Artwork from 18-year-old local artist Cameron Edmonds raised an impressive £12,000 at auction at Crest Nicholson’s Christmas Ball with money going to Variety Children’s Charity.
Cameron has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a severe muscle wasting condition which means he is fully reliant on his wheelchair and requires 24-hour attention - but he hasn’t let it hold him back as an artist.
Residing in Kent with his parents, Cameron is inspired by his love for dinosaurs and he regularly sells his work to raise money for Variety Children’s Charity, who support children and families who deal with sickness, disability or disadvantage and help make a difference to their lives.
His 4 pencil images which sold for £3,000 each at the Christmas Ball were on display as part of the décor at Crest Nicholson’s Upper Longcross Show Home prior to auction.
Marcus Evans, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration: “We are delighted to have been able to partner with Cameron to raise much needed funds for Variety. Cam’s artwork added colour to our Upper Longcross Show Home and we look forward to working with him again in the future.”
