Elmer The Botanical Elephant

The Details

Name: Elmer The Botanical Elephant

Location: Castle Court, Royal Avenue

Created by: Kerrie McNeill

Design Inspiration

The Botanical Elephant design is based off my interest in plants and the natural world. I have always enjoyed creating artwork based around my love for plants and nature in a colourful, playful way. This piece is no different. I wanted to create a design that reflects my work entirely and there was no better way than using my favourite colours – pink and green to create a botanical tropical forrest pattern all over this giant elephant.
