  • Mention on the artwork’s corresponding page of my website for each artwork you helped support (with optional link to your web site or business - you can specify if/how you want your name to appear, or if you want to remain anonymous);

Patreon provides the opportunity for members of a community to financially support artists like me, in exchange for certain rewards or perks. Your support helps me produce more and better art, while sharing it with you.

You can choose the per-creation amount and reward level from the list, and can cancel at any time.

You can also set a monthly cap so that even if I’m crazy prolific in a given month, you'll never pay more than you’ve budgeted.


Drawing on Culture: West Africa: The first in a series that explore various cultures from around the world. ➔

Spirit Animals & Wild Places: Wildlife Art that celebrates the sacred nature of the beings with whom we share this planet. ➔

Anatomy & Figure Drawing Journal: An ongoing journal of my studies of the human form, in charcoal and pencil. ➔

Cultural Paintings: A collection of paintings from over the years, many inspired by my travels in West Africa. ➔

I’m an artist, musician, and writer, and I get a lot of my inspiration from my adventures traveling to interesting places. I’m passionate about anthropology, which is to say, I want to understand the human experience and this thing that we call culture. My explorations into the diverse cultures of the world have inspired me to make artwork and music about the people and places I have seen. I’ve also written and illustrated a book about my time living in West Africa, where I studied traditional music styles over the past decade and a half.

My artwork and music are a means for me to tell stories about the diverse world in which we live. I have traveled well off the beaten path to find these stories, and I am pleased to share them with you in my projects and latest artwork. My hope is that they can add something of value or interest to what it means to be human, and alive, on this magnificient Earth.

Your support helps me greatly in my journey to make the best art possible, and share it with you.

By supporting my artwork, you not only become part of my process of making and sharing art, you enable me to put more time and resources into developing my artwork and skills. Each day that I sit down at my easel or drawing board, I learn something new, my art improves, and the vision of what I can contribute to this world becomes stronger and clearer. I have big ideas and want to help create a more beautiful world. You’re helping me do this. Thank you!

Thanks for visiting, and heaps of gratitude to all who have supported me along the way!

You can pledge any amount you choose, from the rewards tiers at the right. Pledges will be collected for each finished artwork, and payments will be processed around the 1st of the month. You can also set a cap for your total budget, and cancel any time.

6 of 20 patrons
My first goal: 20 patrons! Twenty feels like something of a community, and seems to me like social proof that there are people out there who are willing to support my work.

Are you one of those people? Can you share this with friends, family, and social media, and help me reach this humble goal?
