RENEE Wells has been given an artistic boost.
The Monto State High School Year 12 student won the People’s Choice Award at the 2012 Golding Showcase: Port Curtis Callide Valley Youth Art Exhibition for her work Beautiful Mind.
Renee said she had always been artistically minded and she planned to use her talent to create a career.
“Allmy life I have been an artist,” she said.
“My first childhood home had a wall for artwork.
“I have made submissions to all universities that provide art courses.”
Renee’s impressive piece was the winner from a field of 150 entries.
The young artist said she had a simple but positive message for other aspiring artists: “Give everything a go”.
“Don’t listen to what other people say,” she said.
“Just go for it.”
