Raising Funds for the Jodi Lee Foundation
Long time followers of popular Adelaide Adelaide artist and accessories maker Tiff Manuell may already be aware of her partnership with the Jodie Lee Foundation and
Rio Coffee. The well-known Adelaide identity has created a powerful artwork aimed at raising awareness and funds for bowel cancer prevention. Bowel cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Australia for people aged 25-34.
For those unfamiliar, Tiff Manuell pieces are highly sought after. Along with creating wallets, tote bags, clutches and bucket bags, the designer also makes earrings, keyrings and card holders, tees, leggings and even bridal wear. Specialising in one-of-a- kind pieces, she last created a specially designed artwork for the SA Fashion Weekend with her motif wrapped around the official Volvo. The signature artwork also featured on all event signage and patrons who bought a ticket to elevated Rundle Mall Row seating received a limited edition unique South Australian landscape inspired wallet by the designer in their gift bags.
Known for her one of a kind hand painted accessories and her expressionistic art, Manuell has specially created a new piece that has been framed in oak: Trust Your Intuition. the creation is inspired by the elements of nature that meant a lot to Jodi Lee during her life. Measuring 1420mm x 1030mm x 55mm, the striking visual is the grand prize in a raffle organised by the Jodi Lee Foundation, with every dollar raised going to bowel cancer prevention.
“I hoped to be able to convey the true community spirit that it takes to build … awareness for bowel cancer and its early detection….I always like to think my work can inspire happiness.”– Tiff Manuel
Tiff Manuell’s artwork is also being featured on disposable cups distributed by South Australian owned and run Rio Coffee and other participating cafes, further spreading the message of bowel cancer awareness. Describing her piece as a positive creation, Manuell says that she hopes it will “evoke conversation and emotion.”
The raffle will be drawn on June 30 2023, so there is still plenty of time to get involved! To support the cause, you can purchase the $25 raffle tickets here.
