A 12-year-old art prodigy has discovered her talent during the months of lockdown.
Trinity Guirguis spent the down time learning how to draw and paint, and by the time school reopened again she had covered the walls of her house with her various masterpieces.
"I pretty much self-taught myself, getting inspiration from apps and Instagram," Trinity said.
"I did arts and crafts, room decor."
Trinity had never taken an art class before in her life, but once restrictions eased she immediately signed up for lessons at Rabbit Books.
Her art teacher Rachael Peck was astounded by Trinity's craftsmanship, saying her drawings had an impressive level of detail and a precise sense of proportionality.
Ms Peck said she had come across many precocious artists who had unearthed their hidden talent during the months of lockdown.
"I started working here after the first lockdown, and we found that so many people were submitting so much more art because they had more time to," Ms Peck said.
"We are expecting that the same thing will happen if there's another lockdown, so we already have plans to accommodate that."

Trinity's mother Heba Azer has a collection of her daughter's artwork proudly hanging up at the KRS medical centre where she works, as well as an even larger collection hung up at home.
Dr Azer said she could tell Trinity had a flair for artistry ever since she was in daycare, where she first discovered her love of arts and crafts.
"We went to the Louvre last year and she would go to see artists she'd heard about. She loved it," Dr Azer said.
"She would notice certain things, techniques the artists used that I never noticed. I was looking for art classes to enrich this talent."
Both Dr Azer and her husband Samih Guirguis enjoy creating art on the side, and during lockdown the family spent some quality time together painting pictures and decorating their house.
Dr Guirguis said he enjoyed painting when he was young, however he said Trinity most probably inherited her artistic talent from her mother.
"Her mother was especially talented in drawing," Dr Guirguis said.
"We don't do it professionally, but we like to do it as a hobby. We're trying to get her away from the screens, get her to do some activities which are good for her."
