I am thrilled that I got accepted into this residency, but my financial situation is the only thing that is in my way. You can help make my dream come true by funding my project. In exchange for backing my project you will receive rewards ranging from small sketches to full sized commission paintings.

Risks and challenges
Going to a new country is a scary and exciting experience but also a rewarding one. I have never been outside the United States and I think this is a rare opportunity for me to learn about China. I will probably be in culture shock when I arrive in Shanghai but that is part of the adventure.
I will have two months to adjust into the Pantocrator’s gallery space and create a new body of work. During the final week of the residency I will be showing my work and have a press release sent out.
As an artist I have to take this risk of exploring and experiencing new things to strengthen my ideas about my art. I will surely be questioning my self the entire time, but I think that is a healthy way to make art. I never settle on one idea too long when I start to investigate further into the content of my work. This process is necessary, especially when traveling abroad. Everything I bring to China will be demolished and re-molded into new paintings. I am excited and ready to go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
