My name is Shae. I am a visual artist, among other things, and I need your help funding canvas and supplies to produce new work.
The goal of this project is to take the collage work I've produced over the past year plus and evolve it to the next logical step as I see it. For me, that next step means transforming collage, and the quirks mostly specific to collage, into larger canvas works. But I need your help.
With your generous assistance I can fund enough supplies (pens, paint, canvas, et cetera) to create the next wave of work and put on a show of my own (hopefully by the end of summer). You would be directly contributing to my evolution as an artist. Any and all excess funds will be used for even more supplies. You fund art by buying art. Doesn't that sound really nice?
Before I finish up, let me tell you a bit about the rewards. Absolutely everything offered as a reward will be an original work or a print/copy of an original. If the reward calls for an original sketch or collage that means that I personally drew a picture or pieced together a collage with scissors and glue. The collage booklets are sixteen pages (front cover and back included) measured at approximately 5.75"x8.25" per page with 15 full-color pages of collage (back cover with something small plus contact information). Each is original and distinct.
I want to thank you for your time. Please check out my blog for many samples of what I've been up to lately (look below for examples on this page as well):
Here is the sole example of collage-to-canvas that I have produced thus far:
And this is a mix of collages, sketches, and canvas works:
