I am a creator of words, of photography, of art, and have been for most of my life. I write screenplays, books, and articles; I take photographs that I sell as prints or canvas art, and some I turn into unique pieces of digital art. In other words, I am a THRIVING artist!

To represent the word THRIVE, I chose my favorite flower - the tulip - as my signature image and account theme. Each of the reward levels has been named for a different kind of tulip, and as I locate each one in my travels or daily explorations, I'll add an image to each level. 

What does a thriving artist do? What does it mean?

I can’t NOT write. I can’t NOT create. I am meant to create.

So here we are.

I’ve joined Patreon looking for the freedom to write and create on a more regular basis, for the opportunity to share my creations, whether in word format in screenplays and books, or in visuals like photographs, artwork, and eventually videos, to share my creations with an exclusive community – YOU! I hope you’ll love my creations as much as I love creating!

Friends – and even new acquaintances – have called me a visionary. I have big dreams and I love to help other people seek after their own dreams, so the word “conduit” has been used to describe me, too. Patrons give me the freedom and opportunity to be a better conduit for my art and for the art of others.

Content that I'll share here on Patreon includes exclusive blog posts, book chapters of works in progress, photographs and art created from those photographs before they're sold to the general public, screenplay scenes, behind-the-scene glimpses, and more.

I invite you to become one of my patrons, to walk alongside me as I seek all that life has to offer. The journey promises great fun and a lot of creativity, and we’ll discover together where our big dreams can take us! 

Thank you for being a patron of the arts!

Goals
$1 of $500 per month
When we reach the $500 per month goal, I'll begin producing short videos to share with patrons. The content of those videos will be decided by the patrons as we grow. The videos could be behind-the-scenes outtakes, exclusive on-location videos, or perhaps a teaching or motivational video - maybe even with a guest or two.
