Little Paper Slipper invited nine exceptional artists – Gavin Turk, Molly Parkin, Vanja Karas, Julia Maddison, John Claridge, Jess De Wahl, Fiona Dealey, Lauren Baker and Marie-Louise Jones – to create specially commissioned little paper shoe artworks to be sold at their charity fundraiser auction at Vout-O-Reenees on 9th June 2016. Really thrilled and honoured to be one of the commissioned artists for this unique charity that ‘Gives a creative voice to women affected by domestic abuse, and makes that voice heard’.

Little Paper Slipper installation ‘Like a Butterfly to a Flame‘ by Vanja Karas, was created based around the notion of being irresistibly and dangerously attracted to something or someone and being tempted by something that would lead to ones downfall. “Thus hath the candle singed the moth.” Shakespeare The Merchant of Venice, 1596:
