My name is Kaitlyn Hatch and I'm a polymath. Which is to say I have many skills and interests and an insatiable curiosity.
I also write—be it fiction or non, or a blog post—I write to change the world. To give people something to really think about. I publish my own books and have kept a blog in one form or another since 2008.
And finally - I make a lot of art. Mostly my art is influenced by and supportive of my Buddhist studies. It's a contemplative practice, and one I enjoy sharing with the world.
I pay for all my supplies out of pocket—including: a design programme subscription (That I use for print layout and cover design of books and sound editing of my podcast), pens, pencils, sketchbooks, paints, website registration, and podcast hosting. I also do all my own marketing and promotions and project manage all this stuff. Oh, and I work with a lot of other starving artist types who I would love to be able to pay for the services they offer, instead of always working in trade.
Emotionally and spiritually, this is fulfilling work, but it is a lot of work and work I wish I could do all the time.
If you are struck by any of the stuff I do and would like to encourage and support it, it would mean so much to me if you became a patron.
Thank you so much!
Oh, and please do say 'hello' on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and check out my website.
