In 2013 I was approached by Elmgrove school in Brighton and asked to paint a mural for the stairwell, as it was a rather dreary and dull area that the children used all the time. The school wanted to use the space to re affirm there principles and ethos that they teach the children. I requested for all the children to write down words that they believed important in life, as a child and as an adult but also how to gain the most out of life. All the words were put in a hat and I chose the words I felt most reflected how Elm Grove had envisioned the murals theme. I designed the mural so it gave the chance for volunteers to be able to help throughout the commission.
