Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I use colors as a means of expression. I am looking for contrasts by combining complementary colors in my paintings to create a powerful effect and to encourage women's natural beauty. I portray myself at different times and with fairy facial features; I have the same big eyes and thick eyebrows as my girls on the canvas. But they look way more confident and have solid body shapes, exactly how I frankly wish to be.
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.

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.
