Seed

reward item
$2.50
per month
In the seed tier you'll receive a warm fuzzy feeling inside each time you see one of my drawings, because YOU helped to create them with your support. 

As a seed you'll gain access to the patron-only community, where you'll be able to see secret info about upcoming projects before anyone else does, as well as behind the scenes footage of my studio, my artistic process, and of whichever permaculture property I happen to be living in. This includes adorable baby goat footage, and you'll see me lose my mind halfway through illustrating the book Costa's World.

To make it extra special you'll have access to 10 of my most popular images as high res digital downloads for you to save, print or share online as you wish.
  • Behind the Scenes Footage
  • Patron-only community
  • Permaculture Principles Poster download

I'm so grateful for all you sprouts out there!

Sapling

Oh how I love my saplings, the precious things that you are.

To celebrate our six month anniversary, I will send you a personalised hand drawn 'greebly' (they're the cartoon characters that I draw) that looks just like you! After another six months, I can draw one for a friend of yours, for your dog, or for whoever you like, really. And on it goes :)

You'll also find a high res downloadable version of the Permaculture Principles Poster, which you can print at A1, laminate and hang up in your home, school or workplace. We worked with David Holmgren himself to create more user-friendly versions of his 12 permaculture principles, and each one has a song lyric and a drawing (as well as the original icons and principles) to help you learn and teach about permaculture.

About Brenna Quinlan

I wake up every day with the drive to do something to make the world a better place. For me, that something is done through my hand painted watercolours. And it's people like you (and chickens like Dazzle - see the video above) who help to make this happen.

I live at Melliodora, the permaculture property created by the co-founder of permaculture David Holmgren and his partner Su Dennett on Dja Dja Wurrung country in Central Victoria. The few of us who live there strive to live in the most sustainable way we can - we grow most of our food, we produce almost no waste, we regenerate the gullies and the forest around us, we build soil, we milk goats, and we swap produce, meals and stories with the broader community. It's a beautiful way to live and it allows me to truly live what I draw.

By supporting me you are helping an independent artist to create free educational and inspirational resources about climate change, social justice, environmentalism and sustainability. Most people are visual learners, which is why we relate to and remember visual information better than any other kind. Our most treasured memories are made of images - think of those happy family gatherings or of your favourite childhood adventure - and pictures influence how we see the world.

Your support allows me to do what I love - interpreting the biggest issues of our time into empowering watercolour illustrations that inspire hope and action in as many people as possible. We need some positivity in the world, and I'm so happy you're coming along for the ride. 


Questions? Here are some answers:

How do I get on board?
Click on a tier that suits you on this very page. 

Do I have to do anything if I sign up?
You decide how you participate - you can observe from a distance, or you get really involved in the community, it's entirely up to you. 

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?
Yes of course, you can cancel or change your pledge amount at any time, no questions asked. 

Can support you with a one-off donation instead?
Yes, you sure can. I accept donations through my PayPal.Me account. Simply type paypal.me/BrennaQuinlan into your browser then follow the prompts. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What's with the US dollars thing?
Patreon lists everything in US dollars on the website, but they accept payments from any currency.

What if I want to support more than the highest tier?
Well...that's very lovely of you. You can elect to donate whatever amount you would like to in the check out process, and then I'll bake you a really nice thank you cake or something (like, a REALLY nice thank you cake).

I've got more questions
Send me an email to [email protected] and let's chat.
