GEEWIZZ Charity, Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Legacy Auction

I have been so excited to share this incredible charity auction with everyone!

Gina Long MBE, the Founder of GeeWizz Charity, is working closely with Ed Sheeran’s parents, John and Imogen, on the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Legacy Auction.

I will be completing a one of a kind, personalised oil painting commission on my handmade canvases for the highest bidder, with all the money raised going to the GeeWizz charity.

GeeWizz support’s children and young adults in Suffolk and Norfolk, who sadly suffer from life-threatening conditions, a disability or cancer. They fund life-changing bespoke, very specialist, equipment for children, and young adults, along with supporting their families. More recently they have funded purchasing specialist or sensory equipment for SEN departments at schools and colleges throughout the community. GeeWizz  literally helps change many lives every day.

Some of the items already pledged include highly personal and collectable memorabilia from Ed Sheeran and his family. With more than 200 incredible prizes, the highlights including Ed’s handwritten lyrics to his global hit “Perfect”; original artworks by contemporary artists and sculptors; sports memorabilia; unique hospitality and entertainment opportunities; and a self-contained garden office building.

Never before has there been more need for us to deliver our Legacy Auction to support children and young people with high dependency disabilities progressive or incurable illnesses.

If you are considering getting a commissioned painting done of your loved ones or pet then please take a look at some examples at the bottom of the page. I also thought of some tips for those of you thinking of getting commissions done.

One thing that is useful to think about is your photo, we would need to consider the composition that you would like, and ensure that the photo quality is really high, preferably using a digital camera. It is really difficult to capture the sparkling, loving character of the subject if you can’t see the colour of the eyes, or where the highlights are, so it is important to have lots of detail in the photo for me to work from.

Another top tip is to be eye level with your subject when you take the photo, this avoids awkward angles and makes your painting look great in any position on your wall.

The ideal place to take your picture would be outside in natural light, or near a window. There is no better place for a photoshoot than outside!

I am happy to come out to you to take the picture if you are fairly local to me. I hope this has been helpful to anyone hoping to get a commission done
