Sculpture Description

Artist, illustrator and author Matt Sewell is an avid ornithologist, regular contributor to the CAUGHT BY THE RIVER website and author of the bestselling books Our Garden Birds, Our Woodland Birds, Owls, Dinosaurs and Forgotten Beasts. He has illustrated for The Guardian, Barbour, The V&A and painted walls for Helly Hansen, Puma and the RSPB. ‘Feathered Friends’ was inspired the artist’s belief that Elmer has friends where ever he goes, especially in the woods where birds will flock to him for a free ride and for a natter and a chin wag.
