A Ballarat artist has picked up a 'Young Archie' award.

16-year-old Jasmine Goon, won the 16 to 18-year-old category with a painting of her brother Kevin, titled 'And who shaped you?'
Ms Goon says Kevin is non-verbal which has taught her to approach other people positively.
The children's awards, inspired by the Archibald Portrait Prize, were presented at a ceremony at the Art Gallery of NSW on Saturday.
