Portrait raffled to raise funds for Out for Australia

I recently donated the creation of a custom portrait to raise funds for non-profit organisation Out for Australia. Thank you to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket at the Australian LGBTI Awards, there were 5 other amazing prizes and we raised $19,570 by the end of the night! Looking forward to painting the raffle winner who happens to be a champion for diversity and inclusion, Ross Wetherbee. 🌈

🦄 Please note: I am able to make a donation because I work a full time job outside of the arts and am passionate about giving back where I can. Please do not take this post as a go-ahead to take advantage of other emerging artists by asking for donations of artwork in exchange for ‘publicity’ without any form of payment in return. That is exploitation. If you value the work, value the artist behind the work. 💕

Our for Australia:

Our vision is to create an Australia where every LGBTIQ student and aspiring professional is confident to be their authentic self in workplaces which celebrate diversity.
