Dawn Siebel is creating Oil portraits of endangered species
12

patrons

Hello!  My name is Dawn Siebel and I paint oil portraits of endangered species. I meet all my subjects during extended zoo visits, and shoot all my reference images. At home at work, I am remembering the being I met while I paint. These are specific animals, not generic representations of their species.

I recently decided to untether my videos from any specific dollar donation. Patreon has come to mean a community to me, and a place where people can support the work I do and I can share that work with those who care.

I make several different VIDEOS every month for Patreon:
1) This & That videos are for everyone and can be about anything! News! Monthly updates! Gallery tours. Artistic conundrums and solutions. Anything.
2) Art Lover videos track one painting from meeting the animal, through all the stages of the painting process to the finished portrait. 
3) 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 I made with the help of two interns.

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!

I will buy a GoPro camera so I can shoot time lapse video while painting. Bet I'll find other uses for it too.
