Just Giving Art Fundraiser in memory

Posted on

So the last twelve months I’ve been updating lots on my Interactive Wallpaper Project, in which I’ve hand Illustrated a roll of wallpaper, taking it around London Galleries and Spaces including: Debut Contemporary, CGP Gallery and Free Space Gallery asking members of the public to colour in or paint the characters.

I’ve now set up a Just Giving Page in which people can name a character in honour a loved one or indeed themselves as a lasting tribute to everyone whose fought Cancer. In return for the donation I will name a character of you choice after that person, or for a donation of fifteen pounds I will Illustrate that person onto the wallpaper by hand.

The two completed rolls of wallpaper will be exhibited at a solo show at Free Space Gallery in February 2015.

I lost my dear Stepfather Tim to Bowel Cancer in 2009 and now want to put my creative energy into  a project to help others and to honour Tim.

Stress Busting Colouring workshops in aid of ‘Breast Cancer Care’ & ‘Beating Bowel Cancer’

Posted on

Friday was my last ‘Stress Busting Colouring workshop’ at CGP Gallery, In which I have run six workshops altogether (one every Friday during the school Summer holiday period).

I created a new roll of Interactive Wallpaper for these workshops in which families have been dropping into the gallery to add their mark to……..What a wonderful few weeks it has been! the development has been mapped onto the wallpaper as it’s grown, becoming brighter, flamboyant and even chaotic in places….I LOVE IT!

Please keep an eye out as I have been discussing some exciting fundraising plans with the people at Beating Bowel Cancer this wallpaper is just the start.

I’d also like to say a huge Thank you to all of the adults and children who came along and contributed to the wallpaper, you really have brought it to life!

Interactive Art event in aid of Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer 2.

Posted on Updated on

Saturday was my ‘Interactive Art Event’ in aid of Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer (this was the second I’ve held to develop the wallpaper).

The day was an enormous success (even more so than my last in September) Debut Contemporary Gallery was buzzing with people of all ages wanting to be involved with developing the Art piece, the colours from the Chilli installation by Toni Gallagher shone down on the wallpaper from above giving the window space at Debut a warm, cosy feel and the Farrow & Ball paints complemented the Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer pink balloons beautifully.

I aim to hold one more to complete the wallpaper; it will then be exhibited and sold with all profits being split between charities Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer.

I want to say a huge thank you to the Representatives of Beating Bowel Cancer for coming along and getting involved with the painting, Farrow & Ball for so kindly supporting the event by donating the paint, fellow Artist Susana Lopez for helping organise the event and taking wonderful photographs of the day and Debut Contemporary for all their help and giving me this opportunity.
