I am an Adelaide based artist, and I’m raising money for Mesothelioma research using my art. Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos and at present, there is no cure. Sadly, Australia has one of the highest rates of Mesothelioma per capita in the world! I lost my wonderful Dad to this terrible disease in April 2011.
In memory of my father, Murray Shean, I will be raising money by creating 100 portraits in 100 days, beginning on January 1st, 2021. Every dollar raised will help fund research at The National Centre for Asbestos Related Diseases. All donations, no matter the amount will be greatly appreciated. The first 100 donations of $50 will be able to choose the subject for one of the portraits, and also keep that portrait for themselves.
***PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NOW NO COMMISSION SPOTS LEFT. ALL DONATIONS MADE FROM THIS POINT ONWARD WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR A PORTRAIT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT***
The maximum portrait size will be 8x10inch, with square portraits being 8x8 inch.
To join in, all you need to do is
1. Make a donation 😍
2. If you would like a portrait, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your reference photos, donation receipt and postal address (free postage throughout Australia).
3. Let me know if you want a drawing or a painting.
4. Wait for your portrait to arrive in the post.
