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!!! This feels like it aligns 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 have $1600 left to pay and I was able to pay the 588 USD deposit of acceptance. (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.

Knowing this, I still feel really positive and sure about the potential for next year with the help of my community. It's as if some force is looking out for me and I'm being taken care of and I just know things work out! I have trust in what the universe has gifted me! 

Amazingly I already raised the first installment of the fees I had to pay by January 3rd (a total of 1600 dollars) by selling off the rest of my assets.

1st goal: The second half of the installment fees are due February 29th (another 1600 dollars) which I would like to raise by Feb. 22nd because of the processing time with Stripe payments.

My 2nd and the overall goal now is 3200 USD which would include residency fees AND helps with all the travel expenses (flight, shipping, some art supplies, and emergency funds) 

Would love your support in helping my dreams evolve into reality! It’s here, it’s my time, thank you for being on this journey with me!

*even buying from my shop helps, income from sales goes straight to my fundraiser!*

For those that donate a significant amount, I would love to send you some of my art prints, my artwork on fabric, or an original art piece. Please contact me above!

Hey everyone! I recently got hired with a new contractor! That means I can save for other expenses on my own! BUT I still need the support of the community as I have less than 1.5 months to raise for my last payment of $1600 . I’m so thankful to start work again but it still is a short time to raise 1600 EXTRA dollars on top of monthly bills. I lowered my fundraiser goal to reflect this, I’m almost there and would love the extra push. Eternally grateful -Angelica ✨
