Please help me to fund my dream of becoming a full time artist and having my own studio!
Hello! My name is Meliz Sabanci and I am a visual artist who recently graduated from Arts University Bournemouth where I studied Fine Art. I specialise in oil painting on Aluminium Dibond and with a little support, I can continue developing my skills as an artist by exploring with new materials to make it the best it can be! I would love to be able to work full time as an artist, exhibiting with fresh work and completing commissions with my own studio set up. Funds are needed as I have requests to have prints readily framed for the public but I don't have the funds to do this yet.
How your support will help my dream come alive...
The budget is as follows:
Folding storage Easel - £80
Art desk - £75
Daylight lamp - £82
High quality printer for prints (Epson Artisan 1430 Wireless color wide-format Inkjet Printer) - £245
Frames for 20 prints - £200
Materials: Aluminium Dibond, Oil paints, Resin, paintbrushes, pots - £800
Plus the Crowdfunder fee (5% of total donations + VAT) - £75
TOTAL = £1547
This money I raised from crowdfunding will be used to produce high quality paintings which will allow me to sell those and others I have now. The profits will then be re-invested into more materials so that I can eventually have my own studio.
As a thank you, I will happily provide high quality prints at reasonable prices, framing service available for an additional £10/£15 depending on size.
I would be overjoyed if I could reach £1,500 as this would allow me to buy my studio equipment and get prints of my work readily framed, hopefully kickstarting my career as an artist.
I am very grateful for your time and any contribution no matter how little will really help! Thank you :)
