Welcome!  I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to share content with you!  I have so much to share about how I paint, why I paint, drawing tips, and where and how to find that inspiration when you life seems like it's going no where.  Believe me...I've been there and I know how hard it is to get started.  

I'll share ways to find inspiration to boost your own art, ways to grow as an artist spiritually and financially, how to improve your skills to wow your clients.  New content posted on Wednesdays most weeks as I get into the groove of getting you all new things to read, watch, and see every week.  Let's get started!

Goals
$357 of $500 per month
This goal would generate enough yearly income to create even more art.  I paint fast and could turn out so much work with this financial freedom.  Ways your donation would help would be to fund the book I'm writing empowering women, it would free up time for me to paint by covering childcare, canvases, frames,  painting supplies, financial support to edit and post content to Patreon, and a huge support for the arts to make and share beautiful work.
