Exhibition of envelopes on which artists have created visual responses to the title ‘A Letter in Mind: The Art of a Journey’ for The National Brain Appeal, the charity dedicated to raising vital funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London.
I am pleased to have contributed a piece to this great cause: you can purchase work at the exhibition or view and purchase through the online gallery.
Over 200 works are on show with exhibitors including Grayson Perry, Billy Childish, painters Gill Rocca and Natasha Kidd, Harry Pye, and artist and magazine editor, Horace Panter.
All the envelope artworks will be identically priced at £80 and sold anonymously at the exhibition in aid of The National Brain Appeal. The artist’s name and biography be revealed at the end of the exhibition.
The National Brain Appeal raises money for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London − it’s the UK’s leading centre of excellence for treating diseases of the brain, spine and the nervous system − such as brain tumours, epilepsy, stroke, dementia, Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease.
The price of each work is £80 and all proceeds will go directly to The National Brain Appeal. The name of the artists will only be available once an artwork has been bought or once the exhibition closes.
I cannot reveal which work is mine, but you can view and buy artwork through The National Brain Appeal website.
Please note, there is a private view at the gallery@oxo on 7 October (invitation only) so some of the artworks may already have been sold.

Donations help them to improve the lives of the 1 in 6 people who are affected by a neurological disorder in the UK.
I'm pleased to finally be able to reveal the work that I created for the 'A Letter in Mind' exhibition- which was created on a standard window envelope- and sold before the opening at the charity private view! The ‘A Letter in Mind’ exhibition held at the gallery@oxo earlier this month has been a great success for The National Brain Appeal – with over 1000 visitors during the week, 136 works sold and more than £10,000 raised. The National Brain Appeal have now updated the A Place for Creation web page to show which artworks have sold and which are still available. Mine is number 055! There are still more works for sale, so you can still support this great cause! The National Brain Appeal is the charity dedicated to raising much needed funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square London. The National is one of the world’s leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with a wide range of neurological disorders and neuromuscular conditions including multiple sclerosis symptoms (MS), brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, Prion disease, and head injury. Please help to improve their outcomes.
I’ve created a piece which will be auctioned off to help raise funds for this brilliant charity. All works in ‘A Letter in Mind’ (including one by Grayson Perry) are being exhibited anonymously and sold for £80- Only when the exhibition ends will the artist’s name be revealed.
Following the exhibition and auction, I will be able to post the image of my final work… until then, watch this space, and good luck with your purchases!
