About this project
All of my life I’ve dreamed of being a professional painter. When I paint, I feel purpose, I feel alive. The support of my family and friends has helped my creativity to flourish.
My love for animals and their beauty inspired this project and I want to give back to them for being my muse. A portion of the proceeds from my first solo exhibition will be donated to Animal Ethics charity. http://www.animal-ethics.org/
The “Animalize” collection features a wide variety of animals. The intention is for viewers to feel connected by gazing into the animal’s eyes, into their soul. To animalize means to arouse sensuality found in nature. By connecting with these animals I hope you experience something intimate and discover a close affinity for them.
I instill positive thoughts into each painting and I want this good energy to fill the homes of the future owners of these animals.
Your funds will help make my first solo exhibition a reality. All of the paintings are complete, just the logistics of displaying them remains.
With your help we can make this exhibition happen. With your help, I will continue to paint with positivity and love. I cherish your love and support, every little bit counts!
P.s. Here is one of my paintings that will be printed on the stickers and on some of the prints. I will leave the rest of the animals as a surprise for when the collection is out. But I hope this piece will give you a little feel of the "Animalize".

Risks and challenges
This is my first solo exhibition and I am learning new things everyday. The biggest challenges that my team and I are currently facing is the planning of the exhibition and budgeting. I am taking a risk and asking for the public’s support. A possible future challenge can be to have all prints delivered on time, as it is hard to predict in advance how many orders will occur and to what part of the world. That being said, thanks to the amazing & dedicated team that I have helping me along the way, I have faith that we will overcome any and all challenges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
