House of Hope: An Eating Disorder Art Exhibition and Fundraiser
Posted Jul 21 2011 4:41pm
Last year I received a lovely email from a young woman called Em who told me she loved Beautiful You and would I mind if she posted some of her photography on the Beautiful You Facebook page. Little did I know what an amazing talent and amazing person I was about to uncover when I opened Em’s photo’s. They were brilliant, moving, poignant and far, far too good to be put on a Facebook page without much greater acknowledgement. Since that day I have now met Em a number of times and became inspired to support and mentor her to get her brilliant photography seen by as many people as possible. She is as beautiful as her art is and I’m thrilled that she is going to be having her very first exhibition in Melbourne on September 6th which is also going to be a fundraiser for The Butterfly Foundation. Read on for an interview with Em, a sneak peek at her work and details of the wonderful interactive House of Hope exhibition that I hope to see you all at.
