Kia ora * Talofa lava * Up2 * Hello
I'm Coco.
I am a Māori Samoan German femme woman hailing from Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.
I'm a full-time writer, musician and artist. I also enjoy community work, mentoring and art-based activism. 

I produce my creative work under the name Jessica Hansell or Coco Solid. I am proud to be telling stories on my terms, building images and archetypes, trying to empower (or at least entertain) my people, while moving culture and conversations when I can. 

In the rewards section I am offering advance releases of my work and restricted content.
Patreons get my essays, music, artwork and podcast content first and the opportunity to exclusively purchase, publish or commission shared works too. I offer restricted content only available on my Patreon feed, u get a bootleg philanthropic podcast sponsorship status... there are Spotify playlists, care packages and even Skype sessions where I give advice like my life doesn't need work. 

A Patreon stipend, no matter how small, helps me independently create and focus on the projects, people and ideas that I think are important. This year I was dangerously caught in the freelance crossfire a lot waiting for deposits to drop and projects to resume. This Patreon is just to futureproof and support myself - while making cool, specialised, no-filter things for an audience that will enjoy them. Maybe it will give me the odd bit of fun and sovereignty as a pressurized indigenous woman in the 21st century, who knows!
I will always grind regardless of who has my back, but it's pretty cool you're even considering it! Pick a reward, support ya girl and read below for a portfolio glimpse of my werk.
