Audrey was 11 years old when she created her art, “Baby Cougar Head“. This painting was selected as a Top Ten Winner in our Spring 2012 national art contest for the 4-6 grade category.
Audrey lives in Dallas, Texas and has been creating art with different mediums all of her life. Her painting was inspired by her Aunt Linda, who is a wildlife artist. “For three years prior to my painting, I had been doing some hard Paint-by-Number sets.” Audrey explains, “Then I wanted something more challenging. So Aunt Linda offered to show me how to do the same steps but from a blank gesso board. We chose a 6 x 6 board to do my baby cougar head.”
In the future, Audrey plans to become an art teacher or own an art studio with one of her best friends.
