I’m Jani - artist, activist and creativity coach.  I create resources to help anyone who wants to be more creative.

Using your art to create change is wonderful, but in today's complex world it can also be overwhelming and a little lonely.  To this end, I create resources to support artists in generating ideas, getting involved in the big picture, staying focussed and balanced, and making a real difference.

At the moment, I am making a set of creative oracle cards based on semi-abstract spiral symbols, rooted in pre-Roman British mythology and specifically the Goddess Brighid, Goddess of the arts, healing and song!  The cards have been designed and I am working with them to explore their meanings so that I can send them out into the world as a resource for those who need it.

About me:

I am an artist and coach and social entrepreneur. I am one of the founding directors of The Art House gallery café in Southampton (come for tea sometime!) and have been creating online resourses for people who want to reconnect with their natural creativity, since 2012.  I have recently refocussed, using my experience of environmental activism to support people who want to make change in the world.

What else do I do? As well as making art I am passionate about getting other people creating. My Patreon community get to access a lot of resources to get creative, too!

What I will use the money for and how much I need


Here's what I will spend the money on:

Web hosting and online services: 
My website and domain name, plus other online services, cost £165 (about $240 per year, with a few paid plugins to make the site run safely and smoothly.   I also use some automated online services like Hootsuite and Mailchimp to reduce admin and spend more time creating!

The rainbow workspace:  my time to spend on creating online goodies is limited to about 10 hours per week due to running The Art House, so when I do work I need to focus. In February 2016 I found a workspace in an old chapel in the middle of a cemetery (!) and since moving in I’ve found my ability to create has exploded. Yay! The rent on this space is just over £230 so this fund makes sure I can continue to pay this.

Facebook 
post "boosts": when I create a new blog post or resource, to make sure as many people as possible can see it!  

Print costs for the cards: 
the first run of cards will cost around £1200 to produce, and I need to raise the funds to do this.

Tech equipment:
My old revamped laptop, older smartphone and clunky PC do the job, but as I get more funds I would love to upgrade these to simplify the process of getting things created. It’s all about maximising my creative time and minimising how long I spend grumbling in front of a screen!

Thanks so much for being able to offer any support you are able to, and thanks for popping over and reading this page!


Yours with glitter and creative beams of sparkleness,

Jani
