FINE art paint­ings of birds by an award- win­ning Kala­munda artist will high­light the work of two lesser­known char­i­ties.

Art­work do­nated by Sally Ed­monds will raise funds for Work­ing Spirit, which helps vet­er­ans find civil­ian jobs, and Tiny Sparks, a sup­port for fam­i­lies of pre­ma­ture ba­bies.

The artist said she dis­cov­ered paint­ing be­came an out­let of self- ex­pres­sion af­ter she ex­pe­ri­enced se­vere de­pres­sion.

“I al­most see my life as hav­ing two halves – be­fore the de­pres­sion and af­ter it,” she said.

“I love shar­ing my work; I put a lit­tle piece of my­self out there with ev­ery art­work.”

WA Gov­er­nor Kim Bea­z­ley will open the Army Art ex­hi­bi­tion on Au­gust 24 at Leeuwin Bar­racks in East Fre­man­tle.

The art­work will be on show un­til Au­gust 26.

Tick­ets for the open­ing night are avail­able via www. stick­yt­ick­ets. com. au/ 70463/ army_ art_ 2018__ tran sition. aspx.
