Maranda Cromwell is creating Expressive Animal Art!

Greetings! 
My name is Maranda Cromwell, and I am a freelance artist working in the Pacific Northwest, specializing in expressive, surreal, and off-the-wall animal art. My art is an act of self expression, depicting my complex emotions and reactions to my life. It is an act of exploration, aiming to understand and accurately portray my animal subjects. And it is an act of reverence, paying respect to the natural world through art. 


Why Patreon?
I've been making art ever since I was small, but now, my dream of becoming a full-time artist is closer to reality than ever. Patreon helps me pursue my career. With your help, I'm able to bring the world more and more of my unique portrayals and views of animals. I delve deep into symbolism, biology, and dreams, blending the real and imagined world to create unique and engaging animal art. If I had it my way, I'd do nothing but art-- but alas, I still have bills to pay, and so I rely on a day job to stay afloat. What you will do, as a Patron, is allow me more freedom to cut back on my day job so that I have more time to sketch, study, draw, paint, make prints, research shows and fairs to attend, and record videos. 



What You'll Get! 
Each tier gains you access to exclusive goodies only available to Patrons. Even at the very first tier of only $2 a month, you'll get to see material not posted to any other platform, including WIP shots and sketches. There are more perks, too! With every tier comes better and better rewards, a few of which have cumulative rewards, my way of saying thank you to those long-time supporters. You can even get custom art every month in the mail if you support at a higher tier! 



Thank you!
Thanks for stopping by. Even if you just end up following the feed and not pledging, I appreciate your interest and support! I hope you enjoy the content here. See you around, pup!
