About Wolf in Shaun’s clothing

Inspired by the well-known idiom ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’, this seemingly good-natured sheep is hiding his real character. Most of us will have met someone who is not quite who they seem and is playing a role to hide their true nature. When we finally see through the disguise it can be unsettling, but sometimes confronting the truth can build our strength and resilience.

Fiona Blair is a local artist and illustrator and undertook a Masters in Sequential Illustration at the University of Brighton. Her portfolio is comprised of detailed acrylic illustrations and rich oil-colour paintings depicting a variety of subjects.
