A couple of months ago BluethumbArt + Handkraftedco approached me to participate in a project called Created With Care. They paired a selection of Australian makers and artists to collaborate on (and donate) one-of-a-kind pieces to be auctioned for a charity of their choosing.
Josh Pinkus and I created a wall hanging and nominated Save-A-Dog, a charity that has saved thousands of dogs and cats since 1985. I’m happy to share that bidding ended at $1500 raised for Save-A-Dog!

While bidding continued for the project in June I was invited to appear on Channel 10’s flagship morning show, Studio 10, to help spread the word about Created With Care. I painted live on the show and donated the abstract to be auctioned for the project. The painting auctioned for $1000 and proceeds will be donated to Good360, a non-profit who facilitates a way for businesses to donate brand new unsold goods to charities and Australians in need.
You can check out the details along with video highlights from my time on the show via createdwithcare.com.au
It was a great project to be a part of, and the collaborative circumstances of the works resulted in artwork that I would not have created otherwise! Many thanks to Bluethumb and Handkrafted for inviting me to participate.
