About Lucie Shearer

Hello there! I'm Lucie Shearer, an artist, illustrator, muralist and designer, working full time from my home studio here in Columbus, Ohio. 

I've been painting since I was a child and I have been focused on my art career since I was about thirteen. I went to the Columbus College of Art & Design and received a BFA in Illustration, and since then I have pursued the dream of a fully creative life. I spent most of my 20's just figuring out how to get by on a day job and moonlighting my art career. In 2019 I established my small business as an LLC, and in the summer of 2020 I made my freelance work my full-time job. 

If you're on this page, you've probably seen my work already. I create surreal, fantasy works that discuss themes such as love, intuition, emotional exploration and human connection. I love symbolism and metaphor - every piece tells a story through the use of body language, composition, light, and symbols. I tend to include feminine figures, hands, the moon and stars, moths and other winged creatures, water, and unusual glowing objects in my illustrations. Figures will often have misplaced pieces like a game of Jenga. My intent is to make you pause, and wonder, what is going on? What does this mean? And why does it speak to my heart? I want my work to create an experience of connection and understanding on a level beyond verbal language. 

This Patreon serves as a place for friends, family and fans to directly support my career in a small but meaningful manner.  This platform gives me a few things.
1. Connection - It's kind of cool to have an exclusive club of art lovers, right?! This is a space where folks who *really* connect with my work can connect with one another. I can learn more about what the work means to you and I have the opportunity to chat with you directly! 
2. Inspiration - Your enthusiasm is incredibly motivating. My favorite moment in the life of any painting is the one when a persons face lights up upon seeing it. So knowing you're ready to see what's next has me wondering what's next too! 
3. Peace of Mind - Having a small, consistent fund like this allows me to know that what I do matters. I can have more focus, and not chase after a day job or random, meaningless gigs just for the paychecks. I have clarity in my focus and more time for *this* work. Work that brings people together and positively impacts the community.

Each dollar supports my creative business. For now, I am more or less saving these funds to go towards a new studio space. I love the studio in my home, but it has it's limitations. I'm restricted to about half of a small bedroom in our home, so it barely has room for the computer, art supplies and shipping materials, let alone my mural supplies. I'm hoping to save enough to begin renting a local studio space in the spring of 2022. 

Every dollar is incredibly valuable. I appreciate you so much for your support in pursuing my dream. I hope to return the favor to you by becoming a better artist and business owner, creating more meaningful and beautiful work, and bringing you with me on my journey.

xoxo

Lucie
