Lot 344 - Joy Parker - Bullock
I am an eclectic artist using a variety of mediums and methods for personal expression, exhibition and commission. My personal work is often inspired by travel and sometimes created in collaboration with my husband, writer Robert Leach. I also work on community art projects, often using the medium of mosaic.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I love to draw. These four pieces here are based on sketches made when travelling in India. I have then built them up in layers of oil colour from my memory and imagination.
You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
