Welcome to my Patreon!
Hello my name is Heather Rison of Risonart and I'm an artist specializing in realistic contemporary figurative Oil paintings, Sculpture, and handmade wooden jewelry out of Salt Lake City, UT. I relocated here from Sacramento to attend art school in 2011- 2014. Ever since leaving school the vicious cycle from full time job to full time artist has been a struggle. I Currently work at a bronze sculpture foundry to make ends meet but I would love to be able to create art full time. With your help you can allow me to create art at a steady capacity and develop my brand!

This Patreon page is my chance to create more content for future shows, and to have more time to create while sharing everything I can with you as I go through my process. I will share behind the scene photos, progress shots and my process of creating, one-on-one help with your own artistic projects via skype, and much more. For more of my work, check out my social media below.

So what will your money get spent on? Mainly, it goes towards supporting my day-to-day business expenses such as paying for advertising, booth fees, submission fees, model fees, photography etc. Materials such as clay, canvas, wood, tools, casting costs, and much more. Educational via workshops, dvd's, books travel expenses to and from shows or markets. I could go on and on!

My current goal is to cast my many ceramic sculptures in bronze and that takes big bucks! Most galleries will only take bronze sculptures and its nearly impossible to create a body of work without having money up front. I have to sell what I already have cast in order to pay for the next casting. My hopes for this page is to create a steady flow of funding in order to get enough castings to get gallery representation. Any help will greatly be appreciated and don't forget you also get rewarded.

This page is a work in progress and I will try my best to post as often as possible! I also plan on offering video tutorials on how to sculpt the figure in oil base clays or water base clays. I am also open to suggestions on how to make this page better or more user friendly for you. I find it difficult to think of things that you the viewer would like to be rewarded, so please shoot me a message with any suggestions!
