Novella has a subjective approach to her work. She encapsulates the shyness and delicacy of her birds and allows them a timid glimpse of the grown-up world, asking to be touched and admired.
Her inspiration is the environment and children's sensibility to it and rotund bodies and large feet on spindly legs are an endearing and poignant demonstration of this inspiration.
Redbridge Council required a lively, captivating outsize mobiles to suspend in the Tudor barn near the children's play area at Hainault Forest Country Park.
Novella's response to this commission is a delightful example of colour and imagery a unique balance.
The result is nine large scale sculptures, which recreate a fairytale landscape with a strong appeal to the child in us all.
