Artist: Jess Perrin
Jess Perrin is an illustrator and designer, living and working in Birmingham. Jess loves to create work that appeals to young people, using bright and fun colours as well as cute characters. Jess has created over 55 sculptures for Wild in Art since 2017, raising more than £150,000 for various charities through the sale of her work. For her Home Is Where The Dog Is design, Jess was inspired by the joy and creature comforts of a happy home. Jess’ design depicts a collection of houses, sprawling out into the wider countryside. The limited colour palette in the design helps create a sense of calm and space, reminding us all of how lovely it is to live within a community.
