Indira Carmichael has a huge smile even when she isn’t winning art prizes.
Duncan McLaughlin snapped this lovely shot of the shire’s arts coordinator at last year’s River of Art Prize, when she was highly commended for the black-and-white portrait of her son in the background.
Last night she won gold for the gorgeous portrait, at right, of her fittingly named daughter, Golden.
