‘The Big Hoot’, Birmingham

I painted text on a blank, white five foot high resin owl, as part of The Big Hoot, Birmingham, a Wild in Art project in 2015. My design using the texts A Wise Old Owl nursery rhyme and The Brown Owl by Jane Euphemia Browne, was selected in an open competition and sponsored by the West Bromwich Building Society. The owl was displayed in the pedestrianised street of Sutton Coldfield and it later sold for £8,000 at the charity auction in aid of The Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
