William Hall, from Bury St Edmunds, presented his work at the Makers Gallery in Holt over the weekend of March 16 and 17 2024. 

He was joined by fellow artist and co-owner of the gallery John Frith, who opened the pop-up space with his wife Katy in summer 2022.

William said: "I put my art in the gallery to celebrate how much I enjoy drawing and painting and to sell some of them was a bonus.

"It was amazing to meet Kieron and he has inspired me to now try some landscape painting.

"Thank you to John and Katy for such a great opportunity - it was the best weekend ever!"
