First and foremost, I am a fantasy artist, specializing in the realms of Faery and magical whimsy. I started making masquerade masks back in late 1999 and have developed artistically over the years since then, by trying out different materials and techniques, from paper mache to air-dry clay, all from my own original designs. Today I create a variety of items from masks and costume accessories, including elaborate floral crowns, fairy wings, and the random Steampunk themed creation, to Fairy and nature themed jewelry, handsculpted clay garden mushrooms, Greenmen, and intricately sculpted Faery Lanterns, and more.

My Goals for Patreon: With the support of my Patrons, my goal is to continue pushing myself in bettering my art and skills through purchasing better art materials and learning new techniques, while hopefully also paying my bills. I have so many ideas for amazing masks and sculptures and more, but they require better quality materials and time, which is something I can't afford to put into my art right now. Further, I am trying to create my own business and do my own marketing and branding, as I want to make this a very successful venture, through which I can support myself and my family. I want to eventually start traveling around the US selling my artwork in person as a vendor at Renaissance Festival events and being able to afford better materials and learning more advanced techniques would enable me to afford to put together a great booth for my business venture.

I'm very new to Patreon and while I'm doing my best to educate myself about how this whole thing works, through lots of reasearch, please be patient with me. :)     If you have ideas on what you think would make for cool Donation Rewards or have some suggestions on how to better do this or that, PLEASE let me know, I am all ears!!!  I want everyone here to be happy, whether you're supporting my art with $1 or $100 (wow!). :D     
-It's 'your' money and I'm just in awe that 'anyone' would choose to help me create more and better art!   
I'm a very friendly and approachable person, I love to communicate and enjoy having lengthy convos about all sorts of cool stuff. :) 
Being that I am so very new to Patreon, as I get this thing figured out and settle in and get comfy, I'll start changing stuff up, but I'll keep you all in the 'know' about it before I do it, so no surprises! :)

So, why should you pay me for my art?

You will be helping me to be able to afford more and better quality art supplies, which in turn enables me to create more and better quality awesome and beautiful art, for not only yourself, but also everyone else, to enjoy and have the opportunity to purchase, too. You will become a patron of Faery art, 'my' Patron. :D   Your contributions will also help to enable me to start creating videos of my art, which will include tutorials and reviews, and well, all of it! My sculpting and painting, my mask-making, what inspires me and sets my imagination on "fire", maybe read some of my poetry to you all every now and then, or even sing something, too!     I love to play dress-up with my costumes and do some creative fantasy makeups from time to time, as well, so I may occasionally add a video on that, too. Maybe at some point I'll do a 'Get Ready With Me' video Fairy-style as I get dressed up for a Renaissance Faire. We'll see! :D

How Patreon works is, you find an artist, or several, who really interest and inspire you, and you decide to be their 'Patron', to "back" or "support" their artistic projects, on a monthly basis for as long as you want, so you can continue to enjoy more of their art. And your support will allow them to have more time and more ability to create  even more awesome artistic content for you to enjoy on a regular basis. 
Despite the Donation tiers, you can choose how much, or how little, you want to donate and how often. Everyone is on a budget, afterall.  
Now, I have my donation schedule set for every time I create a new project, but YOU have the ability to set a monthly cap. This means that regardless of how many projects I may feverishly put out in the space of one month, you won't get charged for any more than your set amount. If your set amount is $20 a month, than despite whether I've posted 1 or 10 new projects that month, you will still only spend $20. And if I don't post anything in the space of a month, you still don't get charged, either. :)   And you can cancel your Patronage at any time you want or need to for any reason. 

I currently have a list of Rewards each Patron will receive per Donation amount tier, but I'm still working on this and those current rewards are subject to change, but don't worry, they'll just get 'better'. :)   If you have any suggestions on what you think are cool and fair rewards, please let me know.  Remember, I'm new!! :D

Goals
$2 of $25 per month
When reaching my $25.00 goal, I will be purchasing more polymer clay and better tools to help in creating more original fantasy art to not only share with everyone through photos, but also to put up for sale through my store.
