Urban Trees

About this project

Living and working in Sheffield it’s impossible to ignore the recent controversy about the felling of many street trees.  A positive to come out of this public sadness and anger is a recognition and appreciation of the ‘ordinary’ street tree,  in residential areas and within the city centre.
By creating a series of urban tree leaf designs, focusing on their unique shapes, colours and characteristics, I’ve tried to rediscover and celebrate these trees with bold and striking representations.
