Guard Dog - The Big Dog Art Trail

Artist: Michelle Heron
Michelle Heron specialises in realism paintings of high street shops and urban landscapes. In 2018, Michelle appeared in Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year and she has exhibited in several prestigious exhibitions, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. She has designed sculptures for numerous Wild in Art trails and always loves seeing children (and adults!) react to her sculptures.

Sponsor: Swindon Borough Council
Swindon Borough Council is the official Learning Programme Partner for The Big Dog Art Trail. Thanks to funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the council are delighted to be supporting The Big Dog Art Trail and Julia’s House, and are particularly excited to see what the town’s budding young artists will create with their own Swinpups.

Swindog Auction

After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog.  Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!
