Sixty paintings and prints are set to auctioned online as part of a fundraiser to support the work of North Oxfordshire charities Katharine House Hospice and The Friends of Frank Wise School.

Banbury based artist, Christine O’Sullivan, is organising a series of three online auctions during February and March, each featuring 20 of her works of art.

The final auction will feature a stunning diptych that is 3m wide and 1.8m tall. Christine has been exhibiting across Oxfordshire and beyond since 1996, winning the Artwine prize in Oxfordshire Artweeks in 2009, and her work is in private collections across the UK.

Katharine House provides specialist palliative care for adults with life-limiting conditions across North Oxfordshire, South Warwickshire, and South Northamptonshire. The multi-professional team provides holistic care that considers the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of people with life limiting illnesses, helping them make the most of the time they have left and create quality memories with their loved ones.

Cherida Plumb, the community and events manager for KHH, said: “What a beautiful collection of paintings and prints. And such a lovely way to raise money for Katharine House and Frank Wise School - two charities that rely heavily on donations to continue their work in the local community.
