About the Artist

A Sydney based artist and maker, I am interested in colour, texture and how I can create both beautiful works of art but also have them serve as functional pieces like jewellery, accessories and homewares. For 6 years I owned and operated a jewellery label called Ena & Albert, closing the doors in 2017. You can find me as @enaandalbert on Instagram.

About the artwork

Therese Lyons' art dog

The pattern painted on my Guide Dogs coin collection dog, Carmen, was inspired by the shapes and colours I used in the necklaces I created. Naturally, I have dressed her in a custom-made rainbow E&A necklace. Carmen is affectionately named after Ena Carmen who inspired my love of art and making early on in life. I wanted to get involved because it seemed like such a fun project to be a part of and to help raise money for such a worthy cause was just icing on top.

THIS ART DOG HAD BEEN SOLD AT THE ONLINE AUCTION.
