Danielle VonHollen has been named a winner in the second annual ATB Financial Young Artists Competition and her painting is one of 30 winning entries which are on display in a special exhibition at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton.

VonHollen said she is pleased and excited to be a winner.

“I like painting, it’s in my blood. I have an aunty that’s an artist and my dad, Jesse, is an artist.”

The elementary student said she was excited to see her painting on display in the art gallery.

“It was awesome,” she said.

To create her winning entry, Von Hollen used tissue paper, pencil crayon and pastels. The following explanation accompanied her entry.

“In this picture it is the end of the planet and it is the beginning. In this picture I made the water a bunch of colors. I made Weesarkejaulk float on top of the water and I made a beaver, a muskrat and an otter. I made the otter try to dive to the bottom and grab a little piece of land for the Weesarkejaulk.”
