About Daisy Watt: Discovering new talent is always an exciting experience for any art lover and one gallery owner from Bawtry has supported a hugely talented little girl from Misson, Doncaster raise almost £20,000 for a local fundraising ball.
Ruth Stone, proprietor of Limited 2 Art, Torworth, Retford played her part in raising the profile of Daisy Watts’ stunning picture by framing the piece, displaying it in the gallery and producing 100 limited edition prints, funded by Limited 2 Art, which all sold at £100 each with 100% of the money raised donated to the chosen charities of the Equinox Ball, a fundraising ball which raises funds jointly for Cancer Research UK and Doncaster based charity Firefly.
“It has been a true delight to support Daisy Watt exceed her dream of raising enough money to buy a wheel for the next Firefly vehicle,” said Ruth. “In reality, she has raised almost enough to buy the whole van which is an amazing achievement for a 7-year-old girl, but which recognises the beauty of her art and her incredible talent.”
Daisy’s abstract painting depicts forget-me-nots for those people who have lost their fight against cancer and is balanced with bright flowers for those that survive. And, due to the overwhelming demand for the image, Ruth is now producing a number of limited edition canvas prints to allow more people to be able to enjoy Daisy’s painting. November 2016
