I'm a young hospitality student and freelancing artist from Adelaide, Australia. I am self-taught and I spend a lot of time practising and perusing online galleries and magazines for inspiration. I hope that one day I can do this full time.

I've started a crowdfunding campaign with Pozible and I need your help!
 I am excited to announce that I'm going to have my very first solo art exhibition in January 2015! This is a fantastic opportunity to get my work out there. The thing is, I must fund it 100% myself. I have been working hard this year on creating pieces for the show as well as fighting depression and anxiety, which make it difficult to work. I take shifts when I can and work functions and events by night, and draw by day. 

The more funds I raise, the better the show can be. Ideally, I would love to be able to frame and get gicleé prints of all of my work on beautiful, gallery-quality paper from local printing & framing businesses. With enough money raised, I will be able to share my artwork with the world and maybe even be able to do this thang full time. (here's hoping!)

So enough about ME, what do YOU get out of this? Well, as I'm aware, most of my watchers here do not live locally, which means you won't be able to make it to my awesome show. However, you CAN still get in on some of the action. Rewards start from a measly few dollars and you can grab some of my artwork at seriously reduced prices, in thanks for helping me out. Some rewards even feature commissions and hand embellished prints made special for the project! 10% from the sale of each artwork in the exhibition will be donated to beyondblue. They are an organisation dedicated to helping the 3 MILLION Australians living with depression or anxiety everyday, like me.

So any and all funds raised will not only help get my artwork off the computer screen and onto the public gallery walls, but you'll also be helping beyondblue, all the while grabbing some nifty artworks for yourself.

  • Leave your deviantART name in a comment once you've pledged, and not only will you be in the draw to win 1000 points, I'll give you a fancy journal feature too.
  • And if you follow me over on facebook, just leave a comment once you've pledged and you'll be in the running to win a limited edition hand embellished print worth  $250!
  • Please share, favourite, like, comment or anything that will help get my tiny voice out there! Thank you in advance!!


You can pledge as much or as little as you like! There's basically nothing different from buying my work any other time, except it's now discounted. (yay!)

So tell everyone! This is an all-or-nothing crowdfunding program which means if I don't reach the target, I don't get zip. Hopefully by January next year I will be able to share with you some pictures and videos of my progress, and some snapshots from the opening night (AKA night of my dreams.)


Thank you so much, in advance,

Chelsea
