Thank you for coming to my Patreon page. I am an artist currently living in northern California, and I'm asking for your patronage to help me continue to create and bring my work into the world. In return, I will be sending you monthly posts along with my gratitude. On this page you can sign up to become a subscriber or patron (see the area called "Tiers" to sign up). I chose to create this because I want to be in a sustaining cycle of connection with others, an open and life-giving exchange.

Artist's Statement: I am a particular flow in the greater stream of the body of life. What I feel, think, experience within, I also see around myself, in leaves, and trees, in oceans and stars. As above, so below. In knowing the wider community of life around me and the transformative cycles of growth and passing, I more clearly see and know myself, what it is to be alive, to be aware, to be a human, a mammal, a breathing being. When I allow myself to exist in this flow of life and awareness, I feel touched by magic, by forces and truths much greater than myself. And I am made whole.

I share this process and connection with life through my painting, photography and writing. That is how this flow of life I experience flows onward, to inspire, to breathe as it courses through other hearts and minds. Thank you for being a part of the flow of this life. 

What's Evolving: There are several new projects that I have in the works, including some writing/illustration that seem to be taking form as books (children's books?), as well as a deluge of inspiration for painting and writing, and some articles blending artwork and writing about nature and neuroregulation, and I am looking forward to bringing them to birth and sharing that process with you. Additionally, I will be doing an artist residency at St. Mary's College of Maryland this fall, and look forward to a dedicated, intensive time of making.

For samples of my paintings, photographs, and writing see my website (lifethatwantstolive.com) and Instagram (lifethatwantstolive). 

Lastly, and most importantly, I'd like to express my gratitude to all of my fans and patrons. Thank you!
