You keep me company and bring some light into the dark, long nights of creating. You will receive from me:


Early access to content


Exclusive insights into my creative process (sketches, notes, diary entries, early versions of poems and visual art)


Exclusive insights into video material that doesn’t make it into the final poetry videos


mp3s of the spoken poems


regular prints of visual artworks in postcard size (ca. once a month*)



*I sometimes create a lot at once, and sometimes I have less creative phases. So in some months, you might receive two prints, and in other months none. But on average, it will be 12 per year.

About

Hello. I am Anna and I am very glad your path led you into my little universe.

Let me start with what's obvious right away: I need your help. That's why I'm here on Patreon.

I am a queer nonbinary chronically ill woman. I am a trauma survivor. And I am an artist.
I make things you can look at. I make things you can read. I make things you can listen to.

The emotions, memories, thoughts and ideas mingled in my center come out as poems, paintings, drawings, videos, recordings, and lately sewing projects and diys that I might document a little more in the future. I am truly grateful to have these tools, because otherwise I might just implode. They help me slowly deal with my chronic mental illness and heal my trauma. Because this is quite acute at the moment, all I can really do is keep creating and going to therapy.

But another essential resource for living in this world is, unfortunately, money. With my creations, I don’t make any money at this point in my life, but I am also too ill right now to work much in any other job.

One way of solving this situation is being supported by people who love what I do. I know there are a few and I hope to reach some more. I've been told that my art helps others, too.
And that's another reason why I don’t only create, but also send it out into the world for people to see. Among the other things I already told you, I consider myself an activist.
I try to make art that is feminist, body positive, anti racist, anti ableist, and intersectional. I also care about sustainability, animals and the planet. There is still so much for me to learn but I also know a few things that I can share with you. It would be wonderful if you wanted to join me on this journey.

It would mean that I can slowly start to earn money with the art that I create. It would mean that I could focus on my health with less pressure. It would mean that I could build myself a stable life.

If you support me, you will light up my world, and I will be eternally grateful. Your support could look like following my social media, liking, commenting and sharing my content. It could be feedback to my work, telling me how it makes you feel. Knowing that I reach somebody when I send my creations out there means the world to me.
And you could support me by joining my little galaxy here and becoming my patron. That would be incredible and quite unbelievable for me.

You can support me with as little as $2 a month and will receive some benefits for that like early access to my content, exclusive insights into my creative process and mp3s of my recorded poems. You will also receive a little postcard sized print of one of my artworks.

You can check out the different tiers and benefits here on this page. At the moment, I have many phsyical benefits like postcards, books or drawings that I will send you via mail. I will think of some more digital things than can reach you faster and won't clutter your home. But for now, these things are what I can offer.

My work includes but is not limited to
♥ drawings and paintings, and videos of creating them
♥ poetry in written form, and in spoken form along with visualizations as videos on YouTube
♥ educational intersectional feminist content in written form or as videos, sometimes in cooperation with my social organization queerlig (www.queerlig.de).
♥ I might start documenting future sewing and crafting projects and create vlogs/DIY videos
♥ I love music and I love to sing, so maybe, MAYBE, one day in the future you might get to hear some music from me, too.

You'll find my art on Instagram, on my website (www.annanave.com), and on YouTube.

I appreciate your support, in whichever form is possible for you. Please know that you do not have to become a patron, I love and appreciate you either way.

Thank you for reading this. Thank you for checking out my art. Thank you for considering supporting me. Thank you.
