Twitter Art Exhibit is a world wide collective of artists raising money for various charities led by Swedish artist David Sandum – Kathryn Kaiser
I was extremely honoured that my postcard entitled “Enshrined” was chosen to grace the poster for the Twitter Art Exhibit in Moss, Norway in 2015. Six hundred twenty artists from forty countries participated in 2015, in this wonderful humanitarian event that helps a different charity each year.
Twitter Art Exhibit has allowed over 1000 artists across the globe to raise over $64,000US for various charities world wide since it’s inception.

The 2015 recipient was an organization called Home Start in Moss, Norway.
