Sketch for Survival 2020
Deb was really excited to have her artwork "Koala's in Focus - Bushfire Survivor" included into the Invitational core collection for SFS 2020.
All artworks in the core collection are donated by professional and award winning artists on an invitational basis.
The SFS Invitational collection was displayed through a virtual gallery this year due to COVID restrictions.
All artworks were sold in aid of Explorers Against Extinction wildlife conservation projects.
Deb is so happy to confirm this piece sold for £460 (~$840 AUD).

Deb was really pleased and excited to have been selected in the Top 100 entries globally for the 2019 “Sketch for Survival Introducing” with her charcoal drawing “In Protective Custody”.
Deb’s donated artwork toured throughout the UK with works from other professional, celebrity and amateur artists.
We are pleased to advise it sold in February, raising funds for “Explorers against Extinction” who support numerous conservation projects throughout the world.
Focus for Survival 2020
Deb is excited to have 2 images judged in the top 26 finalists for the Focus for Survival Introducing Photographer of the Year award. Both images will be displayed in a special digital exhibit at gallery@oxo in the UK this November. These images will be sold to fund projects through Explorers Against Extinction.
Supporting Southern Koala Rescue
After the devastating bushfires in the Australian summer of 2019/20, Deb campaigned to raise funds to support SKR and Adelaide Koala Hospital through the sale of the "Branch Manager" original pastel artwork plus 9 giclee prints. 100% of sale proceeds were donated to these local wildlife rescue services.
5 limited edition prints are still available for sale.
