My name is Niki Purcell and I am an Irish artist based on the Wicklow/Wexford border on the South East coast of Ireland.
I am very lucky to live in a beautiful place surrounded by amazing views, my work as an artist is inspired by my surroundings
I live in a small home shared with 3 dogs, my daughter and Husband, I have a small corner to try and work in and often its very hard to do anything, as my painting space is right at the front door and there is a lot of comings and goings…
I have dreamed and saved for a wood cabin to turn into a studio and managed to get the deposit and most of the cost of the cabin but the last year has completely thrown a major spanner into my dream and I am short by €5000, I know this is not a major issue compared to whats going on in the world and there are far more serious situations to be in but for me and my mental heath it’s a big thing, my creativity and expression of that has been crampted and crammed ever smaller, I so need a space to grow in and expand my work
I am looking to raise the balance of what I cant scrap togather myself, it would make a huge difference to my life and allow me to keep painting and to paint larger works…..
I am going to set up a Fund:it campaign to help raise the balance I need so watch this space to Find out more!
There will be 4 Fund:it Levels €25, €50, €250 and €500 with different rewards for each level
Details will be added in the next few days…..
