About

Currently, I am working on a series of work entitled The Disconnect. The works are based on the idea of beauty. Most, if not all, individuals find imperfection and dwell on "Why?" This lack of confidence, in effect, causes a social disconnect. There are those who are born in or evolve into finding themselves in the disconnect. Individuals with physical differences and/or disabilities of any sorts spend a portion of time in the disconnect but, in passing time, discover the very part that has disconnected them from the social standards of beauty is the same factor connecting them to themselves.

But, what am I asking of all of you? I am asking for those who believe in me and my work to contribute to helping me "BUILD THE DISCONNECT." I figure if all my friends were to give $5-$20 dollars a piece, I would be able to afford studio fees, buy the supplies needed, and hire assistants. The body of work will consist of 20 images ranging from 16" x20" to 2' x3', making this body my largest work to date. Furthermore, larger work means more man power which is where the need to hire assistance comes in.

Below I have given a breakdown of what you contributions will go toward:

Studio fee: $350.00 (note: my studio fee is $800. I am only asking for enough to cover the
footage of where i work and i estimate completion of the series to be in mid-spring)
Supplies: $700.00 (note: this includes fresh pigments, watercolor block, single sheets of
watercolor paper, print paper, and framing)
Studio assistance: $8.00 an hour (note: I will need an estimated 15hrs a week as 4 of the 20
images will be an expected 2' x3')
