 I am a visually impaired artist fighting to continue creating.  I am working towards transitioning to sculpture/pottery before all my vision is completely gone.  I am planning to continue painting until I'm told that the art is bad and I stop enjoying it.  So many people have told me my dream is impossible and, "How can you paint like that?"  Well, there is a good answer; I paint at about one inch, and I will be brailling my art supplies at my first opportunity.  Some of the hazards of painting with very limited vision is that there are tiny nose prints all over my work and always have paint in my hair. To help hide this, I just keep my hair various bright colors.  Even at one inch, painting is getting extremely difficult.  I am treating every single painting as if it was my last, because it very well could be.  

I am grateful to all my supporters for helping me to continue creating artwork and adapting to other mediums.  I couldn't do it without your help.  I hope you enjoy my work and thank you again for joining me on this challenging journey of transitioning to sightless creations.
Tiers

I title this tier as Burnt Sienna because every one of my paintings begins with it.  It lets me build the foundation to a great painting.


You have my eternal gratitude! Every dollar helps me reach my goal to continue to create and share what I've learned. Thank you!!

Goals
$46 of $1,200 per month
This money will assist in my challenging transition into continue creating art while sightless.  My life, heart, and soul is being poured into every piece as if it was the last one I'd ever see, and each one just might be. Thank you so much for helping me keep fighting for my dreams and allowing me to share the journey with you.  Buckle up, it'll probably be a very bumpy ride, but I'm more than determined to succeed.
