June 2014 - I was commissioned by the Friends of East Peckham primary school in Kent to design and paint a mural on two walls in the playground.

The brief was: bright and colourful, include reference to the surrounding hop farming history, the school motto, the school logo hot air balloon, and the seven school classes which are each named after a different bird.

The mural was painted during two gloriously sunny weeks in June. On the final day, all the children and teachers at the school helped me to paint the "grass" in the mural painting by each adding their handprints.
