Jamie Harnwell-s sojourn into the artistic realm has paid handsome dividends for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation with his painting going under the hammer for $700 at the CelebriArt auction.

The tough Perth Glory defender was chuffed that his painting attracted a number of admirers at the exclusive CelebriArt event held in King Street on Friday, 5 July and was even happier when it raised $700 for the PMH Foundation.

Harnwell was one of a select number of Perth celebrities and local personalities who, in collaboration with local artists, created one-of-a-kind artworks to raise funds for charity.

While the final design was all his own handy work, Harnwell said he couldn-t have done it without the wonderful support of artistic mentor Amelia who spent hours with the Glory star to ensure a great final product.

“I-m really happy that my painting was able to help contribute to a great cause and just as happy that there were some bidders for it,” Harnwell said after the event.

“I don-t know what I would have done if it was just left hanging on the wall and no one wanted it,” he joked.
