This year, I was invited to take part in Hampton Court Palace's community and public art project. Wild in Art, along with Hampton Court Palace Learning team commissioned 14 artists and writers to work with local groups in producing original stories and each decorating a 5ft gnome.

I got to work with master storyteller Ben Haggerty of Crick Crack Club and graphic novel Mezolith (as well as many other fantastic works including Jim Henson's Storyteller) and the youths of local school; Hampton Court House.
