Description

Local artist Pete McKee has been a busy man this year. Not only has he had to prepare for his biggest exhibition to date and paint a massive new wall mural at Fox Valley, but he’s also painted one of the elephants for Herd of Sheffield (the city’s largest public art event ever).

Marjorie is a tribute to his late mother and mother-in-law (who shared the name). She is also recognises the hard work of the parents of Sheffield:-

To the proud, strong, industrious men and women who grafted till their muscles ached, their hands burned and their flesh tore, so that they could take care of their families.
