various Christchurch earthquake Fundraisers London, United Kingdom
I created a number of fancy dress costumes for the Waitangi Pub Crawl, and rather than have 50 costumes, I painted NZ icons onto canvases as I was homesick. In 2011 the CHCH Earthquakes struck and I wanted to help. I reached out to the expat NZ Community and found a number of Kiwis wanting to do the same. Since then, I have donated a number of New Zealand themed artworks for various NZ causes mainly the NZ Society, New Zealand Business Women's network, Christchurch Fundraisers etc. Kiwis help kiwis overseas and it's wonderful community to be a part of in London, that home doesn't feel so far away with all the amazing kiwis in London.
