Six pieces of work by leading Northern Ireland artists are up for grabs as part of the BBC Children In Need appeal.

Five paintings and one sculpture are featured in the online auction.

The items available to bidders are: Irish Thoroughbred by Nicola Russell; Cow by Paul Bell; Two Faces by Jack Packenham; Portrait of CS Lewis as a child created by Ross Wilson; Abstract by Ben Allen, and Sculpture of a Baby by Sheila Wallis.

The artwork is now available for auction on the charity's official auction site on eBay until Sunday, 21 November, which can be accessed here.

This year's BBC Children in Need Appeal is on Friday and is live on BBC One Northern Ireland and BBC Radio Ulster from 1900 GMT.
