This design is a celebration of wildlife along the river Trent. Meandering through Burton, it is the UK’s 3rd longest river and host to a rich variety of flora and fauna. Presenting a spring scene on the waterway the design features the iconic Burton swan as well as several species of birds with their young. The banks are a buzz with insects enjoying the wildflowers while fish swim beneath the calm surface of the water.
As a professional artist, I have worked on numerous art trails across the country and it's always so exciting to help raise awareness and funds for local charities. Bringing art to the streets is such a wonderful way to bring colour and life to public spaces whilst encouraging the public to explore their local areas. The buzz this creates is infectious!
