I'm an independent artist and writer in Sudbury, Ontario (Canada).  I was born in Kirkland Lake (further north, but also in Ontario), educated in North Bay and Toronto... and I have lived all across Northern Ontario.

I write.
I paint.
I create.

It's really difficult to nail down what I do because I like to try my hand at anything at least once, and will stubbornly keep trying and learn until I get it right and then do my own thing with it.  I have been published, and I have a few different pieces of art I'm selling and currently working on.
 
My paintings are inspired by what I see around me and I love to paint local landscapes, space, and snippets of life.  My sculptures are inspired by the beauty of the human body and of nature with sculptures of people in various yoga poses, birds, horses, and other animals, as well as trees.  Sometimes I even mix the two together to make a painting three dimensional and tactile as well as visual.

Artwork and writing that I would never be able to do without the support of my fans and patrons, who are all awesome.  You are all awesome and have no idea how much your kind words and shares continues to keep me writing and creating.

Please note: While none of my sculptures are sexual they can sometimes be unclothed, similar to Michelangelo's most famous sculpture, as a study in the human form. In most cases, even when unclothed, any parts of the body that could be NSFW are creatively covered using angle, shadow, and posing to hide the overt nudity.

Hand assembled bookmarks. The bookmarks will be printed professionally on high-quality paper as part of marketing each novel as they come out. The tassells come from a reputable craft store--and the beads are made by another indie artist specializing in glass work.
Pledge $25 or more per month
I will use your name (unless you request otherwise) in a novel somewhere as a character's name.  I can't promise a recurring, or major, character will be developed around you... but stranger things have happened.
Pledge $50 or more per month
An autographed copy of any work published from this point on.
Pledge $100 or more per month
For pledging this much support each time a new novel or other work in print is released you will receive an autographed copy of that work as well as a hand assembled bookmark and your name in the acknowledgments... plus a very good chance a character may end up with your name.  I can't promise this character will be a major, or even recurring, character but somewhere down the line your name will end up part of one of my stories.

This level of support would help supply my paints, canvas, another other art supplies to keep me painting.  It would also help in keeping a supply of print books to have on hand for when people want to buy them off of me or a budget for gas to get around to art shows and to bookstores in neighbouring towns.
