Listed below is a selection of source material consulted during the development of this database. Where an artist has a book or publication dedicated to their work, it is listed against their individual entry. Similarly, if an artist has illustrated a book that gives an example of their work, it is cited within the bibliography of the artist's curriculum vitae. Not every such publication is listed as this would be extraneous. When obituaries have been published in the national newspapers, these have also been consulted. Naturally, the internet has proven very useful for links to specific websites for organisations, art schools and various other related and relevant matters.
We would like to offer sincere thanks to the authors and publishers of all publications consulted, particularly those listed below.
