The 2009 Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize has been awarded to artist Louisa Theunissen.

Ms Theunissen, 29, from Wrexham, won the £3,000 prize for her charcoal work entitled Deep Inside, which depicts a derelict factory. She studied fine art at the North Wales School of Art and Design from 2001 to 2004, and is a full time artist who now works almost exclusively in Wales.

The competition honouring artist Sir Kyffin Williams, who died from cancer in September 2006 at the age of 88, focuses on drawing. The Welsh artist lamented the lack of teaching of drawing in modern art schools during his later years, prompting the Kyffin Williams Trust to open the drawing prize competition for the first time in 2009.
