Charity secret postcard auction
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Emma Russell | Share link:

I was pleased to be invited to take part in the Combat Stress secret postcard auction and created two new pieces for the show. It was an exciting excuse to do some purely analogue drawing, working in ink and acrylic. I revisited some of my favourite subjects – the oddly framed or faintly unsettling portrait, and birds of the British isles. The postcard auction raised over £41,000 for the charity, which supports armed services veterans mental health needs through numerous avenues including art therapy.
