34907356_1544043236471899_r.jpegIn September 2019 I’ll be attending a 4-week artist residency at the Chateau d’Orquevaux in France!

It is a dream come true to create and share my art with other creatives from around the world! I believe this goes perfectly with my soul purpose and I'm excited to have already been vetted and selected for this experience in France.

I was also fortunate enough to receive The Denis Diderot [A-i-R] Grant that covers some of the cost of the residency.
(I posted my acceptance letter below)

The grant that received does NOT include airfare, some art supplies, and travel expenses, which is why I'm asking help to raise these necessary funds.

As some of you may know I was recently let go (for the 8th time) from an employer in a training program I was in.....I decided from all the compiling issues with working in the trades (racism, harassment, sexism, and homophobia) and with no foreseeable accountability from the employers and WECA programs part...I have decided to NOT continue putting myself thru physical, mental and emotional stress and leave that field to be full-time artist.....this was meant for me to do this because 8 layoffs from work, with significant preparation and advancement in my artistry.... how could I ignore such a clear sign?

That being said a lot of you have seen my artistic journey for the past 3 years and even before moving to California.....So if you can I'm doing my final push for those that are able to help out, or those who have said they will donate and have not yet, this would be a perfect time! I am about %65 paid for this trip. Residency paid for, Plane tickets Purchased, and now I am raising money for travel insurance, art supplies, and expenses and emergency funds.

Thanks for reading!! I know my purpose and would love to share that with you all.

Today I took another step to really immerse my self in my upcoming 4-week long residency. I wanted to expand on my experience and apply for an intern position at the Chateau!

I got it!! So besides being a resident artist, I can now spend an extra 2 weeks at the Chateau as an Intern opening further opportunities in Orquevaux, France.

Talk about boss moves!! So, I leave for France in August instead and would love the help and kindness in raising a bit more money for the extra for art supplies and travel insurance, and expenses ill need!!

Please share or donate!
