Echo by Charlotte Moreton

Echo has been loaned to ArtCare by the artist Charlotte Moreton for display at Salisbury District Hospital. Charlotte Moreton trained at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture (1999-2001) and combines sculpture and teaching with nature conservation work. Her sculpture is greatly influenced by trees and nature and "her immense sensitivity to people and the environment has given her a flying start in her career as a sculptor" (Rosemary Barnett, Director of the Frink School).
