Weʼve raised £50 to purchase art materials and studio space to keep creating art

I am a disabled contemporary artist living in the midlands UK. In 2010 I suffered a life changing spinal injury. In 2015 I was made ill health retired from my job, and went into a period of terrible depression. Unable to find work due to my disability, I decided to create art to give me a purpose in life. Unfortunately, with the high cost of materials I find it extremely difficult to create work, so I was advised to seek crowd funding to enable me to create work and get it exhibited, so here I am! Any funding I receive will go towards paint, canvas, board, and also to pay for studio space and storage of works of art. Artists through history have always needed patrons to help them create, and any funding to help me keep making art will be most gratefully received. Thank you.

Just to say, many thanks to those who donated to my campaign. The donations have assisted me in creating over sixty works of art for a large solo exhibition taking place at Himley Hall near Dudley in the West Midlands next year! I can't thank you enough.
