Name: ART06 – Nature to Nurture
Artist: Kathleen Smith
This design shows the importance of nature throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help people relax, reflect and help with their mental health. On the front it shows a scene from the countryside with the city in the distance with all the wildlife that can be seen throughout our countryside. On the back it shows a park which was an important place for people in cities and towns to connect with nature during the lockdown.
Kathleen makes public art and craft by making small objects usually made from metal through casting, cutting or 3D printing. She has also painted many sculptures that have been seen across the UK. Her work focuses on places and their history.
