Liverpool artist Charlie Weatherstone commissioned by Hillyer McKeown
Established and well respected Liverpool artist Charlie Weatherstone was approached by Hillyer McKeown to create artwork for its Liverpool office. The legal firm decided to commission a feature piece for the entrance to the office which would reflect its approach to growth, innovation and supporting its local communities.
The artist was inspired to create ‘Flora’ after researching the firm. Charlie commented:
“I wanted to create something eye catching and also elegant. The word ‘growing’ on the website jumped out at me. I chose to express this theme using a variety of materials, presented in a graphic and impactful way. I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this project.”
At Hillyer McKeown the conversation began with: how can we make the most of the stunning features of Exchange Station while welcoming visitors into Hillyer McKeown’s reception area from Tithebarn Street? The answer came with the idea of creating an original piece of artwork.
Hillyer McKeown’s Group Managing Partner, Lindsey Kidd said:
“From the outset, we knew that straightforward branding in our new Liverpool office would not reflect the impact we wanted to make in the city. Something entirely different would be more fitting. We wanted to create a feature piece for our reception which represented our innovative approach to doing business combined with our newly established footing in the heart of the commercial district. Please drop in and judge for yourself, but I think that Liverpool artist, Charlie has captured this with her statement artwork, Flora. Thank you to the organisers of Chester Arts Fair for recommending such a talented local artist to work with us.”
Charlie’s work is versatile and her commissions include materials for events, fashion, Novotel Liverpool, festivals and book covers.
