MATURE student Emma Martin has been chosen for a national art exhibition, despite only recently receiving formal training.

Her artwork was chosen by readers of The Guardian for the Your Art, Our Walls exhibition, which runs until October 8 at the newspaper’s offices in London

Emma, who lives in Angmering, has just starting the final year of a fine art degree at the University of Chichester.

“I had no formal art training before attending Chichester, so I am very proud and grateful for what the university has helped me achieve over the last two years,” she said.

“Obviously I will continue working really hard and learning as much as I can over the next year. I am hoping it might prove inspirational for other people considering following their passions.”
