Thank you so much for making your way to my Patreon page!
My name is Collette and I’m a full time freelance illustrator and researcher of mythozoology focusing mainly on dragons. I create my work in a verity of media including ink, graphite, watercolour an Adobe software.

Over the past few years I've been incredibly lucky and have been presented with some incredible opportunities. In 2012 and 2016 I travelled across China to gather and document local legends, this was an amazing experience, I met some amazing people and accumulated some fantastic folk tales. I'm so excited to share these stories with others through my illustrations.



I have some really big plans for a series of books I'm writing about mythological creatures. The first of which and my main focus at this moment is an art book called 'Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts', which is an illustrated guide to the mythical creatures of my homeland of Wales.



Thanks to the help of my Patreons I have been able to make this art book a reality, and with your ongoing support here on Patreon, you will actively be helping afford me the time to work on my personal projects and produce more art books like this one.
If you are interested in learning more about the Welsh Monsters Art book Project, or ordering a copy you can head on over to THE KICKSTARTER PAGE to find out more.



Becoming a Patreon of my art
will grant you access to my private feed, where you'll get to view my artistic process and watch thumbnail sketches and concepts transform into fully formed illustrations. You'll get exclusive behind the scenes access and you will be able to watch my works develop and have your say in what directions I take creatively during the process.
You will also you will get first dibs on any originals for sale and higher reward tiers will give you access to art rewards, tutorials and original artwork.




SKETCHES & ART POSTS

Insight into my sketchbook and process is available to all HATCHLING level supporters and above, I almost always post on weekdays and try to limit myself to around 1-2 posts per week:

Polls are posted as and when required, these are to help decide how my Patreon is run, what directions I take creatively and how you feel about new ideas and projects. The option to vote in Polls is available to all WHELP level Patreons and above. 

If you feel I am posting too often you can turn off your email notifications by selecting "Settings" from the drop-down menu on the top right. Scroll on down to "Email Settings" - there you can manage all email preferences. You will then only see my posts in the Patreon feed rather than your inbox.
