Name: Retail Therapy

Location: Birmingham

Created by: Alice Newman

Sponsor: Greggs

The closure off all non-essential shops and retail outlets during lockdown has changed the face of our High Street’s and the retail habits of us as a nation. This sculpture celebrates the tireless efforts of our front line, retail, key workers and salutes the hard work and long hours of a super force of delivery drivers, order pickers and distribution hubs, keeping the UK supplied with groceries, medicines, pet purchases and pretty much anything that can be boxed and sent!

Alice has been drawing ever since she was little, and is very happy to now be working as an illustrator and printmaker from her home studio in Edinburgh. She sells an ever expanding range of greetings cards, prints and other paper products.
