$124
per month
Welcome to our Patreon page! My name is Rafi Perez. I am an artist - a mixed media painter, sculptor, and tinkerer. I am joined by Klee Angelie, my wife. She is a jewelry designer, musician, and creative soul. We create all the time, having started this as a career a decade ago.


Somehow we have bumbled, succeeded, failed, and prevailed over and over in our art career, and all of it was a teachable moment for us. We have been full time artists for almost a decade and the journey continues. We started our YouTube artists tips channel as a way of sharing our experiences, tips, and art as full time artists... we share things we wished we had known when we started and answer your questions. 



Our first priority is to our art career, we would have nothing to share with you if that wasn't our main focus, but over that past few years we have enjoyed sharing our insights and don't want to say goodbye. We are hoping Patreon can help with that, and we want to make it awesome for our supporters.

Patron Of The Arts
$500 or more per month

A patron of the arts is someone who acts as a patron to or supports charities, organizations, and individuals that work in or concern the arts. This would be you, becoming a patron of our art. We would take your generous patronage and pour it all into creating bigger and more ambitious creative projects.


You get all the same rewards as the art collector, and nothing else really, but you will also have the status of knowing that to us you are like  Peggy Guggenheim,  Dorothy and Herb Vogel, the National Endowment for the Arts, Queen Elizabeth, Charles Saatchi, and others throughout the centuries who have supported artists in ambitious undertakings and gripping works of art. 


Artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, William Shakespeare, Michelangelo, and other creatives have all relied on patrons in their time to keep things running smoothly, and add to the financial capabilities of the limitless imagination of the artist.


You would be that to us... We will always be grateful :)


We look forward to growing a relationship with you and having you be a big part of our art career. Listen, you will get rewards, but it would be too personalized to list, it will be based on our relationship with you.
