What’s Going On. 

Since graduating I’ve had to work to pay my bills and use my creativity to pay my bills when work didn’t. I sold affordable pet portraits to colleagues and friends- This was fun to do but couldn’t charge much for the work. I had to quit my most recent job and it has left me in a lot of trouble mentally and financially. For me to insure my car it costs over £140 a month and for me to pay for the finance and warranty on said car is a further £150 per month. The reason why I give this information is to give some insight as to what a job pays for. The kind of jobs I’ve worked until now were basic minimum wage roles and I’m now working to get a salary job. My drive for creativity has inspired a direction for Interior Design and Biophillic Design as a career. Biophillic Design is the incorporation of nature and environmental components to work and living environments. My degree relates to the interest of design as a field but Postgraduate degree courses don’t allow anyone to move forward with them unless you have design experience. This is where this plea comes to action. My financial situation is not good right now. My former job not helping and causing more debt to mount has devoured any savings and I’ve lost all of my independence. What I’m asking for. I’m asking for some help to get my savings back up to pay my way forward to pay for a home course - online Diploma for Interior Design. I have so many ideas and ambitions and no funds to do anything. - I’m determined to exhibit at gallery shows and share my work more. The more art I can create, the better my mentality. - Biophillic Design is something I need to be a part of in future and I encourage you to look it up. - Bills are something everyone has to pay, when you’re unemployed, searching for work and have no financial backup it can take a toll on your mental health. This is just something I have to overcome and I need to pay my arrears and get saving again. - the Diploma for a home study course (without any other design support materials) costs £600. I am embarrassed to be asking for help from strangers, and I am aware of the level of importance this takes against other, more beneficial projects that can benefit a community, but if you don’t ask, you don’t get.
