Artist: Julie Greenaway
Julie Greenaway is a former Wiltshire College student who now works as a Graphic Designer in Exeter. As a creative, Julie’s role and work is continually growing and evolving; she is always inspired by the world around her and looks to nature for a fresh take. Julie is always keen to be involved in art projects and, as a big dog lover, the Swindog was the perfect canvas to not only get creative, but give something back to the community and Julia’s House children’s hospice charity. Her Woofley Wiltshire design aims to take you on a journey, encompassing many of the surrounding features and history of Swindon, from the steam trains to the football club.

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!Find out more
