Hello there, and thank you for your interest! I am an illustrator, painter, and writer who is also armed with a camera and takes the occasional adventure.  
After more than a year of drawing, revision, and drawing some more, "Dragon Fancy", my first hand-drawn coloring book, will be released this month - and I could not be more excited! It's been a long haul, but my husband is compiling the files and I can't wait to show you this book in print form.
I've many other projects underway - "Off The Beaten Path" is a long and slow labor of love, born from a two month long backpacking adventure I took on my own in the summer of 2015. It is a book project that will show readers through literary accounts, paintings, sketches and photography, just what it is like to wander Scotland on your own and taking the more memorable approach of breaking way from the tourist treadmill, slowing down and noticing the littler things.   The supporters of that project will soon be beginning to receive their feather paintings from that journey. "Caledonian Waters" is a body of work also coming from that adventure, one which will be explained in an article in the near future. "A Well Traveled Road" is a somewhat similar project that will begin in Spring of 2018. Well, in all truth, that project is already begun - walking the 500+ miles that is the Camino de Santiago is not something you just wake up one morning and decide to do! Hopefully I will be fit enough by Spring to take that on without too much physical adaptation!
Please consider joining me on these journeys. I will be listing at least two coloring pages per month for digital download for you patrons who choose that tier, more if I can manage. Many of these are sneak previews from books that are in the planning, so you'll be able to take those pages for a spin and tell me what you think of them. I'm about to get a lot busier on here, so you'll ALL see the aforementioned projects under works and many others.  Thank you for your support!  
Rewards
Level 1, Supporter
$1 or more per month 2 patrons
Thank you for your support!  At levels 1, 2, 3, or 4 you think enough of my work to invest and help me keep doing what I do, and that means a lot to me, truly!

For $1, you get access to my patron-only content.  This can include:
  • sneak peeks at projects underway before they are shown anywhere else, paintings, coloring books, and more.
  • glimpses and articles of preparations for larger projects in the planning.  

As those of you who have followed me elsewhere know, sometimes these projects find me far away, on my own, doing things most folks just wouldn't consider doing!  
Level 2, Colorist
$3 or more per month 3 patrons
For your $3 monthly contribution, you'll get everything available at Level 1, and you'll also get two downloadable coloring pages each month. Some of these may be drawn at random and will vary in theme, but some of these will be pages from upcoming books or books in the planning - often never shown anywhere else online. So you'll get to be first in line to try them out! (for your personal use only, not for distribution or profit)
Level 3, ACEO Patron
$5 or more per month 4 of 20 patrons
ACEO, or ATC - art trading cards. At this tier, I'll mail to you a tiny hand-drawn or painted original, 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.  You'll get one each month that you're subscribed to this.  Got a request for imagery? I'll be happy to do that! This is in addition to what you'll get from the lower tiers.
Goals
$23 of $50 per month
Oh, I love setting goals!
If we hit this as a monthly, we'll celebrate. I'll produce a 4-pack coloring page collection, available at all levels.
