About Me
My name is Laura Charles and I am an illustrator, artist, and incurable doodler. My whole life I have been inspired by the books I read. I read all kinds of things - history, fiction, horror. But by far my favorite books were stories with heroes and swords or space/time travel. These tales would fill my head with dreams and it was my drive to express story visually that pushed me to pursue art professionally.

My Work
My current personal project is creating a series of works inspired by classic fairy tales. The end goal is to publish a book with the accompanying narratives I've created for each art piece or series of works. My working title is Of Witches and Maidens.

While I work on these pieces, I will be working primarily with my hand-mixed oil paints along with watercolor and ink sketches, exploring different techniques while pushing myself to improve my skills and hone my working methods.



Becoming a Patron
When you become a Patron you pledge any amount you want each month and in return I provide you with exclusive content only available here. You can cancel or change your pledge at any time and if you aren’t sure if you want to pledge yet, you can follow my public posts and make comments. My Patreon page uses 'Charge Upfront' so you will be charged as soon as you pledge, then the first of the month thereafter.

Your support means so much to me as a creator, I wouldn’t be able to do nearly as much as I do without your help.

What You Get as a Patron 
When you become a Patron you can support my art-making for whatever amount you like and in exchange I will enchant you with my paintings and whimsical doodles. Being my Patron is like joining a membership where you get an exclusive inside view of how I work, and what steps I take to get there. Sometimes making art is fun and easy, and sometimes it is messy and difficult and I will be posting all of that here in Patreon for you to peruse and chat with me about. I will also be posting all my new work for sale here first before posting it to the rest of the world to see.



IMPORTANT INFORMATION 
  • I aim to post once a week but sometimes it might be as often as 2 times a day
  • You can cancel your pledge at any time
  • You can change your pledge amount as needed 
  • Please make sure your address is correct

**TIERS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE**
As my Patreon page evolves and changes I may need to make updates to my tiers. Things that worked with only a few patrons may not function as well when there are more. I may add tiers, tiers may be discontinued and others may be edited to add or remove benefits. Please understand when this happens and I will give as much notice as I can to my Patrons when I decide to make a change.
