About this project
With “Moonlight Sonata” by composer Ludwig Van Beethoven as the exception, I comprised the entire video ^above^ with my wood art, acrylic & oil paintings, clay sculptures, digital art, photo art & video editing.
Above the video *Click "updates" #1 is a video of me talking about my art & my project.
Rising out an economical crisis is a challenge in and of itself; then when you look at that economical challenge & learn that it is one of many rippling impacts which subsequently occurred as a result of having ones “basic human rights” violated; you're able to see a greater perspective of the magnitude, of adversities one must challenge them self to evolve through for 'an opportunity' to strive thrive & persevere. I’m using my art to create a successful passage through both. I’m not submitting to defeat. I’m not asking for a handout. I’m a hard working middle class American single mom, who’s an independent artist, in pursuit of creating, artistic success, with my art. Thank you for checking out my art, looking through my rewards & pledging your support.*
In 2004, I felt ‘called’ to Maui, so I hopped a plane with a back pack. No hotel reservation. No car rental. I simply “Arrived” & Maui was either going to embrace me or chew me up & spit me out; either way I was ready for the experience. I met artists, healers, collectors, tourists & locals. I hiked through the jungle & slept on the beach listening to waves crash on the shore. I strolled in & out of every Front Street gallery & in the evenings I watched the sunset, while envisioning my life flowing with the tide of creation. 2 amazing weeks later, I followed Rainbow Eucalyptus to Hotel Hana & checked myself in to a seaside bungalow; where I embraced the chill Maui vibe in reflection of my soulfully rich, creative adventure. *And... my "In the moment, with Maui" life changing experience, is the inspiration for 2 of my pledge rewards
while my gallery locations have paired me with the opportunity to experience local & international ‘walk-in’ traffic, my emerging success is a result of embracing creativity as a lifestyle, as well as setting & striving to achieve short term & long term goals; & while my short term goals is to produce L.E. & standard prints of my art; one my distant long term goals is to use my success to create the means that will some day allow me to create 'an opportunity' that evolves into opening a gallery in Maui.
I'd like to inspire $25,000 in art sales & pledge support, so that I can take a step forward & distance myself from life's residual impacts associated with inhumane adversity. Kickstarter is about creating 'opportunities' & I am using my art to create 'an opportunity' that will allow me to focus my time, effort and creative energy on artistically moving forward with my creative career & achieving success. My Kickstarter minimum goal is to raise 9,000 so that I can produce Museum Quality, Hand Embellished, Custom Framed, Limited Edition, Digital Art Prints; as well as standard prints of my art. Hand embellishing digital art is a time demanding, art form & by pledging your support (large or small) you are contributing to helping me produce quality never before printed, digital art; as well as stand prints of my art.
Every pledged dollar is equivalent to a moment of creative freedom (& effort) that is in pursuit of artistic success. Small pledges add up and make big differences, so please consider pledging your support even if it is only a dollar or 2. Achieving my goal will not only create an opportunity for me to produce prints of my art. Achieving my goal will also provide me with 'opportunities' to deliver exceptional art shows; while also increasing my art sales, accessibility & self-reliance; with an impact 'opportunity' that will subsequently increase my ability to create new opportunities in my pursuit to artistic success.
While my art studio and gallery in Big Bear has delivered bittersweet challenges & adversity, it also provided creative outlets that inspired personal, professional & evolutionary growth.
"Fire In the Sky" is also one of my digitally created works of art that I'd like to produce as a museum quality, hand embellished, custom framed, limited edition, digital art print.
In an effort to achieve my project goal, I am offering "The Assembly of Spirit" as a pledge reward that has 'an opportunity' to help me transform & evolve through the impacts & adversities "life" delivered; & with my success, have the opportunity to nurture the much needed healing within my family.
