I am a self-employed artist as of this year because of Coivd. I am saving up to do multiple things with my art.
One is building an extension on my house for a studio. A place where I can relentlessly work and not have to recoup and set up as much for my creative process. This would help me tremendously in overall production and save cost in renting a space for a studio. At the same time, opening up other avenues in my art exploration, such as sculpture and bigger canvases.
Two would be able to invest in getting my artwork viewed by zoos, aquariums, bug houses, and animal shelters. When investigating a potential partnership with zoos and aquariums, they often have a money drop barrier before viewing art products. Pairing up with centers that are animal-focused is close
to my goal of gaining love and re-interest in our animals.
Three would be able to create a book filled with my artwork and perhaps photography with educational facts about the animal and the environment. I am just breaching my 100th artwork of various animals; I would like to create 200 more within a four-year constraint and send it to my favorite BBC narrator and other orgainzations.
Alison Martz-Bozarth graduated from Webster University with a bachelor's in Fine Arts and an Emphasis in Illustration in 2017. She was the first Illustration Emphasis at that school and has helped forge the program during her time there, where she experimented with medium and style to find a look that was truly her.
