Her painting captures a local farmer named John Tucker in his Hi-Vis jacket and knitted hat. Makenzy’s artwork will be shown at the Royal Academy of Arts in July 2021.
The school that she attends tweeted on their Twitter profile:
“Congratulations to Makenzy Beard, Year 9, whose painting has been selected for exhibition at the @royalacademy Young Artists’ Summer Show. The work will be on display in London from 13th July – 8th August. A fantastic achievement, well done!!!
Makenzy is a year 9 student, aged 14, who studies at Bishopston Comprehensive School in Swansea, Wales.
According to her Twitter account, she describes herself as a painter, Welsh hockey player, and footballer.
Among her other hobbies, Makenzy reveals that she likes traveling and netball. She also serves at her local lifeguard’s club.
As seen on her social media accounts, she has done several other portraits of people from her local area and they are equally impressive.
People on Twitter have praised the student’s incredible artwork and many can’t believe that the painting is actually a work of a 14-year-old.
“Wait…Year 9? I don’t know what that means. How old is this human? If a child painted this, I want to know more,” reacted one person.
“That is simply astounding, you’ve captured the man’s character and soul, so much more than just ‘a painting’. What a talent and what empathy at such a young age, I am frankly in awe of this !!!” said another one.
