Her cheeky design celebrates a famous aspect of the city – but will remain a secret until the trail hits the streets on 7 July.
Koren, a solicitor in the Private Client and Charities team, based in Nottingham, has been with the firm for just over 18 months. She said:
“I feel so honoured to be part of Hoodwinked. The whole city will be completely transformed for the summer, and it’s brilliant to be involved.
“I did A level art, and I paint pictures as gifts for friends – it’s something I enjoy that’s very different to the day job. Painting can be quite therapeutic when you have been looking at books and screens all day!”
Koren’s winning design has been painted by the Nottingham Playhouse Paintshop team of Claire Thompson and Anna Roberts – who usually work on a much larger scale, painting the sets for Playhouse productions.
The Hoodwinked sculpture trail will be on the streets of Nottingham for 12 weeks, from 7 July to 30 September. It’s a mischievous twist on the tale of our city’s iconic outlaw, Robin Hood, and his cunning disguises to outwit the Sheriff of Nottingham.
The trail will feature 33 robins, all the same shape but each unique, painted individually by artists. Each one is sponsored by a business.
At the end of the trail the sculptures will be auctioned to raise money for the Hoodwinked charity partner, Nottinghamshire Hospice.
