Events A Beautiful Evening of Fashion, Art, and Science


What an amazing night on September 16, 2014, at Malene Grotrian’s Full Circle fashion event! Beautiful clothes, and art in support of the scientific research for ovarian cancer.

Here is a clip from go! Vancouver on ovarian cancer research, featuring Donna, a survivor, and her work with Malene Grotrian.

It was an honour to donate my ‘Inside Out’ painting in support of this.

Below are some pictures from the event…

My painting will be part of a silent art auction at Malene Grotrian’s Full Circle Fashion Event on September 16, 2014. Proceeds from the art auction are in support of Ovcare, British Columbia’s ovarian cancer research team.

It’s going to be an amazing night of fashion, art, and fundraising! For more information on the event, and to get tickets, please see Malene’s site at Malene Grotrian Design.
