Angela Ashford

Her chosen design for the first Big Hoot – A Hoot to Suffolk, features the oxlip, a flower synonymous with Suffolk, entwined among scenes from around the county, encapsulating the beauty of the area.

This is not the first time Angela has supported St Elizabeth Hospice and its Wild in Art trails. As she also designed the popular Elmer Travel Trunk which featured in the hospice’s Elmer’s Big Parade Suffolk 2019, before finding a new home aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Balmoral cruise ship, following an auction of the statues in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice.

“Taking part in Elmer’s Big Parade 2019 was a great experience and it was fantastic to see so many people coming to Ipswich, especially families, to enjoy the trail. To be asked to take part in the Big Hoot 2022 is a real privilege, but to be chosen to be the artist which designs the first Hoot, I am still pinching myself!”
