Kerikeri artist Tessa Brown kindly donated two original artworks for our silent auction at the recent NZVA Conference, the proceeds of which have raised over $500 for Healthy Pets - thanks Tessa!
The original artworks of two native birds, a Kingfisher/kōtare, and a wax-eye/tauhou, were very popular, and ultimately found homes at opposite ends of the country. Maureen Forsyth of Auckland was the successful bidder for the Kingfisher/kōtare, while Kim Kelly of Wanaka found success with the wax-eye/tauhou. Both are thrilled to have been able to support Healthy Pets and to receive these beautiful artworks.
We can't thank Tessa enough for her amazing contribution, and would like to congratulate and thank Maureen and Kim for their donations.
