About this project

My name is Cheryl Lynn Pastor and I am a visual artist and designer based in the suburban Detroit area. I just acquired an agent last month who is very excited about representing me and my paintings and designs for the upcoming fall season of shows here in the Detroit area.  The fall shows begin towards the end of August and the beginning of September, so my work pretty much needs to be finished by the end of summer 2012.  I am looking to create a whole new body of work entitled Cultural Chic, which is a fusion of the fine and decorative arts with mixed media wearable and functional art.

Wearable and functional art will consist of handcrafted embellished handbags and statement jewelry such as necklaces, earrings and bracelets.  I use beads, leather, yarn, and fabric (including painters canvas) to create these one of a kind pieces which tend to be a mixture of methods consisting of knitting, crocheting, fiber art, such as the nano method of felting and fusing knit fibers with silk, sewing, and bead work.

The fine art will consist of original abstract and figurative paintings, fashion illustrations and various works on paper.

What I need:                                                                                             Any type of support you can give, but mostly money :0) In order to create a quality body of work I will need at least $2500.00.

What's the money for?                                                                         50% for Painting and craft materials (stretched and unstretched professional quality canvases, gesso, watercolor paper and large bristol board pads, brushes, fabric, yarn, wool fibers, leather, beads, findings).

20% for Frames for works on paper.

10% - Printing for showings and rewards.                                                   

20% for display materials (wall hanging tools, jewelry and other wearable art display tools).

What to donate?                                                                                    As much or as little as you like. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.  Of course, the more you donate, the greater the level of appreciation. I've been doing this a long time and I make really cool stuff!

So scroll up the page on the right side to where it says "Back This Project." Click on that and simply follow the easy instructions.

Okay, just a little note of interest:  If I don't reach my goal of $2,500.00, I'm left destitute.  I gets nothing.  Nada. No funding AT ALL :0(
But...Oh Happy Day, I can always get MORE than my original goal, NEVER less.

You've been positively grand folks.  Thanks so much in advance!
