St. Journal, National Post, Simon and Schuster, Hollace Cluny, Little Brown and Co, Arnold Worldwide, Air New Zealand, Type Books, Chicago Tribune, Good Egg, Harper Collins, The Atlantic, Elle Magazine and Papyrus.

Living up to the playfulness of her illustrations, Alanna catalogues an incomplete list of things she adores: Saul Steinberg, Paul Rand, brogue shoes, vintage bar carts, Stephen Sondheim musicals, wandering in bookshops, kilim rugs, my partner Myles and the word 'aplomb'.

NEW to Dimensions: Sage Szkabarnicki-Stuart

Sage Szkabarnicki-Stuart is a 23-year-old up-and-coming photographer living in Toronto. Completely self-taught, Sage uses herself as the subject of most of her photographs, which, she says, is both vain and necessary, "because I am alone a lot of the time!"

Sage’s work explores how humans interact with their home environment. Focusing on the central question What defines a place as home?, Sage highlights aspects of the day-to-day that are embedded in routine. Through her photographs, Sage hopes to give viewers a new sense of appreciation for and awareness of the place they call home.

Sage graduated with a degree in animation from Concordia University in 2018. Her work has been recently exhibited at Art Toronto and the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, where she won both the Honourable Mention: Student and Emerging Artists by Emerging Curator awards. She is currently resident artist at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.
