"I really like photography and I will soon be working on a fashion shoot, so it's great preparation and experience for that."
Housing association Shape supports people through a range of challenges, circumstances and experiences including mental health problems, drug and alcohol dependency and family break-ups.
It operates housing at Oldfield Park and Twerton.
Janet Errington, Shape's head of housing and support, said: "As well as providing temporary accommodation and support for individuals and families, we help young people into work and training and to take back control of their lives.
"At Shape we passionately believe that everyone has potential and something to offer, regardless of their circumstances.
"The Art Works exhibition shows just that."
She added: "With a little support from organisations like Shape, people can begin to realise their aspirations and look forward to building a positive future."
The free exhibition will run until Tuesday, April 3.
