Arbroath Herald’s winner 
of this year’s Draw Your 
Mum competition shyly accepted her prize with a cheeky grin.

Five-year-old Jessica 
Thain won a framed print of her drawing and £50 in 
shopping vouchers following our Mother’s Day 
competition.

Of winning the prize for the best drawing she said: 
“It didn’t take me that long 
to do, I was just finished at 
ballet and I sat down to do 
it before my Dad picked me 
up and then I went out to 
play.”

Jessica’s drawing shows her mum in a purple dress with long hair.

She said: “I’m not sure why I chose a purple dress, I’m not sure she would even have worn one. I can’t really remember what her hair was like but I’ve done it really long.”

Jessica’s mum, Louise, sadly passed away on July 10, 2011, leaving husband Stewart, Jessica and Robert (3).

A keen artist, Jessica said she will draw anything: “I like drawing butterflies, and princesses, everything really, even snails.”

Mr Thain said the picture will go nicely in Jessica’s bedroom.
