Sculpture Description

Inspired by the beautiful North East coast, Joanne Wishart specialises in creating bright colourful paintings to make people smile. She loves seaside nostalgia and tries to capture memories of holidays at the coast within her paintings. Her work is published into greetings cards, limited edition prints and giftware and sells in galleries and gift shops nationwide. Sparkling iridescent fish scales glisten in the light as this elephant transforms into ‘Elephish’ and makes a real splash on Elmer’s Great North Parade. Hints of fluorescent paint make the scales glisten in the moonlight.
