Some of you may know me personally, some of you may know me through my artwork, and some of you may not know me at all. My name is Carrie Anne Hudson, and I am a visual artist living in San Diego, CA.. and I have been offered one hell of an opportunity.

I have actively been painting and drawing throughout my whole life. Art is my life. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in art exhibitions in the San Diego community, as well as LA. I try to create, show, and sell as much art as I can - this is my dream. However, it's a hard dream to pursue. While I try to hustle my artwork, and reach out to new communities, I have more than experienced what it is to be a "starving artist". Living on tips, and working part time as a cocktail waitress in a bar isn't really the dream I had in mind, but it is currently the only way I can support myself.

About a month ago, I came across an art newsletter discussing an upcoming program in June, 2014 - a chance to be a part of an "artist residency" in Sibiu, Romania. Usually I skip over these sort of emails, but for some reason I couldn't with this one, I wanted to know more. After reading through the Dacia Gallery website (the gallery hosting the residency), as well as all the facts and benefits of the program, I decided to apply. Why the hell not, right?

Now here's the thing, this program accepts applications from artists worldwide, and there was almost a month deadline to apply. I had to submit multiple samples of my artwork, my bio, etc. The program only accepted 20 artists, so of course, I didn't think I really had a shot, but it was also a shot I would have regretted not taking. After a week of submitting my application, checking my email every 5 minutes, and biting my lips, I found out I got in. I HAD BEEN ACCEPTED. Holy shit! I am going to Romania!

Here I am, accepted into an amazing 4-week program in Sibiu, Romania. I will be given the chance to paint alongside artists from different parts of the world, travel through Transylvania, I will be able to spend the night in Dracula's castle and paint inside it! For a girl who has very little flying experience, let alone has only maybe been to two other states outside of California, this is insane! But there's always a catch. Though the residency program provides food, shelter, and transportation around town, I am responsible for purchasing my plane ticket to and from Romania (about $3k per one way), as well as $2000 towards the program.

Holy shit, how the hell am I going to get there?

With very little credit, collection agencies up my ass for student loans, and other debts, I could see my dream of this program quickly fading away. As of today, I have applied and been denied by every credit card or loan I thought I could try to earn for this trip to happen. So, I have decided to ask for help - from you. My friends, my family, from people I have never even met. It's a lot to ask someone to believe in you, but it means the world when they do. I want to pursue art. I want to be able to take this rare artist opportunity and run with it. It may seem like my goal amount is "wishful thinking", but with your help I believe it can be achieved. With select donation amounts, I have to decided to give you something in return as a thank you. However, you may donate as little or as much as you want - anything helps!

Will you help me follow my dream?
