Becca's A level art coursework featured paintings and pictures of her mother Denise who died in December. <br />
<br />
An art student who dedicated her A-level project to painting and sketching pictures of her dying mother has been rewarded with top marks for the moving artwork.<br />
<br />
After Denise Powis, 51, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given just months left to live, her daughter Becca chose to stay at home to spend as much time with her as possible.<br />
<br />
The 17-year-old poured over old photographs of her mum, a former model, at her bedside and became so inspired by them she decided to <br />
centre her art course around them.<br />
<br />
She created seven pieces from Mrs Powis' modelling portfolio which included oil paintings, pencil sketches and watercolour pieces.
