Elysia produces special portrait for Art teacher Mrs Morris

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil has produced another stunning piece of artwork for a staff member.

Elysia Gilman, who departed the school this summer, was commissioned by Art teacher Suzy Morris to produce a portrait over the summer holidays, which is another original piece from the national competition winner.

The 18-year-old, who was an Art scholar and Prefect during her time at Rydal Penrhos, presented the painting to Mrs Morris last week, who was “absolutely delighted” with the final product.

This portrait follows on from the recent creation Elysia produced for school receptionist Sarah James of her father and ex-Principal Michael.

Elysia is about to embark on the next stage of her journey at Loughborough University after securing some outstanding A-level results, which included an A* grade in Art and Design.

She will be studying Art at the prestigious further education facility.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Elysia is a shining example of what can be achieved as part of our Art scholarship programme here at Rydal Penrhos, and the standard of her work throughout her time at the school was a wonderful sight to behold.

“It was no surprise to see her sensational A-level result in Art and Design, which is sure to stand her in good stead as she progresses to University next month and everyone at Rydal Penrhos wishes her the very best of luck.”
