A talented young pupil from Rhu Primary School has had her art work put on display at a prestigious exhibition in the Tannahill Centre in Paisley.

Rosa McLeod, of primary five, was selected as a runner-up in the prestigious John Byrne National Drawing Competition, beating off stiff competition from more than 7,000 entrants.

The exhibition was organised by Education Scotland in partnership with Renfrewshire Leisure, and showcased the highlights of the fifth annual competition by celebrated artist and playwright John Byrne.

John found fame through his paintings and artwork for album covers, along with creating and writing theatre and television. He launched the competition to encourage young people to unleash their imagination and creativity through drawing.
