A talented 15-year-old artist is already making sales at a new Stroud District shop, Sourced in Stonehouse.

Keeley Bingham-Roberts, who studies art at Maidenhill School, has sold seven prints of artwork, ranging from steampunk and watercolour birds to photo-realistic pieces.

“I’ve always liked doing art since primary school. In secondary school I realised I wanted to make a future out of it,” said Keeley, who lives in King’s Stanley.

“It just makes me happy and I like seeing what I can do with it, and express myself with it.”

Sourced in Stonehouse was created to give crafters a platform to sell their products after 2020 saw an end to the craft fayre.

“I like doing realism, but lately I’ve been experimenting with different styles like steampunk,” said Keeley.

Her latest piece is a commissioned watercolour robin.
