I donated this original award winning painting to Tikokino Primary School in Central Hawkes Bay, for their 2017 Charity Auction, on Dec 2nd which sold for $2,000. The event was a huge win for this small country school, raising $10,157 for the resurfacing of the sports ground.
I am stoked that my artwork Solace was included in the Impressions National Art Awards Exhibition and received the win for the inaugural Best Pastel Painting. Double stoked and very thankyou to the kind voters that it also received the NBS Peoples Choice Prize.
