The Hong Kong Project

video
I am so excited! I am launching a kickstarter project.  I want to create my own artist residency in Hong Kong for two weeks and, at the end of this artistic journey, publish a coffee table and iPad book of my paintings, drawings, and photos.
Typically, an artist residency is where an artist visits a location to isolate themselves away from their typical environment. It allows the artist to have the gift of time to create based on entirely new creative influences!
I want to use this opportunity to create a series of oil paintings and drawings in order to be able to come back and edit and publish my first travel writing/art table book and have the book tell my story through artwork and photographs. 
I need your help! I need you to help me spread the word- so I can make my dream a reality.  Thanks for helping.  :)
