I am currently looking at my work from a different perspective. I want to make art and be seen by my community as an artist.
I have been asked to create an exhibit for a Gallery. This involves investing in more materials to create pieces that invoke memories and forgotten emotion. I now need to create those pieces.
My pieces are created using many components. I need to purchase the items I cannot forage for. Antique windows are difficult to find and are quite expensive. Flowers, glass, paper, paint - all of these add up.
In order to achieve my goal I need to have people who believe in me and my work, Receiving financial backing is imperative.
This project will also help support and promote the Lotus Gallery and its artistic partnership with Eyvan Books Cafe. I want to support my community and fellow artisans.
Risks and challenges
I will complete this project by believing I am a true 'artist'. I love creating.
Not always do others view me as an artist. I want to prove that I am.
I have also applied to be an artist in residence at the City of Edmonton's Cemeteries. I want to learn, grow and expand.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
