ACRYLIC ON CANVAS - BY JESSICA DUNN
CURRENT TRADE VALUE
Jessica Dunn was born in London in 1963 to renowned actors Priscilla Morgan and Clive Dunn. Her early life was surrounded with creativity having grown up in an artistic environment, fuelled by her father, who was also an eager amateur portrait artist.
After her art foundation at Kingston Polytechnic, she continued drawing, painting and printmaking, which then led her to the Algarve in Portugal.
Here she joined a design company and gained a passion for abstract impression of land, sea and sky, inspired by this region.
Jessica has her own studio in Boliqueime and has been exhibiting her work for over 20 years, throughout Portugal, the UK as well as Italy, having been featured in the Wall Street Journal online and Hello magazine.
Our charitable auction aims to raise money for charity, combining the wonders of art with giving back.
The piece available for bid was generously donated by the artist, Jessica Dunn, and all proceeds from its sale will go directly to APEXA and EXISTIR, two commendable charities who do brilliant work to help the community.
We would like to thank all bidders for contributing to this great cause.
