Nicky designed and painted Statue No. 12, which is situated on Whitburn Street (Smithfield Centre) and was sponsored by AV Birch Ltd.
Nicky says: “The Bridgnorth Art Trail was a fun project to be part of. Now that it’s up-and-running it’s great to be able to showcase the work of the children and adults in my art classes, along with my own creative style. They all thoroughly enjoyed being part of something quite unique!
I’ve painted two statues this year, both for local art trails. I’m currently working on a mural for a local hospital which should be unveiled by Christmas. Next year I’d like to be part of more art trails, nationally.”
