I’ve launched my first Kickstarter project! Watch the video to learn more.

As you may know, Kickstarter projects only raise their funding if they meet their minimum pledged goal by the deadline. I have until December 6th (16 days from today) to raise my funding goal of $4,000. Any help spreading the word will directly support handmade art!

For a pledge of only $25 you can choose your favorite print from the Thailand Burma Flora Fauna series, once complete. That’s a great price for handmade art.

This is an example from a previous body of work about California.

Pictured above is an example from my previous series about the flora and fauna of California. It is a print of a hare native to California paired with the California poppy, the Christmas beetle, and the silhouette of Mt. Shasta (all things found in the state California).

The Thailand Burma Flora Fauna series will be similar to this print, but the themes will reflect both the iconic and the little known natural treasures of Thailand and Burma.

I will be giving intensive drawing / design workshops with the apprentices at the Puzzlebox Art Studio in Mae Sot, Thailand. These workshops will help to determine which plants, animals, landscapes, and monuments will make the best designs for new artwork. This process will also help to create new images and designs to be made into products for the Puzzlebox to use to sustain itself.

When I return to Portland after five months of volunteering, I will choose the eight most dynamic images that I come up with to make into this new series of prints. What is unique about this project is that you can be a part of the process and watch the series unfold through email updates and blog posts, before choosing your favorite print! Sounds fun, right?

Thank you all for your support!
