Small Sweet and Quiet is a one woman show that I will be performing in the upcoming month at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton. It will be my first solo show in a long time and I am so pleased to be working with the amazing team of historian Ann McDougall and shadow artist Sean Frey.
I have decided to do a fundraiser to help cover some of the costs involved in the production including fees for the artistic team as well as production costs. The idea is that you donate a certain amount and you get some of my artwork in return. Please note that these prints will not be made available anywhere else. Here is how it works. You will receive a print on an archival paper using acid free inks to ensure the quality. The image will be a 6 x 6 inch image on a 8 x 11.5 piece of paper. The print runs are editions of 25!
a) You choose from either the Small, Sweet or Quiet Packages.
b) Click on the Donate button. Follow the instructions. Let me know in the notes which print you will be interested in and or if you would prefer buttons to magnets!
c) Sit back and wait for your package to arrive and know that our forever appreciation is sent your way for this support!
Small but ever so sweet! A $10 donation gets you a random offering of three vintage magnets and/or pins. You let me know which you would prefer and I will make sure that they arrive at your doorstep. Every bit counts and we will mention you on our social media site!
We love the silent but strong supporters! A $25 donation gets you a limited edition print of your choice of one of my 9 mixed media collage pieces created for this campaign. We will also give a shout out on our social media sites.
We love the Sweet Donation here at GirlCanCreate! A $100 donation gets you the super pack of three limited edition prints of your choice, four random vintage postage stamp cards, and a random selection five vintages buttons or magnets. We will list you as our of our Sweet sponsors in the program and will give a shout out on our social media site!
Please share this campaign far and wide! We look forward to sharing more about this fundraiser with you!
