About my art: 
I work in watercolor, draw comics, do performances, make music, and moonlight as a blacksmith and metal caster. I've been working on art for at least an hour every day, no matter what.

I'm also a member of a collaborative performance group called Glitter Chariot. We use rock/pop/country covers and performance to explore themes of love, loss, heartbreak, and relationships in a gallery setting. Many of my watercolors originate from Glitter Chariot shows. You can learn more about us, see performance stills, and watch our music videos here.

Check out more of my work at my website here!

How this site helps you help me:
I know what you're thinking. Every week, you look into your CSA and wish it was full of my art instead of vegetables. Dear reader, I'm with you! There is now a solution!

The same way joining a CSA program guarantees farmers an income to invest in making vegetables, here you sign up to support me making work each month. You pledge to give me a certain amount every month, and knowing I can count on that revenue, I take fewer shifts at work and spend them making art, which you are in return privy to. 

You can also make one-time contributions and purchases, just select your perk and cancel the recurring payment after it processes the first time!

Why I can't just "Get a(nother) job!":
Okay, True Confessions: I'm really private about it, but it's probably important to mention that though I'm naturally unstoppable and very stubborn and proud, I have had Lyme disease for about six years and have struggled pretty consistently with it the past six months. It is SO boring and I hate talking about it, but it's relevant in that it means working takes a lot out of me; so in addition to just allowing me to focus on art, every $12 I make here is an hour I can spend making work at home instead of at a job that hurts my body. (Please note that this is a very private thing for me. I only mention it because it's relevant to this campaign. I'm not unwilling to have real live jobs. (FACT!: I also have a real live job!) 

I'm working to incorporate even more art into my daily practice. You can help!

New Work Wednesday Studio Peeks
Endless thanks, and a biweekly email on Wednesday of my #newworkwednesday work in progress to see a sneak peek of what I've been up to in the studio. 

#NewWorkWednesday is a concept I came up with for people to share pieces they've been working on in the past week. Posts are made on Wednesdays, to provide mid-week encouragement and camaraderie to those of us that struggle with incorporating daily art into our daily grind. There are currently 154 people in my social network alone posting updates on creative work of all kinds. Tag your work #newworkwednesday to participate!

Goals
$0 of $100 per month
I'm currently working with whatever I've got. Higher quality supplies would produce more professional results. If my pledges total this amount, I will buy bigger, nicer paper, higher-grade/more vivid watercolor cakes, and nicer pens, and would be able to replace them as I run out.
