moth05face- Wonderful Amy

Artist: Carolyn Short

Sponsor: Williamsons Solicitors

Location: 45 Lowgate, HU1 1EN

About the Design:
The Wonderful Amy is inspired by 1930s design and Amy’s love for both flying and fashion. Her plane is flying towards a stained glass sun leaving behind it a trail of fabric and flags, representing the countries she flew to. The logos of the Gipsy Moth, the ATA and Hull’s coat of arms can also be seen in the design. The artist has also featured a fish pattern originally seen in fabric, reminiscent of the 1930s to represent the oceans and the fish merchant business run by Amy’s family.
