A teenager has had her painting of a famous Norwich landmark picked to be part of a national exhibition in London.
Megan Elliott's oil painting of Norwich Cathedral will be part of The Royal Society of British Artists (RSBA) annual exhibition, which will be held at the Mall Galleries from March to April next year.
The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies and the RSBA were looking to find the most outstanding work by final year A-level students across the country.
The 18-year-old's work was submitted by the Norwich Decorative and Fine Arts Society.
About 284 pieces of art work from 73 schools across the country were submitted and the former Wymondham High Academy's work was selected as one of the 22 final pieces.
Miss Elliot, who is now studying history at the University of Exeter, said: 'It is an honour. There were loads of really great artists in my class.
'In the project I had done a lot of work with architecture and I was studying it. I went along to Norwich Cathedral and I found a lot of inspiration there.'

She added: 'This term I have not been able to do much art as it has been quite full on. But I hope to pick it up again as a hobby.'
