George Larke

Creative Arts Award



My name is George Larke, I'm 14yrs old and I am a student at Wreake Valley Academy in Syston.

JHMT's Support

In my spare time I enjoy swimming for Loughborough Town Swimmimg Club but my main passion is art especially portraits, this is something that I would like to make a career out of after taking Art at University.

At the moment I am very keen to develop my skills in digital art using a drawing tablet and the JHMT Inspire Awards grant will help me to fund this.

My art teacher at Wreake Valley recently nominated me for the 2018 Lord Lieutenants Young Artist of the Year Award and I was very privileged to be invited to the awards ceremony where I was one of the finalists.

I am really looking forward to creating my first digital portrait using a drawing tablet and learning all the new skills that will be available to me.
