Artists donate skills to help families coping with cancer

PAULA Miller knows about coping with cancer ? her daughter, mother-in-law and best friend have all suffered the disease.

Her 30-year-old daughter Naomi survived after being diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, but her mother-in-law Joyce died from cancer three years ago, and best friend Kay Whelan of Mullumbimby died of cancer last month.

The tragedies have inspired Paula to use her artistic talents to help families coping with cancer.

Paula is one of seven talented Tweed women, all touched by cancer, who will host an art, craft and homewares exhibition at Eungella to raise funds for cancer-support groups this weekend.

Paula's home ? Oxley House at 126 Tyalgum Road, Eungella ? will be opened to the public for the exhibition called Adornments, to run from 10am to 4pm today and tomorrow.

As well as the women's own paintings and other works, Paula's house is choc-a-bloc with art and craft for sale, including exotic American Indian, Uzbeki, Kashmiri and Afghani craftwork, clothes, antiques, homewares, jewellery, furniture, embroidery, shawls, cushions, scarves and hats.

For the $5 entry fee, patrons get the chance to win a big raffle prize - more than $1000 worth of art, with proceeds to be given to the Tweed Brunswick Breast Cancer Support Group and Tweed Palliative Care.

For further information call Paula on (02) 6672 3937.
