Community Artist

Help! For 25 years I have been making day-glow art as a gift for San Francisco. I often do this work for free, as a labor of love, and I’ve never had any trouble scraping together the money on a project-by-project basis. 

Unfortunately the company that makes Jazz (the tempera-based Day-Glow paint I have been using for almost all of my art for the past two decades) has informed me that they are discontinuing the line, and I only have a few more weeks left to make a final order.

I have honed my craft using this specific paint, and it will take time to find a replacement source for this specialized, glow-in-the-dark paint. Until then I still need the ability to keep making art uninterrupted. Ideally I’d like to acquire a years supply of this paint, and a few more basic art supplies. 

If you’re unfamiliar, I am a Burning Man artist, a founding member of the Gayglo Street Theater,   and the Creative Director for Comfort&Joy. 

With your help I will be able to continue spreading my colorful art near and far!

Thank you for supporting me in what I love to do.
