Fundraise Your Way

Art sale

Alex Coppock-Bunce is selling her beautiful artwork in aid of Charlie Gourley’s vital ovarian cancer research.

Alex Coppock-Bunce was diagnosed with stage 3 low grade serous ovarian cancer (LGSOC) in October 2018. LGSOC is a rare cancer that has only been recognised as a separate entity in the last 15 years.

It was a huge shock and terribly frightening to learn this was a chemo resistant cancer. After the surgery there was nothing else medical team could offer, other than six months of chemo and hormone blocking drugs.

Alex has fundraised for Professor Charlie Gourley and his team at Nicola Murray Center for Ovarian Cancer Research, based at the University of Edinburgh for a number of years. The team provide national leadership on low grade serous ovarian cancer clinical trials. They are also undertaking vital laboratory research to inform the next generation of low grade serous ovarian cancer clinical trials.

Alex has taken part in Scotland’s Virtual Kiltwalk and hosted various online raffles. Her current fundraising project is selling her beautiful artwork.

 

Atlantis I

It’s the print of a mixed media piece from a series of two inspired by music alone. After Alex felt it was completed it reminded her of treasure and  ruins beneath the sea. Most of her work is inspired by nature and this felt slightly different as though there were manmade elements mixed with natural shells .

Like Atlantis I it’s the print of a mixed media piece from a series of two inspired by music alone. After she felt it was completed it reminded her of treasure and ruins beneath the sea.

Godolphin Looking North

It's the print of a mixed media piece from a series of three, inspired by Alex's sister research into their family tree. She had found connections to the Godolphins so Alex visited the house (now National Trust) and surrounding area and these are views from standing on Godolphin Hill.

St Nectan's Keive

St Nectan’s Kieve is a piece in a series of ancient sacred sites Alex painted. It’s in Cornwall near Boscastle and Tintagel . It’s in a beautiful leafy glen you climb down to and is a natural hole in the rock big enough for a man to stand in made by the waterfall.

Alex's Art work
Knockers and Piskies

It’s the print of a collage inspired by the corner of Carbis Bay where the mineral rich cliffs meet the sea. You can see the entrance to mineshaft behind the waterfall. There are strange hanging plants tumbling over the top. Sadly this beach has been concreted over by the hotel who own it now so I imagine the Knockers and Piskies (the faery folk who dwell there) are less than pleased.

Madron Well

Madron Well is a piece in a series of ancient sacred sites Alex painted. It’s in the West Penwith district of Cornwall near Penzance . People consider it a healing well that once was the water source for the town.
