Nel is an artist whose beautiful paintings have been translated into Coats' Maia brand tapestry and counted cross stitch kits and now fabric. Her first colleciton, Happy Go Lucky, was introduced in 2010. Her newest collection, Sleeping Beauty (due in September) is derived from her favorite childhood story and a series of paintings Nel did on the wall of her daughter's bedroom.
The Prince's Trust recently celebrated its 35th Anniversay. Gemma Arterton, Kevin Spacey, Rod Stewart, Jols Holland and Nel were among the charity ambassadors who gathered along with young people whom the Trust has helped. One person from each year since the trust has been going, including Nel, were invited to celebrate.
At the reception, Nel presented to Prince Charles the original painting "Devoted to You."
