In 2009, Alexandra Trotsenko, a Russian artist living in Ireland, had her fingers cut off. This happened during the course of a vicious knife attack in her own home. The attacker has since been jailed for 16 years, but without expensive surgery, Alexandra will not draw again.
Many artists in the Irish community have come together to donate our work to a special charity auction, hoping to pay for the prosthesis which may help Alexandra resume her career. With the permission of my UK/US publishers Orbit, I will be donating my personal copy of the limited edition Moorehawke prints that Orbit commissioned last year. The artwork will be signed and framed and up for bids with all the other donated art at Adams Auction house in Blackrock on November 27th 2011.
Please support this great cause and donate to Alexandra or bid at the auction if you can. Contact Adams Auction house for details of the auction or donate to
