“Painting with a Purpose” 2011 International Art Exhibition

With a genuine concern for the way we live in the environment that surrrounds us, Charleen donates her artworks regularly to various charities around the world .

Charleen was the events manager  for the first “Paintings I Love” online  Artist community International Art exhibition, working with 4 other event coordinators – fellow Australian Artists – Paula Kerr, Kerry Wembridge, Margaret Fisher and Jules Baldwin. Together they united 40 artists from all continents of the world to host an Art exhibition showcasing over 80+ orginal paintings at the Marion City Council Chambers South Australia in 2011 to raise funds for Little Heroes Foundation a charity that supports children surviving cancer and other serious illness.

The show was opened by the Lord Mayor of Marion City  Felicity-Ann Lewis and the Founding director of the charity Chris McDermott.  British artist  Karen Wroe flew in  from the UK to attend the event and later returned home to begin her project  – Art with a Heart  supporting CAFT – Childrens Adventure Farm Trust in 2012. Our European counterparts would follow the template, and organise an exhibition of their own in Hungary supporting cancer survivors in 2011. A new event is on the horizon for 2014 in the UK – Global Art Fair.
