HELP ME TO REALISE MY LIFE LONG DREAM 

The only way I can make an income now is through what I can create.

3 years ago I was struck down with Fibromyalgia. A debilitating and unpredictable disease which makes regular employment almost impossible. I have been unable to work for the past year or more. I have always been drawn to my artistic and creative side. Painting, writing and photography have been passions that have helped me in maintaining my sanity throughout my life. I have always been too busy to allow myself the time needed to fully immerse myself in my creative work.

Now I have the time to create but am lacking two tools that are essential for me to use in my creative process and to allow me to generate income from my art.

I believe this project will help me to overcome the indescribable depression that accompanies this insidious chronic illness while also allowing me some freedom in life to become independent as I once was.

I need $2500 to buy a laptop and an A3 colour printer so that I can create, market, and sell the artwork I have been dreaming of. Please help me to realise my life long dream and to fight against my debilitating illness. I am a mum to two teen daughters who i would love to make proud of me by getting back on my feet again. This project will help me on that path.  You can check out some of my previous work on my Facebook page

It is down to the last week for pledging to my Fundraiser to help me raise funds to pay for equipment, toools and framing costs to get me painting. The response has been amazing so far and the support of my friends and family has been awesome. please think about pledging from just $5 and share with your crowd. All donations will recieve lovely gifts and you can message me if you would like to commission work or select a piece from my facebook or instagram profiles that you really love.

Hey pledgers not far to go till the end of this project.  The deadline to meet the funding target is just under 2 weeks away now and is looking pretty slim chances to make it. So if you are still keen after the project is finished and you get refunded your pledge please feel free to contact me personally or through one of my pages @[email protected] instagram or Facebook and we can make private arrangements for you to receive your reward and pledge direct to me. In the mean time keep sharing the info about my pledge so others can enjoy the same. On the upside, I have had a wonderful partisan of my art let me use her credit to buy a laptop yay and which another patron of my art is going to make the payments for so I am half way there in the real world. Having this laptop has already allowed me to make some amazing leaps ahead with my work. I am so grateful to you all. Xx
