ART FOR EPILEPSY
4 April 2017 / Exhibitions . New Artwork
Art for Epilepsy 2017 had over 180 artworks from over 160 artists from across Australia up for auction!
Each art piece had to contain the colour/shade purple, the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy.
The auction opened online on Valentine’s Day (14th February), St. Valentine was the patron saint of epilepsy, and closes out on Purple Day (26th March) at 9pm AEDT. Almost $140,000 worth of art has been donated to raise funds and awareness for epilepsy!
I had 3 pieces offered for the Auction and all 3 pieces found a bidder and were sold, donating a total of $385 for this good cause.

Your painting is now in my home! I love it! The texture of the rocks is so interesting and Jacarandas I love. I am deciding which wall will display it to its best advantage. Thank you so much. I have looked through your site and love the work you do.
Stephanie, who was the highest bidder for my painting Hydrangeas, sent me the following email:
Just to let you know the painting arrived yesterday!
It is beautiful, I absolutely love it! And the frame is perfect too.
Thank you so much. I will send you a photo once it is hung.
Many thanks again,
