I am a mythic artist and author working in a variety of media. I identify as a 'mythic artist' because a lot of my work is inspired by mythic themes: faeries, mermaids, myths... I also enjoy painting flora and fauna. My art style is realism, influenced by Mucha and the Art Nouveau movement.
My primary medium is watercolour, but I also create using graphite, pen & ink, and digital paint (for this I use Corel's Painter software). Sometimes, I create a drawing using graphite or ink and then colour it digitally, which I suppose means I could call it 'multi-media' :) I have done some small-scale sculpting, and have created jewellery 'art' as well. Mostly, though, I just draw and paint and write.
I have always liked the idea of patrons - in the traditional sense of the old masters - people who enjoyed the art enough that they would support the artist financially just for the joy of watching them create (of course, those patrons often got first dibs on the creations, as well).
Your support will allow me to purchase supplies for my work, and maybe even provide me peace of mind when it comes to keeping bills paid - being a freelance artist means you are your business, and there are expenses associated with being in business - business licenses and taxes (still gotta contribute to social security and medicare), fees associated with showing and selling the fruits of our labour (including, but not limited to, booth or table fees, travel, and room & board). I currently attend about 1-3 shows per year.
Thank you for considering supporting my dream! Even if you choose not to pledge money for it, I do hope you will follow me on my artistic journeys by checking in on my Official Web Page and/or following my Facebook Page.
