TVNZ The Apprentice

May 11th saw the final episode of NZ The Apprentice. The contestants were challenged to host a charity auction to raise money for Cure Kids.

I was contacted by one of the contestants and asked if I would donate a painting for this worthy cause.

Charities such as Cure Kids do a wonderful job, and I was pleased that my painting raised $2000.

As a result, a grand total of $40,000 was donated to Cure Kids.

Worthy Causes

I was asked last month if i would donate work to the 'Adopt an Artwork' exhibition at The Depot in Devonport raising money for the 'Lonely Miaow' cat rescue charity. This print of 'Le Chat' was successfully auctioned there.

'Le Chat'
My husband & I adopted a cat 12 years ago from the UK Cat Protection League before locating to New Zealand in 2000, and not only did she fly over with us, she is still doing well and loves her life down under!


We also adopted a cat last year, called Misty. She is more like a cheeky dog than a fussy mog and her taste in food leaves a lot to be desired!!
