Hi, my name is Jane Denman and I live and work on the South Coast of England. I have, just like everyone else, been stuck at home during the pandemic. For me as an artist this has not really meant any significant change but I saw the headlines of how domestic abuse was on the increase during lockdown. I realised that I was very lucky.
I started painting these tiny paintings on wooden postcards a couple of years ago and my pledge is to sell them and donate 60% of the proceeds to Refuge in January. The Tiny Paintings are listed on my website, remember each sale 60% will go to Refuge to help domestic abuse victims.
Throughout January I will have new Tiny Paintings and prints to purchase.
60% of your donation for a print or original painting will go to Refuge the rest is for me to produce, pack and send the artwork to you.
The prints of the Tiny Paintings cost £14 each you can buy on my website and will receive your print in the post
The Original Paintings cost £54 each you can buy on my website and will receive your painting in the post, the painting is an original painting, signed by me
All your sales are gratefully received and will go to help fund the following:
Information From Refuge:
