Nafisa Naomi has won the Packing Room prize, the prelude to the Archibald awards, for her incredible portrait of Glenn A. Baker, rock music guru! Read more here. This is fantastic news, not only as a huge accolade to a very accomplished artist but also as a kind of karmic return to someone who does so much work for charity. Congratulations Nafisa!
Nafisa’s elephant artworks, which she is donating the proceeds of to elephant conservation in India, can be purchased at www.animalworks.com.au , the website of our conservation organisation, Animal Works. You can meet Nafisa and pick up one of her artworks in Sydney being auctioned at the Firehouse Hotel next Saturday night, Earth Hour (27 March), at the Elephant Nature Foundation of Australia’s first fund raising dinner.
