Fundraising for Shibas

Last year I was able to donate a portrait slot for auction in aid of Japanese Shiba Inu Rescue in the UK, and the Welsh Air Ambulance. The auction took place recently and I'm happy to say my work managed to raise £300 towards an overall total of £1500! The winning bidder for the portrait was Nick White, and I recently completed his prize portrait featuring the handsome "Solo" the Shiba.
