Artis­tic win­ner

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

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.”
