Raven Rivers is creating Art and Witchcraft

About Me: Hi there! My name is Raven Rivers. I'm a classical artist - meaning I only make art with traditional mediums and no technology. I make art with oil paint, watercolor, (sometimes) acrylic, pen, charcoal, and pencil. It all depends on my mood and how I'm wanting it to look. I started painting (20+ years now) when I was very young with my grandmother who was also a watercolor artist. My dad, my big brother, and a few other people in my family are also artists.
   I also have been practicing witchcraft since I was 10. I was taught formally, but also taught myself, and am still learning something new every day. Over all, Im eclectic with my practices, but I focus most on Norse and Celtic traditions, and identify most as a hedge witch and green witch (yes, there is a difference).
   You may find me adding other things on here now and then, such as poetry and chapters of stories Im working on.
What you'll find here: Lessons about different pagan pantheons, spells, divinations, rituals, etc. Think witch school. Youll also find the same sort of stuff, but arts and crafts related. I'll show techniques with painting, drawing, and make art projects for you to do yourself and share with everyone! Youll also be the first to see my story chapters and illustrations and be able to critique and help with ideas.
What you will get: By becoming a Patron, you'll recieve discounts on my original art (should you be interested in purchasing), one free print a month of your choosing, Q&A, personal palm and card readings, in depth lessons in arts and witchcraft. Youll also get art projects to try at home and share with your friends, product reviews and suggestions, and be the first to read the chapters of my book before its published (non-patrons will only see the first chapter).
How I will use the money: Money earned through subscriptions provides me with the resources to pursue bigger art projects. Like any business, there are overhead bills. When I make profit, it allows me to afford things for my business that I couldn't before: pays fees for competitions, vending spots, cost of traveling to out of town shows, covers the cost of prints, and buy better and more art supplies, and better photo and video equipment for posts! Publishing books also costs money, and its a dream of mine to publish AT LEAST one. With your help and support, I can finally reach my goals as a witch, as an artist, and as an author.
THANK YOU! My goal in life has always been to uplift and inspire others through my creations. By becoming a Patron, it's not only a compliment that you enjoy what I do enough to donate your money to allow me to continue to create (because being a starving artist IS a real thing) it's also a BLESSING. Knowing that people want me to keep going and pursue my dreams the best I can encourages me to strive even harder. The more I create, the more I can give back.

With my earnings, I can afford to get a camera for photos and videos, as well as a laptop that can keep up with what Im trying to do! This way, I wont have to dip into my own saving and will be able to buy more art supplies. What goes out, comes back 3 fold! When you my goal is reached, youll be sent a goodie bag of art and trinkets. Everyone's will be different!
