Against a repeated background of pale blue origami swans on pink we see a young man in profile. His hair and his t-shirt is made up of a collage of newspaper print.
Amy Brown (Dublin, aged 15), S.W.A.N., 2019.

Amy Brown (aged 15)


Pencil and collage on paper 

Amy (15, Dublin) says: "I’m fifteen and I moved from London 4 years ago. I started art as a subject in first year and have continued it to third year and thoroughly enjoyed it. My portrait is of my brother who has special needs. The swans in the background of my portrait represent S.W.A.N - this is an organisation that helps raise awareness for people with special needs, but without a formal diagnosis such as my brother."
