Hi! I'm Tania, a freelance author, illustrator, and knitwear designer. I draw dragons and create fantasy knitting patterns. 

What I make ~
  • Art, both digital and traditional, of dragons and fantasy creatures I've designed. You can find examples of my art on Deviantart. It usually takes me approximately 1-2 months to finish a large sized digital piece. I'm currently concentrating my efforts on my Dream of Dragons series, the first of which is A Dream of Flame and Fury.
  • Knitting patterns featuring fantasy creatures. I design patterns for scarves, shawls, cowls, sweaters and more! You can find my patterns for sale over on Ravelry. Most of my patterns are reversible and use a technique called double-knitting to achieve that effect. 
  • Novels for my characters to run amok in. I have approximately 15 work-in-progress novels with more brewing, all set in a full-fledged fantasy universe. 

Why Patreon?
Unfortunately, art supplies such as yarn and markers are expensive. With your support, I will be able to acquire more yarn and art supplies and upgrade some of my current equipment to create more projects and release more patterns and prints (and eventually even a book).

Patreon is a lot like Kickstarter, only instead of a single donation towards a large project you are giving continued support towards an artist's continued work. It gives creators extended contact with patrons, and helps the creator create more! 

How much should I donate?
The amount is up to you! With a minimum of $1 per month, you will help me acquire the supplies I need to keep creating knitting patterns and art! There are different rewards such as prints and raffles of test knits, check out the tiers below!

Why monthly?
I do a lot of projects across mediums, so I decided that monthly would work best. This way you the Patron get to see all of the neat stuff I'm up to and I don't have to worry about flooding you with new projects one month and having less the next. 

Can I stop my subscription?
Yep! Anytime you want, you can stop your subscription or switch to a different support tier.



New!
All backers at the $2 Pledge Level and up will receive monthly Coloring Book Pages! There will be 1-2 released each month.
