TEENAGER Jessica Forshaw got plenty of help from her family when she started work on her A levels.

Jessica, a pupil at Trinity Academy, Thorne, drafted in grandparents Noel and Maureen Honeybone to be the subject of her work, which has been put on show at the school as part of a display of GCSE and A level art.

Jessica, aged 17, of Moorends, used different media to produce a collection of items associated with her grandparents and used pictures of their younger days as a centrepiece.

“The theme was elderly people and emotional attachments. I’ve always been very close to my grandparents and I wanted to create a positive piece around them,” explained Jessica.

“My granddad is renowned for wearing knitted jumpers and grandma has always worn scarves so I made those with images and items connected with them.”

Mrs Honeybone was amazed by Jessica’s creation.

She said: “I think she’s wonderful and what she’s done here is fabulous.

“It’s been really special and lovely to spend a lot of nice times together discussing things that she could use in her art work.”
