Donna Newman is a freelance artist and mural painter working predominantly with schools across the Midlands, seeking to inspire young people by transforming their learning environments with vibrant artwork. She was inspired by the Edward Lear poem ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. Donna has comically transformed the owl into a larger-than-life ginger cat with enormous green eyes sitting on top of a fluffy ball of yarn.

The Owls will raise funds at Auction

The legacy of The Big Hoot continues as in September 2024, the sculptures will take centre stage at a glittering auction to raise vital funds for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.
