Welcome, you've found me here on Patreon. My name is Andrea and I've been working in the interior design field for the past twenty years...So, I decided that at the ripe old age of 41 to drop all that (cold turkey) and start doing what I've always wanted to, and went to school for; illustration. What I want to do, more specifically, is science fiction and fantasy illustration. 
       All the work you see from me is straight paint/pencil/or other medium, no computers. Not because I hate them or anything I simply can't seem to put down the brush. I like the direct connection to the canvas/paper.
        My goals here are to build a following (not just to pay the mortgage, although that would be real nice), find other artists like myself (it gets lonely if you don't paint seascapes on Long Island), and help break into the illustration field (please, if you like my work spread the word!). So thank you already for your interest, if you want to see my work on the next gaming module or book cover; thank you. Thank you even more if you become my patron and help me pay bills (and get art supplies), and if you cannot become my patron then tell people how cool my work is and thank you for that.

Thank you,
Andrea Rhude

Goals
$32 of $1,500 per month
   In the attempt to become knows in the sci-fi and fantasy genres I will be running the convention circuit so I an meet other illustrators and you, the people who I want to love my work. To do that I will need money for hotel rooms, and travel, oh yeah food would be good too. You get the idea.
    The first con I have my eye on is Dragon Con. I showed my work there a few years ago and learned more in that one weekend than I did in four years of art school. October is when they open for submissions. So,come join me on this crazy ride and I might see you around.
