This portrait is currently being auctioned through Bluethumb Gallery with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Trischa and her family. Battling Breast cancer for the 3rd time, Trischa has found tremendous success in integrative cancer treatments, most of which are not covered by medical insurance. To participate in the silent auction simply follow this link and click ‘Enquire Now’ to send your highest bid to the Bluethumb Curatorial team by 15 July 2018.

Trischa is a fierce friend who has been in my life for 15 years since we were paired randomly as flat mates in New Zealand. She is now settled with her partner and 2 beautiful children. When Trischa couldn’t explain her Illness to her little kiddo she decided to write a children’s book about a family of fish, which I had the great honour of illustrating. The illustrated children’s eBook is available in German and English. Please reach out to artist@kimleutwyler.com with enquiries about the illustrated book. To make a donation to support Trischa’s treatment and the care of her family, please visit gofundme.com/rjcu83-trischas-medical-expenses

I am happy to share that this auction has surpassed our initial goal of $2000AUD and is currently sitting at $2200AUD. The auction ends on July 15…get amongst it!

Big thank you to Bluethumb for the support and amazing press around this auction!  See their article ‘Silent Auction: Help Kim Help Her Friend’ here.
