About

As a visual artist I am seeking to not only break into the field by getting my name and work recognized by a larger audience, but also to be able to acquire the tools necessary for my craft.  I have thought about exhibiting my work, but lack the resources necessary to accomplish this goal.  I will use the Kickstarter funds to purchase materials such as an easel, a mat cutter, frames, printer and the remaining amount will go towards producing prints made to order from my website www.emilyselwood.com so that I can get my work recognized by more people!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk an artist faces is rejection -- whether its the style of art that doesn't mesh with the viewer, a difference of opinion, or a home-cooked meal that didn't pass the taste test with the family; it's something everyone has had to deal with sometime or another and it's very hard to cope with at times.

I want to please everyone that backs my Kickstarter project and will do all that I can to meet the deadlines and requirements needed by the wonderful people who decide to support my goal.
