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.

The teen will be painting the Hillier garden, which is hoping to be awarded its 73rd medal at the 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.

“It would be something good to paint because they are an extension of the landscape and if I paint them well it’ll help me in paintings that I do in the future.”

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