Budding young artist takes out comp

Cook Islands Bachelor of Creative Enterprise student Fe’ena Syme-Buchanan has won a UNITEC art cover competition with her detailed, fun piece ‘Conundrum’.


She submitted the piece last week for the UNITEC Student Media competition for the cover art of their magazine.

The straight A student says ‘conundrum is an expression of the often confusing and difficult problems or questions we face in university life’.

The 19-year old is completing her first year at UNITEC in Auckland. From Takitumu, Fe’ena has participated in a number of group exhibitions in New Zealand.

The former Nukutere College student will be holding her first solo exhibition in February next year in Rarotonga and will be showing a series of photographic images.

Her long term ambition is to be a photojournalist and illustrator.
