What's New Pussycat?

A new month and a new project: this April I will be working on a charity art tiger for animal conservation organisation Elephant Family. I was honoured to be invited to design a sculpture for this year's public art event which will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland. With the enormous success of last year's installation of hundreds of elephants around London, this year Elephant Family are focusing on other endangered species, such as the crocodile and hornbill, that share their habitats with the Asian elephant.
