Hi Friends & Family -
I hope everyone is staying safe & healthy during these crazy times.
As with many businesses across the world, ours has been significantly affected by the economic shut-down, and we fear there is only a far-end in-sight.
It's hard to admit this, but we are hurting. Running a small art business is very hard. And while it appears on social media, from what our friends tell us, that we're 'killing it' - financially, we are not.
Bobby and I agreed last April we would pour our hearts and souls into this business full-time - and while we have been achieving so many wonderful opportunities, receiving great press, and building our client list - we are also, living month to month - as so many other families are.
This past week, the majority of our events, commissions, orders and classes were either cancelled or postponed. And, for good reason, many people are now solely focused on providing groceries for their families and also trying to figure out how to continue bringing in an income themselves. We get it, 'art' isn't something you need.
With that said, we are asking for your help (if you can). We have quite a bit of inventory we need to sell, and for friends and family, should you have an eye for any of the works in this post, please send us an offer privately - most likely we will accept so long as costs are covered.
If you've ever considered commissioning a piece from us, we'll work within your budget so long as we're able to make a little profit for ourselves.
If you're not able to afford anything at this time, even just a simple like, comment or share of our post/website is beyond appreciated: www.ChristinaTwomey.com.
Should our art not be for you, that's totally fine! But we do ask, if you can, to help out other small businesses, other artists, actors, comedians, waiters, musicians, trainers, part-time workers, the elderly, the sick, etc.
The impact is real, and it hurts.
If you've gotten to the end of this post, thank you for reading - we appreciate your support tremendously.
