My name is Billy Mark, and I am an artist who works and lives in Detroit. This patreon page will host works in progress, writings, songs, poems, and new work in general. These days I am exploring unusual liturgies, voice and movement, and the African roots of monasticism.

For the last four years, I have been a part of an artist collective called ONE, a group that has made a space for artists to explore God through art and art through God. A few of these artists and I also host Clairmount Studios, an inter-generational, multi-disciplinary, arts house in our neighborhood. (what does it mean to try to be a good neighbor and a good artist at the same time?)

A few other artists from ONE and I are currently exploring an alternative to the art market. We call the practice, creative tithing. A creative tithe is 1% of a person's monthly income given to an artist, and all the work created is given as a gift.

Thanks for coming by the page!
