BIO OF FIRST PLACE WINNER:

My name is Vania Scott, I am a South African that has been living in England for the past few years. I have always loved art since being a child but in May 2019, I decided to try painting for the first time and loved it. I have not had any training so unsure about anything technical but I practice daily and like any skill, the more you practice, the better you become. I still have so much to learn. Art and music are my passion so it made sense to me to paint on a vintage music sheet.
