Dear Friends, family, and fellow artists,

I need your help. Recently, I received a huge honor and opportunity that would be heartbreaking to pass up. I was chosen as one of ten glass artists across the country to attend a week long collaborative workshop this May at the Bullseye Glass Factory Studio for Research and Education in Portland, OR. Bullseye Glass is the leader in glass education, and the chance to learn from the best in my field is something I have only dreamt of. The experience will help me further develop my teaching skills, and I plan to share what I learn to encourage my students in their work.

The entire workshop, including materials is being provided free of charge to me. but I am responsible for covering my travel and stay expenses while I am there. Frustratingly, the high cost of traveling to Portland and staying in a hotel for 8 days becomes a real problem. I need to raise about $1,200 to cover my travel costs in order to be able to accept this opportunity, and while I absolutely hate the idea of asking anyone to give, I know how foolish I would be to let this chance pass by.

HERE IS WHAT I CAN OFFER IN RETURN FOR YOUR HELP~

I am hoping to earn my way to Portland by selling as much of my artwork as possible to offset costs; this way you can help AND get something nice in return. I have most of my glass work and oil paintings available for sale and auction on my website, and in my Daily Paintworks Gallery-(see links below)

Also, if you are able, I would very gratefully accept donations or sponsors. I will be blogging and sharing my journey while in Portland, so in a sense you can come along with me.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Yours in art,
