RyuNeko-Artz is creating Ecclectic Art and Florida Life Photos

We are a Husband and Wife team that Co-Creates all of our original art. We like to experiment in different mediums, including wood carving, oil pencil, digital paint, needle felting, sewing, wood craft and photography.



We currently live on the Gulf Coast of Florida. We work on the side doing resets, merchandising and trying to supply local gift shops with handmade wares while we care for the wife's elderly mother, so we have limited time to create new art. Our goal is to make a living from our art so we can quit our retail jobs to better care for my mother in law (actually be around if something were to happen) as well as be able to create new arts full time for everyone's enjoyment.



Our long term goal is to be able to get our art business going here by going to vendor events, selling prints/originals of our art and getting our art on items (such as t-shirts, wood signs, etc.) to local gift stores. After all, who doesn't like walking around with a big manatee or mermaid on their shirt or on their cup?  



Our end goal is to be able to support ourselves with our arts and crafts here so that the family is able to move to Northern Thailand. Why Thailand you ask? Well, we can live cheaper there, about half as much as in the U.S., so more time to focus on our art skills! AND they have amazing wood carvers to learn from which we are really looking forward to! With my mother in-laws health issues it is also cheaper over there for her to see physicians. Too, my wife and I have Advanced TESOL certifications. We are wanting to go over there and volunteer teach part time for orphanages and those in the hills who do not have the ability to go to the better schools. My wife is working on getting her Bachelor's Degree. Part of that is having to learn Thai, which we are able to take courses out there for.


Now we will have free content on here. We aren't trying to make it to where you have to pay to see anything we create. We feel that art should be shared and admired by everyone. That said, this will be included in the fee content: photos of finalized products we make, select photos of our trips to Disney, photos of Florida wherever we go (like the sunset above) AND we will be doing a weekly photo of the clouds entitled "What do you see?" for some added fun. Extra content will be added per tier for Patrons.


Any support you give us will go towards these goals:
1. Working towards generating a self-sustaining income from our creative endeavors.
2. Help us to support ourselves while caring for elderly parents.
3. To relocate to Northern Thailand to better afford being a full time artist, learn more wood carving and volunteer teach.
 

We hope you like our art and choose to support us in achieving our goals for the future!
We truly appreciate any support we receive!

Goals
0% complete
We are both working reset and merchandising jobs that are pretty inconsistent. With a steady $1000 a month one of us can cut back on our retail jobs, have time to make more art for you to see and maybe have a Q&A video answering any questions you have for us (so send in those questions and we will stockpile them for this particular case).

Reaching this goal we GREATLY, GREATLY appreciate your love and support. Without your help reaching this goal we would not be able to show you the content you enjoy.
