My name is Rachel den Ambtman.
I need help with my medical bills for two things, first my ortho braces, my insurance only covers 1000 euro's but it will cost 2500-3000 more. I needed it because my teeth were moving forward over eachother and it was becoming very painfull.
I will also get other bills soon for other medical help which I need to pay for myself, it is for psycholigical help that I need to find out why I am to tired to work fulltime AND do my job inside the house.
I can only work 20 hours a week and with that I am allready way to tired to do anything in the house, even cooking a meal every evening costs so much energy, it isnt normal, especially for my age (27). I have this problem for years (I was 16 when I started noticing others could do way more) just couldnt find a docter that took me serious, now I finally have but the insurance isnt covering everything I need.
And ofcourse not being abble to work as much as most other people is making it really hard.
It is not life threathening but it is really really important for me to get through this to be abble to work on my dreams after the treatment. To be abble to become what I want to be with my art and start a family.
In return I offer small artwork and/or jewelry I make myself. With small artwork I mean:
Small inkdrawings or watercolour paintings 4x5,8 or 7x8,5 inch (10,5x14,8 or 17,8x21,6 cm)
Aceo cards 2.5x3.5 inch (6.4x8.9 cm)
A small watercolour painting on canvas 3.9x3.9 inch (10x10 cm) (I wrap highquality watercolourpaper around a small canvas with special artistic glue, acid free, that way you get the same 3D effect as with acrylic paint on canvas, sprayed with special watercolour varnish for protection)
For higher amounts of funding I will work bigger aswell
I only use high quality materials, acid free, winsor and newton aquarel.
The jewelry I make are pendants and is made with artistic silverwire (wire covered with a layer of silver) and special stones like amathyst, toermalin, tigerseye etc.
Or earings with silverwire, beads and/or small stones.
I Will start working on the commissions after this project has ended one by one. By that time I will ask you a 'keyword'. That word can be anything from an animal to an emotion, a word that has a special meaning to you. I will then make a painting or drawing based on inspiration I get from that word.
If I cant think of anything or you have a special wish with that word I could ask for reference to use for inspiration. I am not doing portrets, cars and/or fanart.
If I allready have time the coming month, I will start sooner and I will also ask for patience, making a painting takes time and if this project will work out it will mean I have to make a lot, it might take over 2 months to finish all of them and I am limited with my energy.
(The paintings will come without a frame to spare costs on mailing them, I will spray them with a special watercolour varnish to protect them against changing colour, but I do advise to frame them behind glass)
The reason I want to give rewards is because I dont want to get anything for nothing, even though I cant work fulltime I do want to do something for what I get. Making art is also working hard but its also something I really love to do and it often works as a therapie. And I love to give something special to people, especially when they are supporting me! Its a way for me to say thank you for helping me out.
