He may still be a teenager, but 15-year-old Kieron Williamson from Ludham has already made millions from painting.
Dubbed 'Mini Monet', he sold out his first exhibition for £14,000 aged just six, and a second for £17,000.
He's mastered the art of bringing landscapes to life on paper, but today (May 21) he faces a new challenge as he paints at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Despite not being used to painting flowers, Kieron isn't letting nerves get the better of him, instead he's looking forward to the challenge.
In an interview with ITV, he said: 'I'm really excited. I think it's going to be a challenge that will take me out of my comfort zone, but I think it'll be good.

Kieron's paintings from the show will later be auctioned to raise money for The Wessex Cancer Trust.
