About

Hello! My name is Rhonda Bender. I am a professional miniature painter for companies including Reaper and Dark Sword. I’ve been teaching miniature painting classes for more than a dozen years at conventions, and I am the author of Reaper’s current Learn to Paint Kit series. For the past two years I have also been sharing tips, tricks, and deep thoughts related to miniature painting on my blog at birdwithabrush.com.

I wish I could do more on the blog. I have a lot of in-depth knowledge and practical how-to tips that I’d love to share with people! Actually, what I really wish is that I could do more than the blog allows, and more than teaching convention classes allows. I have ideas for videos, practical exercises, and a lot more. The issue is time. Writing in-depth articles and creating custom illustrations and painted figure examples takes time away from my paid work that I just can’t afford, and making videos would take even more time.

I’ve had people ask whether I had a Patreon, so I thought why not try it? Patreon is a wonderful opportunity to see if people are interested in supporting what I’m already doing, and whether they’d like me to expand on my teaching efforts. And if people are interested, Patreon is a fantastic opportunity for us to create a community and find the way forward together!

Initially I am offering two tiers. One allows you to support the blog if you like what I’m doing. The second gives you a PDF copy of blog articles with higher resolution photos and better presentation of information. I would love to add tiers with video demonstrations and exercises to practice, as well as tiers for personal feedback and critique, so please let me know if any of that sounds interesting to you!
