Jasmine Canny Lorraine

Age 15

13-15 year olds

I chose to paint my grandma Lorraine as I spent a lot of my childhood with her and grew into the person I am today because of her. Her passion for kindness and thankfulness has always influenced and inspired me. She is one of the sweetest people I have in my life and I used soft textures and colours to try and represent this. I also tried to capture the kind smile and eyes that she is known for.
