AN ARTIST has had her work displayed at a prestigious London exhibition.

Marie Harnett, of York Road, Hitchin, was one of the top graduates from four Scottish art schools to be selected for the BraveArt exhibition at the Atlantis Gallery on Brick Lane.

She said: "It was an amazing event and I ended up selling the majority of my work, with six of my drawings going to a gallery."

Marie, who attended the University of Hertfordshire's School of Art and Design, enjoys working with pencil on paper, oil on copper and even creates her own videos to express her art.
