Every month I will endeavour to do the following, but with the freedom to mix things up a bit, and occasionally do some slightly different posts, with the overall aim to have 3-4 posts a month.
 
• I will add you to my “close friends” on instagram, and will share behind the scenes content on there 2 or 3 times a week
• once a month, I will share my sketchbook(s) or artwork for that month in a "behind the scenes" post, talking you my process, thoughts and any breakthroughs (I hope!)
•  I will do a materials “deep dive” video or post once per month.
• a monthly art prompt or theme for the month to inspire you for the month and share with the rest of the Patrons on this tier. Or a process video with a time-lapse video.

About Ella Beech illustration

Hi!

My name is Ella and I am a full time artist and illustrator living in Cambridge, UK. I invite you to join me on my creative journey into the weird and wonderful world of art and illustration creation.

I left my job in Children's Publishing in September 2019 to start a new life as an artist and illustrator. I now live a life much closer to the life I dreamed of. I make and sell paintings and artwork, I do creative mentoring and I am studying for and MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. 

My background is in the world of Children’s Book Publishing, where I worked for over 20 years - as Head of Design and Art Director for 7 years, and as Head of a Pre-School and Novelty Book imprint for over 4 years.

I am on a journey of rediscovering the relaxed, creative, intuitive me, who can explore, create, grow, meander, get lost down creative alleys, and find my way back (with luck!). I am constantly changing, growing and adapting, so I can’t promise you predictability, but if you want to dig a bit deeper into your creativity, I'd love for you to join me on the ride. 

I make 3 or 4 fun, meandering, creative and hopefully sometimes inspiring videos per month. 
• Materials Deep Dive - each month i take a closer look at one art material, and geek out over it, look at the different ways it can be used, and film myself while I do it.
• Behind the scenes catch up - a monthly look at what art I have been making for the month.
• A process/time-lapse video of me making a piece of artwork or an art prompt.
 • sometimes I make other content and stick it on just for fun or because I have got obsessed with something!

Here are a few testimonials from my Patreons:

Ella’s Patreon is the best investment I made in my art, and in myself last year. She is a brilliant, generous, and incredible artist, and the inspiration and materials shared through her patreon are inclusive and accessible whatever level you are. I’ve experimented more, had the courage to share more within the online community, and have received brilliant advice from Ella in person. Plus it’s AMAZING value - in summary; Ella’s brilliant and her Patreon will be the best gift you can give yourself in 2021. (Ellie, 2021)

I’m so glad I joined Ella on Patreon, as an illustrator I love to see how other creatives work. Ella provides both inspiration and motivation plus time geeking out over art supplies and textures. It’s like sharing a studio with a warm supportive talented friend. (Soni, 2021)

I’m really benefiting from being a “patron” of Ella Beech via Patreon. She is a talented professional, and her work is glorious. But more importantly, she’s a great communicator- natural, inspiring, informed and encouraging. She puts out a lot of valuable tutorials, sketchbook tours and materials reviews as well as general and fun views into her life. Excellent value for all she provides. If you are an illustrator or creative person interested in improving your own drawing/sketching/painting I can’t recommend Ella highly enough. (Kate, 2021)
