Hello and welcome!

Who am I?
My name is Alexandra Rena, an illustrator who is entirely in love with history, folklore, and ancient gods. Legends--and the lessons and inspiration contained within--are what drive me, and what I aim to communicate through watercolor and ink. For the longest time, I worked with both mediums separately, with either watercolor paintings or ink drawings. Recently, I began to combine the two for deity portraits, as seen in the collage below.


Why am I on Patreon?
Much of my journey as an artist so far has consisted of struggling from event-to-event, trying to find a show that fits my style that is within an affordable driving time. During this period, I put so much focus into shows that my vision got lost along the way. I strayed from those things for which I have so much passion: ancient cultures, and their gods and legends. In 2016, I reconnected with my path, and now have a clearer vision of what to create and where to go. With your help, I hope to grow as an artist and better connect with my community, and together we can reach those goals.

What is Patreon and how does it work?
Patreon is a place where you can support your favorite artists and the work they create by pledging on a monthly basis. Unique content is created and delivered to you for each month pledged. There are a variety of pledge tiers offering an array of rewards. Have a look at the rewards on offer, and select yours!

You can cancel, increase, or decrease your pledge at any time. For more information, check out Patreon’s FAQ!

What do you get out of my Patreon?
Here you will get a deeper look into the process of how I create, what goes on behind the scenes, and input and discussion on what to tackle next. This will be in the form of in-depth posts on works-in-progress, sketches, research notes, and polls. In addition to these, tutorials, coloring page downloads, sketch requests, and the Monthly Print Club are also available. My goal is to create 1-2 illustrations per month, and release 1 coloring page per month. I will be posting 2-5 times per week.

Thank you for stopping by!
