Emma Blyth Auction

Mandurah local and Western Australian artist, Emma Blyth, has been involved with Crab Fest since it's inception.

Emma loves to create artwork to showcase our beautiful city, the fun and vibrant Crab Fest and of course the Blue Manna Crab.

Her fun and simplistic style of art stems from her love of exploring the great outdoors. The Mandurah lifestyle inspires her to utilise large brush strokes and vibrant colours to portray a range of scenes.

Watch as Emma's art comes to life as she paints live at Crab Fest before your very eyes!

Saturday: 12pm and 3pm
Sunday: 11am

Want to get your hands on this original piece?

Emma will be live painting this year's auction art piece. Don't miss your chance to own an original Emma Blyth artwork, with all proceeds going to The Foster Share Shed Inc.

Emma is proud that from auctioning her Crab Fest original artworks over the years she has raised over $25,000 for various charities including Telethon, Bushfire appeals and local schools, and hope to continue that this year with the auction of an original piece.
