What will be auctioned?

Painting 1: Lupins at Chelsea
During the show, Kieron Williamson explored the Hillier garden and, when he found an area that inspired him most, he stopped to create this, the “Lupins at Chelsea” artwork. The artwork is oil on paper, measuring 6.7 x 5 inches. It has been valued by Picturecraft Gallery in Holt in Norfolk where Kieron’s next exhibition will be held in July, and bidding will start at £3,995 with all monies going to Wessex Cancer Trust.
Painting 2: Blue Waves & Goldrush
This year, two new plants were launched by Hillier at Chelsea Flower Show and both caught the eye of Kieron who has created his impression of them in this limited edition artwork entitled “Blue Waves and Goldrush”. The artwork is oil on paper, measuring 6.7 x 5 inches. It has been valued by Picturecraft Gallery in Holt in Norfolk where Kieron’s next exhibition will be held in July, and bidding will start at £3,995 with all monies going to Wessex Cancer Trust.
The auction will be live from 14th June, closing at 8pm on 24th June 2018. Bids will be submitted via an online auction website.
Kieron’s first paintings sold for a phenomenal £14,000 when he was just six years old; he has featured extensively on worldwide television, websites and in newspapers and his work has been secured for many prestigious private collections, including Royalty.
Discussing the partnership with Hillier, Kieron commented: “Working with Hillier has been fantastic. I was so inspired by the Stihl Inspiration garden that it was hard to choose what to paint! I chose to paint the area that had the most colour diversity. The two new plants offered contrasting shape colour and form, and provided their own challenges due to their own colour-changing qualities. I love painting the outdoors and nature scenes so being part of the Chelsea Flower Show was an experience I’m never going to forget!”
