Sonam Yangdon's sketches about love and life, of people growing old alongside their cherry blossoms, have generated a fan-base in Bhutan.
But the 18-year-old hopes to share her work with more Border residents through RAW, a new program run by MAMA to exhibit the work of young artists.
Ms Yangdon first became connected with the art museum as a Murray High student last year, showcasing her work in the Year 12 Art Show.
"It was called 'Dear Grandparents' and it was about how I am thankful to my grandparents for raising me when my parents were studying abroad," she said.
"Since then, I've met more people at MAMA. I'm hoping to participate in other programs."
Ms Yangdon was asked to be a tour guide for Sunday Art Chat, which runs tours in English, Mandarin, Bhutanese, Swahili and French.
"I was excited because I'm really into art and I'm always looking for opportunities to meet creative people and get involved in museums," she said.
Ms Yangdon has lived in Albury for three years with her family but only recently started social media accounts for her artwork and clothing design.
She hopes her work will be selected for RAW, which will run from March to April next year.
"My art is whatever I think and feel - I have a book, and in that book I write how I feel and turn that into stories," she said.
"Some are all digital art, and some I do with pencil and edit digitally.
"I am hoping to do some art in the future; I am joining CSU to do a Bachelor of Business.
"RAW is a really great opportunity especially for young people, because they get the chance to show it to a lot of people and reach valuable audience."
MAMA curator Michael Moran said the new annual open call program, for artists aged between 16 and 21, was hoped to reach "untapped potential".
"We want this to be something that builds every year, that the community can own," he said.
"They don't have to go through a high school stream; it's something that can give opportunity to young people in alternative education and who are recent school leavers.

"We're sending the word out through our education networks and more grassroots outreach to get as many young people involved as possible."
RAW will remain an avenue for Year 12 students to exhibit their work, and all forms of works from mixed media to performance will be considered.
Applications can be submitted online via MAMA's website and close at 5pm on Tuesday.
