Fire Fire!

Anna Starling (nee Smith) of Muraldesign was selected for the second year running to paint a large-scale exterior mural in a Scottish town as part of a regeneration project. Anna undertook her largest commission to date when she transformed the 50 square metre wall in Invergordon, Rosshire, into a dramatic scene depicting the town’s fire brigade in action putting out a local hotel that burnt down in 1973. The firemen are depicted wearing different uniforms as the idea was to represent a timeline of fire fighting through the ages. The high street mural is one of eleven that have been completed in the town as part of ‘Invergordon Off The Wall’, a Heritage Lottery funded project designed to give the town a tourism boost.
