ECO EXPO artwork + poster was designed by local artist Marie Hills-Butt

Marie sourced the seaweed and shells from Whitstable beach before washing and drying them.

She then presented the shells and seaweed on white paper before taking photos and uploading them to Illustrator and working her magic. You can see more of Marie's work on her website here.
