I am an independent visual artist who also writes a blog every week to support other independent visual artists by offering free practical advice, tips, and a showcase for their work. I try to minimise costs and Personally support the project financially as well as giving my time freely, often mentoring new artists and providing them with some direction.
Any monies raised will contribute to the upkeep of the blog and negate the need to charge artists by hiding behind a paywall. By covering the yearly costs associated with publishing the blog and spending the time to create new articles, I would be better able to continue providing this support. Times are challenging for artists right now and many are more likely to give up without regular encouragement and support.
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease a few years ago which makes life interesting at times, I also hold down a full time job outside of my blogging and art so that I am able to continue doing this. The cost of a coffee will make a significant difference so that I am able to continue providing this support week after week. Anything I already earn from sales of my own artworks via Fine Art America and Pixels already go towards the upkeep of the blog.
Many thanks for your support and please do continue to support a local independent artist in your community.
