Art Auction for Roma in Dunfermline

Artists such as James Howden and Michael Havelin have donated artworks for a charity auction in Dunfermline, Fife on Friday 21 September.  Michael Kirkham, an Edinburgh-based artist whose client list includes The New York Times and The Washington Post has provided three illustrations (pictured). Funds are being raised to help two-year old Roma Dellal, who has Germ Cell Cancer, travel from Edinburgh to the US for treatment.

The woman behind the auction is Dunfermline-based Natasha Kemp whose own story is an encouraging one. At the age of 30, Kemp who has a 14 year old and a 5 year old starting primary school, is about to take up a second year degree place at Edinburgh College of Art having completed an HND at Carnegie and Telford Colleges. She used facebook to help  generate donations from artists and  has organised the printing of a paper catalogue as well as an online  version. If you can’t make it to the auction at Create At Cloud in Dunfermline you can also bid online.
