I'm so pleased to announce that my Golden Peacock bench raised £7000 at a charity auction on Friday 15 September - the joint highest sale of the night.

On the night, the Sitting With Jane auction raised a staggering £95,700, with 75% of that going towards the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.


The Sitting with Jane trail was a summer-long art trail to mark 200 years since Jane Austen's death - and saw Basingstoke reclaim their most famous daughter as their own. My Golden Peacock bench was inspired by the most famous Pride and Prejudice book cover.

In case you're wondering what happened to my other bench 'Once Upon A Time in Steventon' - this was sold privately to the bench's sponsor.
