Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School senior Laura Sinor scored her first win in an art competition last month.

Sinor entered two pieces in a contest held during the Feis Na Tara Celtic Dance event in Atlanta, Ga. The festival featured Gaelic-inspired dancing, baking and art.

Sinor’s watercolor paintings won her first place in the 16-and-up category.

Sinor’s sister, Erin, a seventh-grader in Port St. Joe, danced at the festival and Sinor found her own way to participate in the festivities.

“It felt good to win,” said Sinor. “I felt pretty good about my chances.”

Originally painted for her sister as a birthday present, Sinor’s paintings will be on display at the high school until May. The artist said that her sister was happy that they won and doesn’t mind waiting for them.

Sinor said that she may enter the paintings in other competitions, but doesn’t see herself pursuing art as a career, citing interest in working as an adolescent psychologist.
