An artist from Cheshire is celebrating winning the prestigious Turner Prize.
At the age of just 31, Helen Marten from Macclesfield has already won a number of accolades for her sculpture.
She's expanded her awards cabinet after being named winner of the 2016 Turner Prize.
Born in Macclesfield in 1985, the London-based artist has studied in some of the country's most prestigious institutions, including the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, the University of Oxford, and Central Saint Martins.
But the success of her work has stretched around the globe, with pieces and exhibitions featured in Norway, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Miami and New York.
The £25,000 jackpot she received for her Turner Prize installation will add to the £30,000 she scooped last month for winning the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture.
Marten is known for using sculpture, screen printing and her own writing to construct pieces that reference both contemporary and historical themes, whether they are everyday or more outlandish.
Her installation for the Turner Prize was divided into three sections and used objects such as coins, cotton buds, eggs and snakeskin to produce a playful collage.
She described the work herself as "husked down" to "geometric memories of themselves".
Organisers of the competition described her work as inviting the viewer to become "archaeologists of our own times, to consider family items as if we are seeing them for the first time".
Marten's first notable award came in 2008 when she won The Fitzgerald Prize at Oxford's Exeter College.
The following year she was awarded the Boise Travel Scholarship and in 2011 was recognised at the Prix Lafayette and was shortlisted for the Luma Award.
She went on to win the award the following year.
