Watercolours For Ukraine

As an artist I am used to seeing and enjoying beauty in the world. I capture it regularly in my art. I also run an online art school “Watercolour Inspiration” where incredible members inspire and encourage each other. We are united in our passion for watercolour but right now our hearts are heavy. Because we feel so deeply for Ukraine. Each day we wake to hear more heartbreaking news. We are seeing sights we should not be seeing. Millions of Ukrainians are fleeing their homes due to a war they did not ask for. We are seeing senseless destruction of civilian buildings, hospitals, care homes and even an art school. Atrocities endlessly continue. In one moving image we witnessed one hundred empty prams in Kviv , representing over one hundred babies killed and this number grows.
Ukrainians need our support.
I cannot turn away from the unfolding horror. None of us should.
I’m inviting artists to join me in my goal to raise funds for Ukraine. Please, no matter how small your donation is, it will be greatly appreciated.
Everyone can help.
I am inviting artists to sell art and donate here.
I have free tutorials you can watch in my online art school and you are welcome to donate here for enjoying them.
Over the years I have given so much in my art journey. But I need help now.
I’ve been told reaching my target will be impossible.
I believe in the impossible.
Please help me.
I know together we can make a difference.
We have to.
We have to show the beauty in this world by acts of kindness, love and support because it has never been needed more.

Every brushstroke counts. Every kind act counts Every heart counts

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of Disasters Emergency Committee and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about Disasters Emergency Committee: The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) - which in major crises brings together 14 leading UK aid charities to raise money to help save lives and rebuild shattered communities - is appealing for funds. The eight-year conflict in Ukraine has dramatically escalated. Heavy fighting, shelling and air strikes across Ukraine have had devastating consequences for the population with people forced to flee their homes to escape the violence. Please donate to help those affected.
