Young Mayo artist Hetty Lawlor – an 18-year old from Kilmeena, near Westport, and a former pupil at the local Sacred Heart School – has returned from Japan after attending the 19th International High School Arts Festival in Tokyo at which her prize-winning entry in this year's 64th Texaco Children's Art Competition was displayed.

Travelling at the invitation of Japan's International Foundation for Arts and Culture, Hetty attended the opening of the exhibition, which took place recently at Japan’s largest art museum – the prestigious National Art Center in Tokyo.

At the event, described as a ‘global showcase for the world's best young artistic talent’, Hetty’s work was exhibited alongside some 400 other artworks by students worldwide.
