My name is Aria and I am a full time independent artist living in Colorado in a studio filled with dreams, bottled bones and monsters. <3
Patreon is a little bit like an ongoing Kickstarter only instead of supporting one big project for a one time fee, you are supporting a bunch of smaller projects on an ongoing basis.
Why am I doing this?
Two big reasons. I have been doing art full time for about four years and I have worked pretty much non-stop to sustain this crazy life and build a career. This has often meant putting some of my most personal work and more gravely, self education and practice aside in order to focus on the projects that make up the majority of my income. With this Patreon, I am determined to stop making excuses, and start applying more study, and practice to improve my craft and push for my most personal, well rounded work and I want to share that process with you in the most raw, and honest way I can beyond what I am able to share to my other social media.
In addition to wanting to educate and push myself, I also have a deep love of teaching and wanting to help others so I am hoping that with this Patreon, I will have the time to finally create technique videos, video podcasts filled with advice and more helpful posts than I am currently able to justify the time for. I feel that this Patreon is a chance for all of us to improve our work and ultimately, ourselves so that we can live a healthier, more contented lifestyle.
I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the years. I truly could not do it without all of you. I rely on the incredible kindness and interest you all have taken in my worlds in order to sustain what I do and I could not be more grateful for all the gifts I have received.
