My name is Christian, and I make stuff.  I write speculative fiction and sf/f romance, as well as poetry and essays.  I do traditional art, and am learning digital.  I like to make jewelry, embroider things, and otherwise make...well, stuff.  Creativity has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

In 2015, I quit my day job.  It was an act of opportunity, but also desperation.  My life was a mess, my job was killing me, and ultimately I had to make a choice: make creativity and health a priority or perish.  

Art and writing aren't a full-time gig yet, but Patreon is part of the machinery that gets me just a little bit closer.  By supporting me here, you help sustain my work. With your support and feedback, I can make more stuff, better stuff.  

I also maintain shops at Etsy (jewelry, artwork, accessories) and Redbubble (housewares and apparel), which I post about here.

Goals
$65 of $100 per month
Pick Up A New Art Form.  I've been looking at learning resin casting, candle making, and leather working.  Earning this much a month would mean being able to maintain what I'm already doing while buying the supplies I'd need to learn, and maybe even take a class or two.
