““I interpreted the theme ‘through my eyes’ in this piece by portraying how I see my younger sister Jessica as a fiery, warm personality. I highlighted this by the warm colour palette; portraying her wild side through the texture in her hair and her confidence through her pose. I wanted to use the warm tones to relate to her fiery ginger hair, her most defining feature and portray it as something beautiful and crazy, just like her”

She is overjoyed and awaiting her trophy which is to be sent by RIBI.
