About me

I am an artist from New Zealand and ecology is the central theme of my paintings. My paintings are made using leaves, petals and seeds instead of brushes. I apply paint to the foliage and then print onto paper or linen to create an image of a garden, a forest, an ecosystem. This experimental nature printing technique is a combination of painting and printmaking. I spend many hours in my studio each week creating artworks with the foliage collected on walks.

Why use Patreon?
To continue making art and sending it out into the world I need to pay for art materials, a studio, a camera, scanner and a computer. Most of all I need time to develop my art. I'd like to invite you to become my patron and become part of my creative community. As a reward for becoming my patron I'm offering a digital artwork each month that you can print at home or at a print shop. Pop it in a frame and you'll accumulate a beautiful collection of my artwork to enjoy and give. You can print as many copies as you like (so long as they are for personal use only). You'll also get access to my patron only content, including work in progress photos, behind the scenes studio shots and any other goodies I can dream up! Art is what I do best and it is with your participation that I will be able to make more paintings and exclusive content for my Patreon community. 

Here's how Patreon works:

I will make one digital artwork per month available to my patrons and you can choose to contribute $1, $3, $5 or $10 per artwork. The artworks will vary in size from A6 (postcard) size, A5 or A4 size (similar to US Letter). They will be provided to you as a high resolution JPG or PDF files ready to print at home or at a print shop. You can set a maximum charge per month so that you'll only ever pay what you are comfortable with.

For those wonderful patrons who are contributing $10 per artwork I'll offer an extra reward of a special Christmas digital artwork in November/December to use as a gift or for yourself, and for $20 patrons I'll offer extra printable artwork to celebrate seasonal events. 

To learn more about my painting process and background please visit my website and blog at www.celeste.nz. I believe that art can offer hope, beauty, joy, solace and contemplation. Nature inspired art is my passion and I'd like you to join me on this creative journey. 

thanks,
Celeste Sterling
