UK Elephant Parade
Artist & Designer of one of the selected elephants
At the end of 2009 I submitted a design proposal to the Elephant Family, of my painted on a template. My design was subsequently accepted for the London Elephant Parade and I completed my painting called Flocking to the City on a life size model of a baby elephant in 2010. Apart from improving my painting skills I also gained confidence and awareness of working on a very large scale, had some experience of working in a studio environment (alongside 10 other artists whom I shared a studio with) and built upon my experience of promoting myself as an artist. My design proved popular, was made into a miniature collectable, was sold at auction and enabled me to be asked back in 2011 to take part in their next project (The Big Egg Hunt) and the current UK Elephant Parade.
