At the CAUK Forum 2017, we will be holding an Art Auction with paintings by Carolyn Nicholls.
Without further ado, the paintings and auction in her own words;
I can’t run. I don’t fancy jumping out of a plane and cycling makes me dizzy. But I can paint. Painting was my lifeline after my 3rd bleed and consequent brain surgery. My cavernoma was on my speech and language centre (left occipital- just above your ear!) and after my surgery I could hardly read, so I put my nascent novel on hold and sketched, drew and painted to help my somewhat battered brain to heal.
Like many of you, I got so much wonderful help, information and support from the Cavernoma Alliance UK that I wanted to give something back. So I painted four works that could be turned into art cards to raise funds. You will be able to buy them for £2.50 each at local Cavernoma Alliance events and at the York forum in June. All the profit goes to further the work. I have also donated the original paintings to be auctioned to raise more funds and you can put in a silent bid online below. You can own one of these painting to hang on your very own wall or you can form a small group to bid and donate the painting to brighten a venue dear to your heart, perhaps a hospital or doctors surgery.
Please bid generously, bidding is open to friends, family and anyone who is good for the money! Bidding will be via email up until the LIVE auction at the CAUK 2017 forum and closed on that day with the winner being notified if not in the room. If you are not at the forum the painting will be well wrapped and can be sent to you by a courier.
