I recently quit my job due to an increasingly insurmountable mental health crisis. More than anything right now, I want to make art for other people! If you donate $35 or more, I will make you custom artwork! Tiers below
Hello lovelies! I'm a Richmond-based artist with a B.F.A. in Painting + Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University and my pronouns are they/them. I'm a fine artist, a designer, an illustrator, and a memoirist with high aspirations - I'd like to continue making paintings and one day sell them on a larger scale. I'd like to write an illustrated memoir. I'd like to animate a short film.
I also have a brain that is difficult to manage at times, riddled with depression, anxiety, and a propensity for panic. The past year, and especially the past few months, have made it clear that at this juncture in my life, the only option left is to choose myself. So, here I am. This will be my last week of working at the corporate job I started in September - it hasn't been entirely unfulfilling, but it has exacerbated the decline in my mental health. I'm not exactly sure what happens next, but this is my start. I'm just a they/them standing in front of y'all asking y'all to give me your support.
More than anything, I want to get back to doing more of what I love and what makes me happy. That’s where you come in! While I’m trying to figure out the next step for myself, I could really use some help, and in exchange, I’d love to make some art for you!
