Fem Sorcell has painted a nature-themed mural on the side of R.A.G Vintage on Norfolk Street.

The store, whose name stands for reused and green, opened in November on the site of the old Post Office.

The artwork was snapped on New Years Eve by Andy Carter, who runs the Steel City Art website showcasing the best of street art in the city.

Originally from Cumbria, Fem’s website says she takes inspiration from nature, mythology, sacred geometry, comics and animation.

She graduated from Leeds Arts University with a BA in Surface Pattern & Textile design, and previously took part in the Big Draw in Sheffield with primary schools in the city.

Founded in 2000, The Big Draw is a visual literacy charity that promotes the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression and invention.
