hi!

I am so excited you found my Patreon page! To learn more about how it works, there's a great, short video about it HERE, but basically, it's like an exclusive fan club where you get to pick how much you pay in monthly dues.

Each tier of membership includes its owns level of benefits and rewards -- things like art-in-the-mail, discount codes, first dibs, a digital commission each year for your birthday, naming rights to my firstborn child (jk on that last one) and so. much. more. You can cancel at anytime.

So, what exactly is your membership sustaining, you ask? Well, a couple things.

The Body Positivity Project
This May, I began working with local women interested in deepening their sense of body positivity by posing for my artwork and sharing their journey of self-acceptance. Each contributor is compensated for her time, and so far, I've collected the stories and likeness of over a dozen Nashville women and began turning each woman's story into a series of paintings and designs.

I plan to expand this project to include men and those beyond the binary, and display this body of work in an interactive exhibit.


Feeling My Feelings in Color

A few weeks ago my therapist challenged me to try painting my anxiety, and the experience was a transformative one. Working on a larger scale, I painted with all the energy I had. I slung my arms on the surface. I threw paint. Scribbled ferociously. Patterned tediously. I sought to physically embody and purge the felt state of anxiety.

The experience was cathartic and transformative. And now I'm interested now in exploring this deeper.


Other collaborations and ventures

I am grateful to be plugged in to so many wonderful creative communities. Alongside fellow poet and artist Nathan Spoon, I co-edit a literary arts journal for queer and neuroqueer contributors called Queerly. I empower people to lead more creative lives through two top-rated AirBnb Experiences, and enjoy enjoy traveling for artwork, taking classes by other artists, and participating in local art crawls.
Tiers
warm fuzzies
$5 or more per month

You know that warm feeling you get when someone randomly smiles at you in a warm, earnest, "I see you," kind of way?

That's what this is. Thank you for being here. For seeing me and lighting up my day.  To return the favor, I'm offering you:


  • Access to my exclusive Patreon content (first dibs on product launches, behind-the-scenes videos, photos, and updates you won't find anywhere else)
  • Monthly iphone-background art drops
  • 10% off any products on my website
  • ENDLESS LOVE
CRUSH
$20 or more per month only 29 left

Did you ever use to pass notes to your crushes at school? THAT'S WHAT THIS WILL BE. Except instead of passing notes, I'll be passing you ...exclusive art.  Every quarter. From me, to you, with so much damn love. 


So in addition to all the above tier rewards, you will also get stuff like small prints. Or a hand-painted card. You might get socks with my art on them or whatever fun, small project I'm testing out. These should all frame nicely (ok maybe not the socks) and make great, unique gifts. 


Limited to 30 patrons! Please note, quarterly goodies go out at the change of each season (3/20, 6/21, 9/23, 12/21). 


might be love
$50 or more per month only 15 left

Whoa! This is a huge one. Whether or not it's love on your end, know there's endless love on mine. You are a super-fan, and I will treat you as such. You get everything in the tiers above plus: 


  • 20% off discount code. 
  • Postcards from my random travels. 
  • Access to monthly Discord webchats where you can ask me anything about anything. Want a little lesson on figure drawing? Need a crash-course in color theory? Wanna talk pricing? For half an hour, my brain is yours for the pickin. 
  • A digital commission for you birthday. From me to you with endless love. Want a nudie of your lover? You got it. A digital painting of your dog? Done. An illustration of your favorite pair of blue Nikes? Yours. Please let me know what you want and your DOB at the beginning of the month prior to your birthday month, so on your birthday, it can magically appear in your inbox. 


Limited to 15 patrons.

Goals
3 of 50 patrons
When I reach 50 patrons, I will hire a local artist to help me make a video tutorial for you, and even better -- YOU'LL get to suggest and vote on what kind of content I'm teaching!
