Hi! My name is Nikki Burnette. I am a fantasy artist and have been professionally selling my work online and at shows since 2006. I draw and paint all sorts of fantasy art in watercolor, most of which contain a central female figure including witches, mermaids, fairies, steampunk, zombies, vampires and more. My female characters tend to be cute and sexy with just a touch of darkness!

Along with selling my original paintings, I also sell a variety of different products featuring my art. I make prints, stickers, magnets, bookmarks, greeting cards, pocket mirrors, buttons, keychains, postcards, notepads, ID holders, necklaces....I could go on and on! All of these products have been designed, created and handmade by myself in my studio, right down to the packaging.

I have an endless number of other paintings and creations that I would love to make, but I need your support! As a patron of my art, you can have a huge impact on helping me to grow my business.

What is Patreon?

Think of Patreon as sort of an ongoing Kickstarter campaign. Instead of backing a particular project, you are backing the creator and helping them to continue doing what they do best...creating what they love and what you love too!

Why am I asking for your support?


Running and growing my art business takes money...lots and lots of money! I'm always shocked at the expenses involved with what I do. When I first sat down to do this professionally, I thought to myself "some paintbrushes, paper, paint...maybe some envelopes to mail the paintings...good to go!" But the reality is art supplies, materials for products, printers, printer ink, postage, art show equipment, etc...all add up to be an obscene amount of money. That's why I'm asking for your help! I love doing what I do and want to continue to do so. Your patronage will help me buy the things I need to keep going.

One of the reasons I love Patreon is because it provides an awesome way for those of you who may not need or want a painting in your home to support my art. I've often had people come into my booth at shows and say that they really love my art, but don't need a painting, so they'd like to make a donation to support me instead. Now Patreon provides a wonderful way to make the same kind of donation online!

How does it work?

I'm asking for a pledge amount per painting I create. I completed 12 paintings in 2013 so expect me to complete 1-2 paintings a month. The paintings range in size from mini paintings (2.5x3.5") to much larger works (11x14").

You are charged your pledge amount at the beginning of the month and rewards are sent out as soon as the funds are received! Keep in mind that your amount charged will depend on how many paintings I finish during the month. You can change your pledge amount and/or cancel at any time. You can also "cap your pledge" to make sure you don't go over budget.

What do you get?


My gratitude first and foremost! I am so honored to wake up every day and make money doing what I love most. What an awesome job!! I couldn't do it without your support, so THANK YOU!

Beyond just my thanks, you also get lots of cool gifts! Just read all the details below. Every pledge tier has different rewards, so choose the one that's right for you!

Goals
$37 of $150 per painting
I desperately need a new scanner and I already have one all picked out. I just have to save up for it! When we reach this goal it will help me buy the one I have my eye on. As a thank you to everyone who has donated, I will give away a mystery box full of my prints and products to one random supporter!
