24th and 25th of June
We had a very successful celebration of hand made art in honour of the hard work of Medicines Sans Frontieres. A short 2 hours of showing of Jules artworks for the year and sales brought a considerable amount of funds where all profits were donated to a good cause.
Jules would like to thank all those who attended. A special thank you to all the volunteers: Alma Cilurzo for singing; C&C for being extraordinary cashiers; for family and friends for making tea, coffee and cakes and my partner Zoltan for letting me use his residence to showcase the work.

Past Present Future: Pick up sticks is the title of the triptych. The ruins of the old swimming enclosure lies on the floor of the bay as a new feeding area for marine life. However be warned, it does also collect waste from the tides from those who neglect to think about where their rubbish might end up.

It's been a busy few months as I have collected, prepared and made up heaps of recycled gifts to raise money for Medecins sans Frontieres to support them in the control of the Ebola virus.
What an experience. In this workshop, we were all watching the art pieces take on the next element in color. As each participant thought about their subject, they then chose their own colors and applied them carefully over their painting.
It was such a joy watching as they completed the drying process ready for the final seal of protection, the varnish.
