Dawn Siebel

is creating Oil portraits of endangered species
Hello!  My name is Dawn Siebel and I paint oil portraits of the most amazing animals. I meet them  during extended zoo visits, and I take all my own reference images. Back home, I am remembering the being I met while I paint their portrait. These are specific animals, not generic representations of their species.

I recently decided to untether my videos from any specific dollar donation. Patreon is a community for me, and a place where I can share my work and people can support what I do. 

Every month, I make several different VIDEOS for Patreon:
1) This & That videos are short and sweet and about anything! News! New work! Monthly updates! Gallery tours. Artistic conundrums. Solutions. Anything. 
2) Art Lover videos track one painting from beginning to end, from meeting the animal, through all the stages of the painting process to the finished portrait. A new time-lapse camera is making these even more dynamic and fun.
3) Bi-monthly Animal Lover videos use still photography and video I shoot on my zoo research trips to create a mini movie about these endangered species I paint. They can also be a larger project like "Elephants: A Partial History," a 6-part series.

Please support me in the work I do painting and advocating for endangered species. Your patronage - whether modest or extravagant -  allows me to focus on my work and the animals in them. Patreon is about RELATIONSHIPS. Join me in this great community-building adventure.

Thank you!
