Art Saving Lives

Painted with nail polish on canvas

After a beautiful conversation over the phone, Nicole Condon and I quickly realised that we have a shared passion for the little girls in Cambodia.
Nicole visited Cambodia in August last year, where she had an opportunity to visit with the girls who had been recused from brothels. 

Her response to the horror of lost innocence was to bravely celebrate what life and colour there is for those girls who get an opportunity to live.
Nicole is generously donating a painting for the raffle at 

on Saturday the 21st of April.
Please bring cash with you!

You also have the opportunity to buy her art work at Under a Tree Clothing Exchange
with 50% of the proceeds going straight to the Somaly Mam Foundation.

Seamless is an independently organised event aiming to showcase emerging and sustainable fashion designers and their wares.
 The first of many evenings was last Friday night, the second of March. 
I was honoured to be one of six designers who presented their work and talked about sustainable creations. The event showcased designs from customized eyewear and luxurious underwear ranges to innovative female fashion styles. This evening provided a chance to meet with others, learn, question and feel the impact of new sustanable methods. 
Sponsored by The Rabit Hole/Ideation Cafe the collaborative working space/ coffee shop was vibrant with live music, yummy cupcakes and organic wine.
It was so nice to be with like minded people and celebrate the beauty of sustainablity.
