Talented Kimberly wins 'Somerset Young Artist 2009' crown

A talented youngster from East Huntspill, who is just five years old, has won the title of 'Somerset Young Artist 2009' for under ten year-olds.

Kimberly Shepherd, pictured, attends Mark First School, who entered her self portrait into an exhibition in Taunton, where judges chose her work for the sought-after award.

The judges assessed the art without knowing the ages of the youngsters and they were astounded to find out that the winner is merely five years old!

Mum Sharon told "We are extremely proud of Kimberly."

"She's always creating something, and it was wonderful to see that her love of art was recognised by others!"

The age categories in the competition were age 10 and under, 11-15 years and 16-18 years. Kimberly won a £30 WH Smiths voucher for her work.

The exhibition runs until April 17th at The Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton and is open to the general public.
