Some say that Zoë was sprouted in the swamps of Florida, destined to be a story crafter. As a child she gripped the whittled sticks left behind from campfires and used their charred ends to tell stories that no one would be able to decipher for years to come, but it was undeniable that she found meaning in the scribbled markings left behind on the trees. These markings can still be found, though few dare to venture into the mysterious murk and wilderness that is her homeland.

Others say that she was born to a life of science fiction and books. As she grew her insistence that just because you grow old does not mean that you have to grow up, lead her to a life in pursuance of creating stories and mystical artworks.

But that would be silly.

Now, she has integrated into human life but has refused to forsake her roots of the wild, of the fantastical. She clings to them by crafting stories, paintings, anything she can to bring back the rush of the swampland magicks that spawned her imagination.

Oh hi! My name is Zoë Mikel-Stites and you have stumbled upon my Patreon page. Welcome! I am an independent writer and visual artist who focuses on science fiction and fantasy. The genre of sci/fi has been a deep love of mine since I was a kid and creating art that finds the beauty in the strange, dark and magical is a drug I'm never willing to give up. Supporting my Patreon gives you access to my patron only feed, digital downloads of my completed artwork, and access to rough drafts of my stories and chapters. 

If you haven't supported anyone on Patreon before, it's like an extended Kickstarter, where you select a tier for financial support and receive rewards corresponding to that. You can also choose to make a custom monthly donation, and choose precisely how much you would like to give. Either way, thank you so much for reading my page, and I hope I get to see you in the comments soon.

Achievement Unlocked: Art Stream!

I would love to be able to share my painting process through twitch, but that involves a few pieces of equipment that I don't have at the moment. The cameras and software I need would make it possible for you can see me and the art, and have a decent quality stream.
