Global Abstract Artist, Zahrina Robertson is proudly supporting mums and newborn babies at Westmead Hospital.
Ms Robertson kindly donated $550 to Women’s and Newborn Health at Westmead Hospital for a new foetal doppler machine, enabling midwives and doctors to listen to an unborn baby’s heartbeat during pregnancy and labour.
Ms Robertson raised the funds at her highly successful charity pop-up gallery launch, Art On Purpose last September at Bella Vista. The glamorous event was sponsored by Rydges Norwest Sydney and was supported by Mulpha Norwest, which provided exhibition space for 30 artworks.
Ms Robertson said: “I’m so proud and excited to have raised much needed funds via my Zahrina Gallery Australian art debut launch and opening”. She added, “Utilising my vision for #artonpurpose to help and support the nurses, mums and newborns to have access to state of the art equipment through the vital message and power of art and community was a very proud moment, as my late father contributed a lot to Westmead Hospital looking after many patients as a nurse”.
Alison Whittaker, Fundraising and Relationships Manager at Westmead Hospital Foundation said: “We are grateful to members of our community like Zahrina who help the Foundation provide the very latest in equipment to the staff and patients at Westmead Hospital.”
Zahrina was an emerging Australian artist when she was discovered in New York in 2019, and now International Art Collectors and Corporates collect her artworks. Hollywood stars Brooke Shields and Tony Robbins have commissioned her artwork.
