Spirit of St. Augustine

Hi, My name is John and I'm fund raising to expand my creative art business to establish a showroom operation on St. Augustine, Florida, consisting of fine art/photography cityscapes and gift accessories.


I believe the creative industry is a part of essential business as much as any other if we are to maintain basic co creative economic fundamentals that built America.


I've just spent months traveling across America. Everywhere I go, it's the same.

The post pandemic era brings many challenges to artist and craftsmen in order to maintain a 'Made in America' insignia more than ever. More and more, small business, especially co creatives, are being pushed out of inner city America, leaving unsustainable commercial and corporate interests.


We must maintain our culture, through art and the co creative industry.


Your help, support, and contributions will go a long way in assisting not only my business, but my efforts to assist the co creative industry as a whole, whether it's $5.00, or $500.00


Thank you!
