"When I am drawing, I feel like I understand what I'm doing."
Known for getting into the 'art zone', Jeremy Davies' passion hasn't gone unnoticed, although it's clear he does it for his own enjoyment regardless if anyone else likes it or not.
He is one of three kids who clearly know how to get their creative juices flowing.
Embracing their artistic powers, these Tamworth Pubic School students placed in the UNESAP 'Let's Hang It' competition, an initiative of the University of New England and Neram Art Gallery.
These masterpieces will now sit proudly on the walls across the university campus.
Winning her category, Charlotte Manners' work of bright colours automatically puts a smile on the viewer's face.
"I love the colours," she said about her piece called 'Kitty Cat'.
In the Primary section, Ruby Thuhan was a finalist, with Jeremy coming away both a finalist and receiving Highly Commended.
Ruby's work was inspired by an Aboriginal story about Boab trees.
"I was pretty excited and proud when I found out. I love being creative because you can do anything you want, you can't make mistakes, and it's just really fun," Ruby said.
While Jeremy's black and white charcoal muse was a wasp, he says really, "it can be anything you want it to be."
The school itself was named the Most Outstanding Primary School, and art director and teacher Sally Burrows was incredibly proud.
"It's an amazing school, and this is great for the hardworking and passionate teachers," she said.
"It just goes to show that visual arts is still strong."
