Emma Morrissey BA – Emma is a business owner from Southampton & is very pleased to debut her latest collection of original paintings & prints, the collection is a direct representatin of her struggles with Anxiety over the years, with each piece demonstrating the various stages that her Anxiety would take.
“These pieces are my representation of what each stage of one of my Pnic Attacks looks like if it was to have an image linked to it, the colours used, the technique & the style of the work is all relevant to the subject & has been a very personal creative journey in creating these pieces, I hope that these pieces will give others who are struggling, a positive outlook on what can be created out of a difficult situation” Emma Morrissey 2017′
Emma has chosen Mental Health charity ‘MIND’ she will be giving a percentage of any sales to Solent Mind.
David Vane is better known as founder/director of SBGN, a company that has helped over 200 people to start their businesses. David says that he has not considered himself an artist but new techniques and technology have enabled him to express his view of the environment in different ways. David was moved to contact The Alzheimer’s Society after hearing several programmes on the radio about the struggles of carers and people who have dementia and he wanted to find a practical way to support research.
Please come along & show your support for local Artists & remember, any Art sles on the day will be helping to raise funds for charity.
