About the artists

Jo Burgess

Natalie Hawkins

Im a 33 year old hippie with a degree in American Studies and Film. A long time ago I lived in Vancouver for a few years and this was the first time I properly picked up a paintbrush. All my creative pursuits up until recently have been recreational.

Recently I've been painting Film and TV characters onto salvaged wood and selling them occasionally. My main employment is working as a optical dispenser at Specsavers in Wolverhampton.

When I first heard about the project I thought it was an amazing opportunity to get involved in, one that would benefit a charity as well as the whole town. Wolverhampton has suffered in recent years and project which would boost the town as well as the people I think is fantastic. I've also never been involved in a public art project before and find it exciting to think of the fun and challenge if my design got chosen.
