Help Paedra and her studio

Artist Paedra Bramhall needs your help. 
On September 9th, Paedra’s glass studio was viciously vandalized and burglarized.  All of the electrical wires and most of the light fixtures were ripped from the ceilings and walls and the burners were stolen from the furnace.  Paedra’s tools were stolen and, most devastatingly, some of Peadra’s stunning and irreplaceable art work in glass was destroyed (see images below).  Paedra was unable to afford insurance on her studio, as it was too costly to insure while the furnaces were running.  Paedra’s income is limited to social security.  Whatever she earns from her art sales goes back into the cost of art supplies.  

Paedra is a 75 year-old, transgendered Male to Female artist, who has had been out and proud for more than 20 years.  A beautiful and important part of her artistic quest focuses on the sexuality of being female.  She has been a full time producing artist in Bridgewater, VT, since graduating from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1970.  She has worked comfortably in a wide array of media from paper to glass to bronze to digital.  Her widely collected blown art glass INTERIORS are like no other glass created by any other artist. She has created small to large scale bronze sculptures, that took years to complete.  Paedra has worked on paper and most recently in digital media.  Paedra’s lifelong commitment to following her vision has often meant choosing to live on the financial edge.  Her art is her life.  AND now she needs your help to make it possible to put her studio back into working order.  ANY AMOUNT is tremendously appreciated! 

Paedra thanks you from her whole being!!!
