Ashes to Art is ready to take the next step forward. I am wanting to rent a booth at a local marketplace called The Funky Trunk. It is important that I reach more clientele in order to grow as a business, and to grow as an artist. This booth will allow me to showcase some simple, yet elegant designs on jewelry boxes, barrels, and small plaques, while also allowing me to create custom, one of a kind, wood burnings for clients who’s wish is a more personal and emotional piece of art. Those of you who have been following me know that this is my passion. This is how I evoke emotion and a connection with my clients, whether it is through their triumph, or tragedy. Actually having a place to display some of my work is the next step. It is a Leap of Faith, and for that I am asking for your help. I want to raise about $500 to help me get started on this journey. The money will help me pay the upfront costs of booth rental, and the first couple of months of rent itself. It will help me stock up on supplies used during the burning process, but also allow me to purchase some extra blank canvases. I hope you all can give a little, to help me achieve a dream of mine, to create amazing pieces of art that families can cherish for many generations.
