With your help, I will devote my summer to making many new works of art! I am energized and excited at the prospect of working on art this summer at full force. Help me put on my largest show yet! 

My deepest love is creating art, and I'd like to share that with you and the world. I want you to have a piece of unique artwork in exchange for your support!

I make pieces from paper cutouts, painted in gouache and lined in ink. I am inspired by nature's beauty, and pull images of plants, flowers and places. Along with organic free-flowing shapes, I twist the images with abstract details and vibrant colors. The paper pieces are layered and combined together until they create imaginative entities. 

I have been so fortunate since moving to Seattle as wonderful things continue to happen in my artist life. I wish to keep improving my craft, preparing and applying to more art opportunities. In the near future I will be attending Raw Artists arts show on May 23rd at the Aston Manor Social Club, and continue to display at Venue- Ballard artist boutique.

I am asking for your help to turn my goals into reality! Your greatly appreciated assistance would be funding:

The Summer Art Intensive Project of Fun! Over the next three months I will: 

1. Create the largest work of art that I have ever done, 4' by 6'. 

2. Make 10 new works in a variety of sizes ranging between 11" by 14" to 28"by 36".

3. Create original works of art as rewards, for you my dear supporters! 

4. Put on an art show in Seattle, of my summer collection in August/September!

Your money would be going towards paint, paper, adhesives, frames, supplies, the event venue, additional costs, marketing, and time

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is attempting this, and not raising the full amount. I am too excited at the idea and risk being let down.....

A much better option, my challenge will be having a heep of fun artwork to do!
