A TALENTED art student from Royston is exhibiting her work in London this month.

Emma Anderson, 21, of Old North Road, is an art student at Cambridge Regional College in Cambridge and the exhibition is celebrating her success in the field of art, along with her tutor, Jill Eastland and other members of staff.

Emma, who has Downs Syndrome, is displaying a variety of her paintings, fashion designs and clay samples as well as ceramic pieces and woodwork which she creates at Rowan Foundation, a social enterprise in Cambridge.

Emma said: "I'm very happy and excited about the exhibition because it's an achievement, considering my degree of special needs."

Emma became interested in art when she was working towards her art GCSE at Bassingbourn Village College with the support of her learning support assistant Gill Darnel.

Mirka Anderson, Emma's mother said: "The exhibition is a great celebration for Emma's family and her tutor, together with all those who have been encouraging her for years."

The exhibition will be taking place at The Foundry, Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch until January 22.

The exhibition will be moved to another gallery in the future for permanent viewings.
