Hello, I'm Clover Brown. I am currently working on a series of small-format paintings and have recently launched an art subscription/ writer's workshop called Post by Clover which kicked off in September 2015. You can read about it here: cloverbrown.com/post-by-clover/

This service is a prompt and invitation to delve back into sending mail and connecting through keepsake materials.



I send subscribers to Post a monthly hand-painted piece of art, prompts for writing, beautiful, matching postage and postcards, along with other surprises based on the month's design. Aside from Post, I am also working on a zine (yay!) and pay the rent with commissions and freelance illustration work.

My work is magical, whimsical and playful. I'm a traditional artist using watercolor, pencil and paper to make paintings and illustrations.
_____________________________________________________________
As a visual artist, one of the hardest money blocks for me has been new products. Etsy has gotten my followers really used to seeking out artist-made reprints of work, which is costly to produce, package, ship and sustain. As my Patron, your investment goes into funding my current project as well as my growth; be that in studio costs (art supplies), production (making new goods like stickers or prints), and artistic innovations (learning new things!).

I'll be posting my small-format paintings from Post, the drafts and the finished monthly series, as well as other projects that pass through my studio space.

I'm so apprectaive of the support of my Patrons to help me continue to draw, paint, and tell stories. Thank you!

$84 of $95 per month
In the effort to network and grow, I am looking beyond my small plot of land in Portland, Or. Your contribution helps me to get closer to a yearly membership to SCBWI, which is a fantastic resource for artists and illustrators looking to persist and thrive in the competitive market of children's book illustration. Thank you! www.scbwi.org
