Letter to Charleen Morris … to whom it may concern …

Our group of 15 – 20 artists who meet weekly to paint, has been pleased to count Charleen as a tutor and supporting friend.

Charleen ran a series of “abstract art workshops” with us over two months in March – April 2012. We all learned a lot, extended our skills and horizons and most of all had a lot of fun.

Charleen approached these sessions in a very professional manner, being extremely well prepared with materials and hand-outs; she was prompt and efficient. In short we were all impressed by her professionalism, her care for each member, and we felt she went beyond the call of duty. By the end of our sessions we felt pleased to call her our friend, someone we could call on anytime. A number of our group have stayed in contact with her and we have followed her artistic progress. We look forward to working together again in 2013.

Charleen fitted in very well and supported this small community group.

ROSIES (Friends on the Streets) GOLD COAST BRANCH

ROSIES is an organisation that supports the Homeless. I was invited by a student at Ashmore TAFE College to assist in her Event Fundraiser  for ROSIES ( part of her course assessment) to add interest to the event and create a painting to be auctioned off towards fund raising.  I volunteered my services and all materials.My concept was to create a community collaborative WORD painting where all the attending guests were asked to help create the painting by writing their personal message of what HOME meant to them. Wendy the manager of Gold Coast Branch Rosies’ asked that rather than auction the painting could they have the painting and hang it in their lunchroom where they provide meals for the homeless – to demonstrate that others in the community care about their position. It still hangs in their Dining room today.

PAINTING with a PURPOSE International Art Exhibition supporting Little Heroes Foundation – Children surviving cancer and other serious illness. Marion City Council Adelaide SA.

I was the Event Manager for this Exhibition, with the assistance of 5 other Australian artists from around Australia. Together we set up this International exhibition which drew 40 artists from 35 countries around the world to donate 80 paintings to raise funds for Little Heroes Foundation. This was a very involved event successfully pulled together in limited time, bringing over 20 volunteers from Adelaide ( as the events team were from other states except for 1 artist). Volunteers involved community members, International students, musicians, and also sponsorship from wineries, bakeries, arts suppliers, health companies, coffee suppliers , the city mayor and council of Marion City. All artists that contributed were from an online artists website. One artist flew from UK with her daughter to attend. 12 arrived from all over Australia. The evening was a success, the show went on for a week, all remaining properties became the property of the charity being supported for their future fundraising.

Collaborative  Mural created in Portugal August 2018 as a project to inspire and elevate my 11year old nieces art abilities and exploration into using spray cans safely.  I suggested the theme be a rooftop garden, so we both had to come up with a design and amalgamte the final 2. The outcome was a blend of her original pencil sketch and my digital mock up.
