I was very recently selected as an Artist-in-Residence at the Arteles Creative Center in Finland for November 2014, but am asking for support in funding this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I was very recently selected as an International Artist-in-Residence at the Arteles Creative Center in Haukijärvi, Finland for November 2014. As one of the largest residency centers in all of Scandinavia, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is an incredibly exciting accomplishment for a young artist, and will play a valuable role in the development of my professional career.

With hardly any time to financially plan for this opportunity, the costs of traveling, studio fees, art supplies, and everyday living expenses is beyond what I can afford. Please consider showing your support by contributing to help alleviate the fincial stress. All funding that is raised will still go directly towards my residency. Your generosity and support is GREATLY appreciated, and is a key factor in helping this become a reality.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I have included "perks" to go along with various contribution amounts of equal value. I am also willing to negotiate different perks/amounts if you have something specific you would rather we "rewarded" with...just shoot me an e-mail and we can work something out.

Originally growing up the Chicago Suburbs, I have spent the last five years living in Marquette, Michigan. I earned my BFA in Printmaking from Northern Michigan University in May of 2013. Immediately after graduating, I decided to continue my education as a Post-Baccalaureate student to earn my second Bachelors degree, a BA in Art History. While finishing my second degree, my main goal is to continue developing my portfolio and building my resume before applying to Graduate programs. Ultimately, I want to be a professor so I can make a career of creating, experimenting, researching, and sharing my love for art, art history, and art theory.
