Welcome!

I'm Cat Holtz, a multimedia artist living in Portland, OR, USA. I'm creating paintings in watercolor and gouache. I also do art in other mediums, including drawing, sculpture, interactive installations, fire eating, and performance art.

Here on Patreon I'm opening a window into my daily art practice. I post images of my finished paintings, photos and videos of works in progress, and invitations to livestreaming events where you can watch me paint live. Much of this content is exclusive to Patreon. I'll also share documentation of my works in other mediums, as well as invitations to my future shows and performances.

To pursue art has been my dream for many years, and although my practice has been somewhat limited recently due to poor health, slowly, with hard work, I'm seeing my dream become a reality. My art has begun to pay my bills, and I've been able to take on private commissions to help make ends meet, and as of this year I've begun showing my work in local spaces.

Nothing would make me happier than to be able to continue to work towards my lifelong dream of being able to support myself through my work. And in spite of many setbacks, trials and travails, I somehow find myself on track to be able to do just that.

I'm grateful for all the kindness, generosity, and good luck that's gotten me this far. I'm especially grateful for each person who pledges here to become my Patreon patron. Having a small monthly income through my Patreon keeps me going in a very practical way.

Thank you, all of you, for helping me take another step closer to my goal.

Goals
$67 of $180 per month
Earning this amount from my artwork per month would give me the most precious thing an artist could ask for: dedicated time to work. This amount would allow me to spend the equivalent of a full weekend (two 6-hour days in the studio) a month focusing entirely on my artwork.

Here's how the math works out: $60 meets my first goal of being able to pay my internet bill with my art, which allows me to continue to share my work with you all. The remaining $120 is a $10/hour rate so that I can work on my art exclusively for 2 days a month.

Reaching this goal would also allow me to do one proper study, either in chalk pastel, charcoals, or graphite, each month. This could include a tradition still life, a portrait, a series of works from a life drawing session at one of the art studios in town, or formal studies of objects in my curio collection. Such a serious project takes four or more hours to see through from start to finish, and I regret that I haven't been able to put aside all my other work and concerns in order to stretch my more traditional art skills in quite a while.

Thank you so much for all your support!
