On September the 21st, I was dashing around north Birmingham searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 66: Hedwig Owl by Michelle Heron.
Michelle Heron is a painter based in London. When she’s not painting owls, Michelle has special interest in depicting seemingly ordinary and mundane scenes that are often overlooked. Many of her paintings stem from the disappearance of socially and historically important buildings and her love of vintage signs and shop fronts. Michelle has designed and painted sculptures for similar public art events in London.
