Mrs Murals teams up with Kaya Gallery

Talented local artist Ellie Johnson, well known as Mrs Murals, is working with Kaya Gallery on the Barbican to raise funds for the RNLI.

Mrs Murals has created two unique pieces of artwork using driftwood from local Mount Batten beach. On these she has painted the RNLI Plymouth Severn Class Lifeboat “Sybil Mullen Glover” and the Atlantic Class lifeboat “Annabel E Jones” and they are being auctioned at Kaya Gallery to raise money for the RNLI. 

The RNLI invited Mrs Murals to the Plymouth Lifeboat Station, along with her driftwood art to meet the crew and have a look at the lifeboats. 

Plymouth RNLI Coxswain / Mechanic Simon Jeffery said: “It was a pleasure to show Mrs Murals around our station and boats. We love everything about the artworks she has produced – the colours, the detail, the choice of canvas! Thanks Mrs Murals for your kind and generous support of our Plymouth crew. We are hugely thankful for the generosity of our supporters. As a charity, we are reliant on voluntary donations to power our lifesaving work.”

Mrs Murals said “It was such a privilege to be invited onto the lifeboats and meet some of the crew! The RNLI is such an important charity, I’m proud to be able to support them and raise awareness in whatever way I can.”

Mrs Murals created a collection of nautical themed pieces of unique artwork, including the driftwood, which is being displayed and sold at Kaya Gallery. 

Kaya Gallery is taking bids over £300 per item for the driftwood artworks, the silent auction will be held via email at kayagalleryltd@gmail.com. The auction ends on 14th December, with 50% of the proceeds being donated to the RNLI.
