I'm Melissa! I'm an artist in Chicago, and I'm so glad you're here!

Patreon is a space where you can come inside my Studio for a virtual cup of tea (or pint of beer, whatever) and be a part of my illustrations and projects.

As a Studio Member you have behind-the-scenes access to my art and work:
an in-depth look into my processes, what I'm learning, and what inspires me.

There are a few different levels of support for Studio Members, starting at $1 per month.
Your support makes all my artwork possible by allowing me to focus on creating.
The support I receive is put directly into the art that I share - in materials and equipment, as well as freeing up my time so that I can create more!

And of course, you can change or cancel your pledge at any time. I also post free public blog posts pretty regularly, and you can follow those here as well! 

I believe above all in Hard Work and Gratitude. And I'm so grateful for your support.
Whether you're a paid supporter, or following along - Thank you!!
