For the past 4 years I filed my taxes as "artist." It was a point of pride for me. If anyone said I wasn't an artist because I didn't go to art school, or do X amount of exhibitions, I'd say "well the government considers me an artist, so I must exist."
This year, I had to ask my parents to pay my taxes. That stung my pride. I had to remind myself that if there hadn't been a pandemic, this wouldn't have happened. But then I wonder. If it is no longer financially viable to be an artist, what should I do? In every scenario I imagined, I knew I would want to end up right back here. In my studio. I simply can't abandon my art practice. But I also can't do it alone.
Gift cards are basically like tiny short-term loans or investments, except later you get something physical in return. My current catalog isn't enough to sustain me, but I am trying to grow this so it can. As I grow my offerings, I am sure you will see something you love. Then you can just use your credits like a gift card! Even $10 would be a great help in keeping my career. Artists need people like you!
If you would like to support my journey as an artist, get dibs on future products, or otherwise would like a gift card from me, this is how to do it! I have set up a patronage voucher- it works just like a gift card, except you get automatically added to a patronage program.
What does that mean? I can't give specifics right now, but it could be first access to product releases, discounts, or access to special members-only sales.
Your support, as always, means the world to me!
If you would like to purchase a voucher on behalf of another, simply include their name and email in the shopping cart notes.
