Hello! I am Arden Ellen Nixon, and I will be your charmingly awkward artist this evening. It is my sincerest wish for my paintings to find the beauty in the dark--as with my extensive "Make-Shift Angel" series--the silly in the sublime, and the humanity shared by the creatures and world around us. This would be my quest even if my paintings went unseen.

Thanks to the dubious wonder of the internet, my paintings are seen, and I want continue creating more to share with you. By becoming a patron, you would help offset supply and show costs so that I can bring my art to an even larger audience and dedicate more time to my craft. I want to improve for you as much as myself, and I know that not everyone has the space or budget for prints and originals. Indeed, I ran out of room for my favorites long ago!

I don't expect or assume anyone will contribute more than their feelings for my paintings, which is a gift unto itself. If you want to give more, I am humbled, as I always am when someone supports my art. Having worked my share of customer service jobs, I know well how hard-earned very little money can be. I've purposefully kept my pledge tiers low so that no one puts themselves out for my sake, and I sincerely ask that you take care of you first before thinking of me. My paintings and I will still be at ardenellennixon.com regardless.

Thank you for supporting my art, be it via donation, recommendation, or simply your shared thoughts. I paint for you as much as myself, and I am grateful for that connection.
