"Community arises from the meeting of needs. There is no community possible among people who do not need each other. Therefore, any life that seeks to be independent of other people for the meeting of one's needs is a life without community." -Charles Eisenstein

Are you in a place of financial privilege and want to support others who aren't as blessed?

Do you love supporting the artists, the creatives, the nitty-gritty small business owners pursuing their dreams, but don't necessarily need more physical things (more artwork, more trinkets, etc.)?

Every month, small businesses and people going through difficult times contact me who love my work but cannot afford it. Sometimes they want a mural for their business, sometimes they need a super meaningful gift for someone who is supporting them as they are going through a hard time. I have been helped by healers, teachers, and guides willing to allow me to barter with them in the past when I did not value my art or myself enough to ask for what I needed.

Now that I am in a place where people often approach ME to barter, I sometimes do it; yet most often what I need at this stage in my life is money to care for myself and those in my care, and start planning for my future as a self-employed person who needs to create her own pension, retirement fund, etc.

If you are a person who would like to support others who need art from me but are not in a place to afford it, this is a place where you can donate money. Scholarship applicants always contribute something towards bringing this new piece of art-energy into their lives. It is a partial scholarship; I aim to match 80-100% of my asking price for my art from: a) the funds they are willing to contribute and b) those you are willing to give; art is distributed once the funds have been provided. For more information on the applicant's process, visit LAMBFINEART.COM and click on the scholarship application.
