Project Description

Raw emotion is truth to me and that is what goes into my paintings.

I am passionate about my art and am dedicated to its process. Being a working artist, I rely on my private mentoring, workshops, classes and some art sales for income. I am totally dependent on both my computer and digital camera for photographing my paintings, digital filing, marketing of my classes, and communicating with my students, galleries, and collectors. I use these tools daily. However, they are both failing. My computer is over eight years old and my camera is over twelve. I need to replace them and I am requesting financial support to purchase both a new computer and a digital camera.
