Young artist of the week: Tiffany Konechny, 17

Tiffany Konechny, 17, Sutherland secondary

Art teacher: Dorothy Foster

Favourite art: portraiture

Favourite artist: Robert Bateman

Her teacher writes: Tiffany has become a very accomplished artist in pencil portraiture. She has chosen to illustrate two of her hockey idols in the Vancouver Canucks. Her shading and graphite gradation really lends itself to these subjects and gives such realism to Kevin Bieksa and Daniel Sedin.
