Art Work Debt

I am a freelance artist with a PhD in Art. Ever since studying for my PhD I have accumulated debt, because I can not find regular work. It is hard to sell artwork without gallery representation, so even though I have been lucky enough to be involved in exhibitions much of my artwork sits in storage and is unseen. Meanwhile I work when ever I can, but most of the work available is short term, so I am unable to pay off my debts and end up paying more money to banks, (this is a very difficult situation to change on a low income). As an artist I have much to give to the world, but some times it is hard to give, because the art world tends to focus on big names to draw crowds to galleries. One can remain relatively unknown even if one has been working in the arts for years. In the current virus situation many art organisations have closed to stop the spread of the virus and all my normal work in film, tv, schools and universities has been postponed making things far worse for me on a financial level. For the past few years, worry about my finances has plagued me. I want to be not paying the banks money in the way that I am at the moment and I want to be contributing to the arts and education in a positive way as an artist and worker. If you can, please do help fund me so I can pay off my bank debts. I would be very happy to sell my artwork to you or donate pieces for any contribution. Many thanks.
