Sixteen-year-old Shania McDonagh has received accolades for her stunning artwork before, but this was the first year that she won the overall prize at the Texaco Children's Art Competition across all age categories. At such a young age, this teenager has the kind of skill most adults could only dream of.
Shania may look like an ordinary teenager, but she is a brilliant artist.
This was her award-winning piece, called "Coleman". And no, it is not a photograph.
It's an incredibly lifelike pencil drawing. No wonder the panel judge called her "one of the most talented artists of her generation."
