Sketches and Designs

Our snail is a combination of a whole number of children’s ideas. Jacqueline Hammond, a parent and a local artist, helped us bring all these ideas together to create our finished piece. The snail is all about making the most of your time, slowing down and enjoying the world. It is about turning off technology and reconnecting with each other.

Name of Snail – MJ 

Designed by: St Mark’s CE Primary School
Located at: St. George’s Church

Photos of the process of painting the snail for Snailspace at St Mark’s Primary School in East Brighton during July 2018. Based on elements of the children’s designs I made a sketch of the snail we now had in mind to paint.

Discover over 50 snailtastic Junior Snails along the Junior Snailway from 15 September – 18 November 2018

Some of the Junior Snails

Our Junior Snailway is made up of Junior Snail sculptures to accompany their full size (i.e. giant!) counterparts across the city.

The Junior Snails have all been decorated by children from schools and community youth groups, with over 20,000 young people taking part. ‘Packs’ of Junior Snails are being exhibited in cultural and educational venues across the city throughout Autumn 2018.

About artbyjaxx

Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands. Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory. Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
