Olympia

Olympia grew from a conversation in a kitchen shop with Rachel Spratt - we’d both seen a video of elephants swimming in a glass sided pool and between the aisles of crockery and stainless steel cooking pots the idea of a swimming elephant was hatched. I went home to draw and Olympia emerged from the depths of an Olympic sized swimming pool

Here we see reluctant Olympia poised to dive in, but once in, she takes to the pool like a duck to water. Further conversations with Rachel led Olympia to toy with synchronized swimming and more recently throw her weight behind a push up challenge.
