A north Norfolk artist's work will be seen by about 100,000 people over the next three months after her painting was chosen for the front cover of a British Airways in-flight magazine.

Amelia Mills, from Walcott, was commissioned to create a unique artwork for the Water-themed edition of the quarterly magazine for first class passengers, after her work was discovered on Instagram.

Despite having just two weeks to design and complete the artwork, the result captures the flowing movement of water.

It will hang in the first class Concorde club lounge at Heathrow's Terminal 5 until the end of June.

The 26-year-old said: 'It has been an exciting opportunity to work with a high profile corporation like British Airways.'
