A promising young artist in her own right, Akilah Hammond remembers long evenings at the Volcano cafe with her grandad Bill, while he sketched and scribbled.

The Peninsula Art Auction is excited to be auctioning “Bone Eagle C” by Bill Hammond right next to his granddaughter’s work.

These are just two of many amazing artworks featuring in the Peninsula Art Auction this year.
