I am at a point in my life where situations can go either way. Meaning, I Can choose to continue making art for the people, or work part time of 9-5 work hours as a security guard some where in NYC and not do art anymore.

I am currently not working, but I am a stay at home mom. I am at a point where I noticed that going to shows / art shows is expensive. Transportation, food money and art supplies with canvas leads me to have wholes in my pockets. Its not cheep. I cant split food money for my child to those of my art needs. My son will always come first. Because money in my house hold is limited, and I don't spend money on myself, I would rather utilize your contributions for my art.

I love painting, its what I came to terms with, after it saved me from dwelling on personal life crisis. Art saved me from deviating to the life waves of crime and hooked addictions of drugs or other negative activities in New York City. I believed that art was given to me from DIVINE source, and I don't know why I have it, but I sure do know I must share it. It is also why I am asking for your help. If you like to make a positive contribution to an inspiring artist, please donate what you wish.

If you have any opinion please share, I do want to create a friendship and also an understanding of art in life and how its linked, then feel free to contact me.

Thank you so much for you ongoing support and understanding
