Amelia Mills, of Walcott, was discovered via Instagram and subsequently commissioned to create a unique piece with the theme of water for the quarterly in-flight magazine for first class passengers.

She said: 'It has been an exciting opportunity to work with a high profile corporation like British Airways. It's wonderful that social media offers people the chance to have their work discovered.'

Miss Mills had two weeks to design and complete the artwork and as well as appearing as the magazine cover, it will also hang in the first class Concorde Club Lounge at Heathrow's Terminal 5 until the end of June.
