Snowdog:Wild North East

The artist works with wildlife as her medium and she adores exploring the wild heritage on her doorstep in the North East. Her design brings together images of local wildlife in celebration of what we can find when we venture outdoors. 

After meeting the young people who use St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice, the artist was inspired to include butterflies, to signify short, but beautiful lives. She added hedgehogs, to represent the much loved hedgehog house at the Hospice, flowers from the Hospice’s beautiful gardens and signposts showing the breadth of the region that the Children’s Hospice covers.
