Help Fund My Artist's Residency!

$1,905 of $1,600 goal

Raised by 14 people in 67 months
Hello Friends and Family!

As some of you may know, I have recently been awarded the position of Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Through this tremendous opportunity, I will have the ability to continue to pursue my personal artistic practice and lifelong goal to professionally teach the craft of woodworking that I love so much.

If everything goes to plan, in a few short months I will be making and teaching alongside renowned artists and craftspeople as part of an incredible creative community. Unfortunately, there are a few financial obstacles in my way. Recently, my car died and is officially gone for good. What I'm now faced with are the costs of relocating my entire creative practice (we're talkin' woodworking tools!) to the other side of the country.

What your donation will go towards:
1. Materials and related expenses to make my art!! We're talkin' lumber y'all!
2. My flight to eastern Tennessee, (and a flight back home when it's all done, you want to see me again right?!)
3. Freight costs to ship tools and equipment.

Every dollar given will be used to support my artistic practice in addition to the cross-country move. While a Resident at Arrowmont, I will continue the work that I developed as the thesis for my master's degree in Fine Art: a design/build process that involves entire communities and that seeks to empower and elevate consumers to makers through the teaching of hands-on woodworking techniques.

I am thrilled by this opportunity and I hope you will help me get there! As thanks for your donation, I'd love nothing more than to give you a handmade, one-off creation of your choice! I have been known to make fairly rad stuff from time to time:

Reward level goodies will be mailed off no later than July 20th.
