About Me
As an artist and a classicist, I am deeply fascinated by the past. In Cicero's words: "Nescire autem quid antequam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum." (To be ignorant of what happened before one was born is to be forever a child.) I want to explore the ancient world for knowledge and to dig into the obscure and faded. I want to delight people with the names and faces and stories of men and women, deities and creatures whose kleos (remembered or sung glory) hangs by a thread. I am no Homer, or Sappho, or Virgil. But I can bring the stories to life with a brush and a pen all the same. I can make people remember the forgotten. Because if we don't remember, who will?



Why a lifetime contribution system?
For almost three years I ran my Patreon with the traditional system - each tier getting their own rewards. After some contemplation, I came to the realization that it didn't seem fair. I had some patrons who had been loyal for years at a time but because they were at the lower tiers, they would never get postcards, prints or drawings. I didn't feel that it was fair to punish people simply because they might not be in a position to contribute more every month. With this current system, the rewards are the same for everyone. All that changes is the time taken to get there.
