My name is Allyson Proulx, aka Lefty Smudges.
I am a self-taught, professional, multimedia artist and writer currently located in London, Ontario.
In the next two weeks I will make my way to Dawson City, Yukon to attend Yukon School of Visual Arts for their foundation year art program. In order to help generate the financial support needed for this educational endeavour, I have started a Go Fund Me campaign. If you are willing and able, I would appreciate any generous donations you are able to make.
Yukon College recognizes that a greater understanding and awareness of Yukon First Nations history, culture and journey towards self-determination will help to build positive relationships among all Yukon citizens. As a member of the Yukon College community, [students] will be required to achieve core competency in knowledge of Yukon First Nations.
A secondary, yet equally as important way to support me on this journey would be to join my project Alone, together. Joining this project allows you to receive the artwork I create as part of my studies in the Yukon. Letter writing, and mail art has always been part of my practice, and a most tangible way for me to connect with my audience.
I look forward to hearing from you.
