Kings Mill Hospital
The Tree of Life was commissioned by The Organ Donation Trust and is situated in Kings Mill Hospital Reception foyer. The Mural consists of laser cut perspex butterflies and a hand painted tree complete with forget me knots at its base; the three symbols the trust has adopted as their logo.
This mural is situated in the reception area of the building and moves with the sun as it moves across the sky throughout the day. As the light shines through the butterflies bright colours and shadows project across the wall.

'In memory and celebration of all tissue and organ donors who at the end of life, gave a lifetime.'
The Boiler Maker, Nottingham
In December 2014 Red Bull commissioned a group of Nottingham based artists to liven up some of the new independant bars in Nottingham City Centre. I had the pleasure of painting the Boiler Maker Bar with a local graffiti artist Kaption One. Bespoke ivy themed wallpaper now brightens up the space in the conservatory where you can enjoy fantastic cocktails in a Speackeasy themed bar.

Green Heart City and The Urban Worm
The Urban Worm had the pleasure to host the Green HeART City project, a live art event funded by the Arts Council England and Nottingham City Council. Working around the theme of ‘Life’ 10 artists produced 10 very diverse pieces of work using the Wheelie Bin Wormery as a canvas, celebrating gardens, worms and art. The individuality of each piece illustrates the beauty of human diversity, reflected in the natural world.
The final pieces of Wheelie Bin Wormery art, along with 20,000 worms have been given to 10 social enterprises, charities and educational institutions throughout the city, Nottingham is making ‘Black Gold’ in style! These beautiful wormeries will go on to transform kilos of kitchen waste into a highly nutritious organic fertiliser, helping us grow healthy, happy plants whilst diverting a valuable resource away from landfill.
My role witjin this project was to select and coordinate the artists and produce a wormery painting of my own. I have since painted several more wormeries to order.
The Nottingham Playhouse Live painting and theatre open day
The Nottingham Playhouse, situated next to the Royal Albert Hall and the Cathedral is an independant theatre with a large outdoor seating area. The dustbins for the theatres restaurant are situated on the street and were becoming unsightly. We were contacted by the theatre and asked to come up with a solution so we had a live painting day. We tied it in with the theatre open day and had a fabulous live paint where myself and artist Rebecca Autumn Barker MacClean decorated the three industrial bins with theatre themed murals.
The bins are now a popular attraction and provide a bright and eye catching walk to the front of the theatre for its customers.

Recycled Mural, Nottingham City Homes
I was commissioned by Nourish Associates and Nottingham City Homes to come up with a mural made entirely out of recycled materials in a communal garden in Bilborough to provide a screen for the local residents. The design had to be long lasting and durable in order to withstand the english weather so careful consideration about installation was required. CD,S and old vinyl records make up the most part of the mural and they are each attached with bolts and nuts to make the mural last for the 5 years intended.
This mural was designed and made by Anna Wheelhouse and installed with the assistance of new up and coming artist Verna Poppy.
The Chameleon Arts Cafe
I was asked to turn the Chameleon Music Hall into a New York Subway. Myself and Ego Worrier spent three days tagging and layering authentic tags from New York throughout history and some local Nottingham Graffiti writers names too. Embossed wallpaper gave it the New York Tiles look
