Hello!
So glad you have found my Patreon page! Now that your here, let me introduce myself. My name is Abranda Icle Flaminio (Yes I know it is a mouth full!) If you're interested, you can find more information about me and my work at www.abrandaicle.com.  I am an artist specializing specifically in the fantasy illustration and portrait art genres. 

What is my story?
I am an artist still searching for my purpose.  Art is an evolving and growing passion that takes an artist through many different developmental stages in their life. I used to sell my art full time several years back.  I created whimsical and romantic illustrations based on my relationships and feelings at the time predominantly in watercolor and graphite mediums. I created art centered around my oldest daughter and was just generally in a state of whimsically and spiritual motherly joy.

I got some licensing offers and due to some bad contracts and relationships, those went pretty poorly and started impacting my desire to create art I felt I no longer had any control over. My sales declined, my art output dropped and my level of joy broke. Because of the negative relationships, hurtful criticisms and false accusations around those contracts, I simply stopped creating.

During that time I met my now husband and had 2 more beautiful children who are my light, life, and inspiration. My 4 year old daughter appears to have a passion for art herself and I want to be able to inspire her to develop her talent and have the confidence to be whatever she wants to be despite the influences of the world around her. In doing that I am starting over and working to define myself and my work to be an example to her that she can follow her dreams even after being knocked down.
 
So why am I on Patreon?
I knew from an early age that being an artist was what I wanted to do. Having given up this part of myself for so many years has made a void in my identity. With Patreon support I'm hoping to get word out and prove to myself and my little girl that it is possible to follow and realize your dreams. 

What is my motivation? 
I want this to be my sole career. I want to wake up every morning and paint something! I want to bring my joys and my passions for fairy tales and romantic stories to life and share them with the world! And I want my daughter to see how following your dreams is possible and for her to never hold back and never be afraid of the world or it's judgements. 

What do I do?
Currently I am working in the digital genre and working to improve my skills there. But I miss my watercolors dearly.  Once I have a studio set up where I can keep my 2 year old son from taking my works and making them into his own masterpieces, I will likely go back to painting traditionally. I have been mainly focused on portrait art for 2018, but would like to define myself more as a story teller. I have always loved high fantasy art and truly wish to develop my style and branch out to create full illustrative projects.  I am still highly attached to whimsical and romantic themes, as well as spiritual mythology. And I want to start working on a much larger scale than I have previously.  Somewhere in the 16x20 or 18x24 range.

What am I currently working on?
I am working to find my true artistic voice. I want to develop a true sense of myself and my passions in my work that is definite and easily distinguishable as "Abranda's Work." 
For that I want to develop my skills through some project based works.
Below is a list of projects I plan to start in the next year:
1. Finish Birthstone series portraits.
2. Tarot Deck. 
3. Coloring Book of Fairies
4. Unique Card Deck/Game 

If you cannot Pledge but still want to show your support, you can also keep up with me on Instagram @abrandaicle and on Facebook.

Thank you for taking the time to read and for your support! I look forward to taking you with me on my journey!
