When balancing work and family, sometimes art supplies take a backseat, in favor of more practical expenses. This is a chance to do something for my art without the money getting diverted to another expense.

I would like to raise funds in order to finish my photographic series, Bit Parts. Although I have had some success showing and selling my work, I am at a standstill right now due to financial issues. As a mother of 2 (soon to be 3) kids, most of the money I make from my photography goes to family-related expenses. Funding for a specific project through Kickstarter would be an ideal way for me to get money devoted to my own work.

I would like to finish my series and prepare it for publication and a gallery show. But in order to do so, I need to buy some new supplies, as I have completely run out of many of my supplies, such as ink and paper, and both my computer and my printer need some repairs.

You can see the finished pieces from the series here: www.mia-beach.com, along with other examples of my work.
