Artists4.life is her first experience of curating an exhibtion and of fundraising. Her desire to use all of her combined skills to create the event was born from a deep sense of despair about the state of the world today and a strong desire to help others.
She is including her handmade jewelry in the show which she has been making for over 10 years. Necklaces are her favourite pieces as they are steeped in ancient meaning and represent powerful symbols of protection in tribal communities.
