A LEAP of faith can mean many things to many people.

But for local artist Jhana David Bowen, it's an "artistic adventure that entails living one's dreams, regardless of fear and obstacles."

Mr Bowen is holding a fundraiser for the Integral Arts Mentoring Project at Kartel Espresso Bar in Cabarita Beach starting this Friday April 20 at 6pm.

"My exhibition, Leap of Faith revolves entirely around celebrating life purpose," he said.

"Artworks in the exhibition carry visually symbolic images.

"Depicting graceful feminine forms and figures flying amidst stars in atmospheric, colourful sky scapes, I feel my artworks rich with layers of paint give a luminous depth to descriptions of life."

Mr Bowen will be accompanied with a live performance by musician Richard Bell together with an undisclosed spoken word and poetry artist to mysteriously appear on the evening.

All proceeds from the event will fund the Mentoring Project initiated by Integral Arts.

"The project delivers much needed art mentoring to people living with a variety of disabilities within the community," Mr Bowen said.

Integral Arts' vision is to create a non-exclusive and culturally alive community in the Tweed Coast region without discriminating against those living with disabilities.

"The fundraiser welcomes the community in our inherent diversity," Mr Bowen said.

"It aims to provide through the sale of artworks direct support to those living with disabilities to be creative in an inclusive and culturally alive region of the Northern Rivers."

For further information on the event you can contact Jhana Bowen directly on 0418191190
