#bringbackourgirls Art Auction...starts today!

Hi everyone, the Art Auction is underway, already with an amazing amount of support!  Thank you to everyone for even just taking a look!  Also a big thank you to Jessica Sporn for organizing are amazing!

Here's a little recap of whats happening today!

Here are some important links:

(which is where the money raised from the auction will go) 

Art Auction: to participate in the auction. 

Here are the pieces I've donated to the auction:

This is a one of a kind mixed media 'she art' piece of artwork.  It is one of my favourite pieces, but couldn't help donate it for this important cause.  The saying "She knew she could count on a Friend" has been paper-pieced onto the canvas.  The girl was created using acrylic paint, gelatos, india inks, vintage papers, doilies & vintage book paper.  The background was created using gouache, acrylic paint, modeling paste, stencils, stamps, india inks, rub-ons, ephemera etc.  Sealed with a low-gloss finish.  Signed on bottom right.

Quote is a gentle reminder that even in the darkest times you know you can always count on a friend.

This one of a kind, 8.5x11 monoprint ready to be framed.  It was created using many many layers of acrylic paint & stencils.  I then added some painterly layers with more acrylic paint directly to the gelli plate to create an abstract image by building layers of brushstrokes and textures.  The sentiment 'She remained true to herself' is a Unity Stamp and reminds me to be confident and strong and to always do whats right in my heart!  You can never go wrong with that!  This piece will be signed before shipping.

Thanks to everyone for your support!
Have a wonderful day!
