About

Hello!
I'm Jessie Smith and I'm an artist!

Art has been my passion and dream career ever since I was a little girl. Despite my mother telling me I would starve if I pursued the career of an artist, I grew up spending much of my free time drawing and always picked art classes as my electives in high school. When I was a senior in High School I was awarded the Sherry Langevine art award for my love and dedication to the arts.
But something even bigger happened my senior year. I became pregnant in the late summer of 2007, and delivered my beautiful daughter a week before my graduation! Being a young single mother brought about its challenges (especially living in a small town), and ultimately I felt limited in my options for a career path.

A couple years after graduating I began a tattoo apprenticeship in 2011. After 3 years I realized it wasn't the career for me. I decided to quit and pursue my true passion, fine art.

That was 4 years ago.

I've since participated in numerous craft fairs and art shows including my debut solo gallery show titled; "Ode to Art".
I've done anything and everything I can think of to get my name and artwork out into the world in hopes of generating self sufficiency.

The last 4 years I've been working as hard as I can towards financial independence as an artist and have been struggling. No matter how many craft fairs, art works sold, commissions completed, I never seem to accrue the amount of revenue needed to wean myself off of my day job. I'm fighting an uphill battle. Trying to find the time between work and family and still create has been nearly impossible.

My days off and the few hours before my evening shifts are spent busting my butt working towards my art goals while also trying to spend quality time with my family.
I want to change this dynamic in my life.

There are some who have been following my art closely for months, even years, and I'm sure they've been frustrated by the amount of time it takes me to create new prints, artworks, and commissions. The reason for this, isn't a lack of passion, drive, or ambition, but time.
This is ultimately what brought me to Patreon, the hope and dream to create a steady stream of revenue doing what I love most with the time to do it efficiently.
One of the oldest forms of supporting creatives is patronage!

Kings, popes, and the wealthy would all show support for the artists they loved by helping them financially. So those artists could keep creating without the shackles of financial burdens.
Granted I know most of my followers are not as rich as royalty, but I plan to make my Patreon affordable to all my friends, family, and fans who are willing to support me.
With enough supporters I know we can be successful in turning this dream into a reality!

Through your support you will help me:

Decrease/obliterate my dependency on a crummy day job!

Increase the time and funds I have available to dedicate towards creating the amazing art you love!

Become the world-renowned artist you always knew I would be

These are the things that I’ve been working towards but feel as though I never have the time to reach.
This is my life’s dream and ambition.
This is what I am meant to do with my life.

I appreciate your consideration in helping me on this journey towards artistic independence and welcome your questions and suggestions before deciding to become a patron.

With your contribution, we can accomplish this dream together!

Sincerely; Jessie Smith
