Thank you for visiting my Dwayne's World Patreon website.  I appreciate your support and your time and I hope you enjoy what you find here.  A little about myself - After finishing college at New Mexico Military Institute I began a very rewarding career with the United States Army which would eventually take me around the world and back, all with a duffle bag on one shoulder and a camera strap on the other.  It was a great time in my life - I knew what my mission was and there was no question  that I was very happy with it. I spent those years either wearing the uniform of a soldier or, after leaving the military, working with soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors as an Information Technology Support Technician and felt a great sense of accomplishment, always.

Two years ago, while stationed at the United States Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center just outside of Bridgeport, California and working as the Base Incident Manager and Senior  Information Technology Specialist, I suffered a severe brain injury which has led me down the road of early retirement.

Retirement among the Sierra Nevada mountains, especially for any type of artist, is, in my opinion, a dream come true. To wake up to these mountains, and all they have to offer, every day, is more than most could hope for. Having spent many years apart from the scenery I loved as a child, and now being able to return to it permanently, I realize what it means to have this treasure and, in that realization, I have developed at least one major desire which would be to share this beauty with anyone and everyone who wants to experience it, no matter where they may be.

I have worked hard to put together an online presence through FacebookInstagramEtsy and my own personal site but, until I came across Patreon, I did not have a solid solution to address my desire. Recently, while photographing bears near Lake Tahoe, I met a man who told me about Patreon. He was so enthusiastic about it that once I returned home I had to research it and I immediately understood his excitement. The basic idea of patrons providing support which allows an artist to create and, in return, the patron receives that art as a way to repay their pledge to the artist. This idea has kept arts alive throughout the ages and now, with access to internet and social media platforms like never before, this ancient idea has been refreshed and updated but at the same time it has also kept the same basic principle and goal.

I am excited to see what lies ahead with Patreon and my work and I hope you are too.  I invite you to look around and I'm sure you'll not only understand my excitement but you'll want to join that excitement and help keep artists such as myself doing what we love to do.

Greeting cards are some of my most popular items and once you see them I think you'll understand why!  For your monthly support of $5 you will receive one professionally printed greeting card with a unique and custom image design featuring beautiful landscape or exciting wildlife for you to share with family and friends, send them as thank you cards or keep them for yourself to admire and enjoy daily.  Along with this package you will also receive one of my custom designed postcards which is great for a quick note to say hi to that someone special.  A great package at a fantastic price and on top of that the support you are providing is priceless!
The Bookmark Card and Greeting Card Club

Bookmark Cards and Greeting Cards - the best combo out there because you don't have to choose between the two!


For your support of $10 a month you will find an envelope in your mailbox with these two gifts ~


First, a professionally printed and personally designed greeting card which stands apart from any other you have seen before, professionally designed and printed, featuring beautiful landscape or exciting wildlife for you to share with family and friends.


Next, you'll be delighted to find one of my custom and very creative Bookmark Cards.  These cards offer a very unique yet simple design which allows for a detachable bookmark to be included with the card.  I personally design each card with many of my landscape and wildlife images and they are professionally printed on high quality card stock.  The detachable bookmarks come with inspirational and motivational quotes accompanied by even more of my imagery.

As an extra bonus I will always make sure to include one of my popular postcards for you to keep or share.

The Bookmark Greeting Card Club

Greeting cards have always been a popular and preferred way to send a quick note to someone special but with the introduction of my "Bookmark Greeting Cards" the normal greeting card has met its match and once you have one of these beautiful cards in your hands you'll wonder why everyone doesn't use them!  A very unique yet simple design provides a detachable bookmark to be included with the greeting card.  So now, when you send the thoughtful gift of a card to that someone special they will also receive the added pleasure of a specially designed bookmark.  I have personally created each card with many of my landscape and wildlife images and they are professionally printed on high quality card stock.  The detachable bookmarks come with inspirational and motivational quotes accompanied by even more of my imagery.  For your monthly support of $15 you will receive two Bookmark Greeting Cards and an added bonus of one regular greeting card to share or keep for your own personal enjoyment!  It's the perfect greeting card package!
