I have been thinking about how to reward people who want to support at a higher level so I am introducing the ART-IN-THE-MAIL tier.

Each month I will create a small original work on paper. I will sign & date and put it in the mail just for you. Your support is such a gift and I so much appreciate your love.

Helping You Become a Better Artist

(Learn more about my Mentoring Tier)

As a mentor, I want to help take the fears and the doubt out of your personal journey through art. Each piece of art you create shapes you, every brushstroke, every idea, every time we make ourselves vulnerable to the colors we arrange on the canvas we grow. I will help and support you grow in the directions of your dreams. Helping you sidestep some of the most common pitfalls, introduce you to new ideas and ways to think about getting the most from your art and challenge you to think bolder and bigger by pushing you beyond the space your art occupies. As a mentor I work to direct you towards taking risks that can help you to see past the limitations of the brush.

Your subscription to this tier will enroll you in a monthly session with me via zoom. We will work together to come up with a schedule that is individually focuses on your personal needs and concerns as an artist. In addition, these sessions will be recorded and shared with you so that you can monitor and reference each step of your personal journey.

As a Patreon Subscriber to this tier you will have full access to all 
Patreon content

About donna downey

Watch a fun little preview:

As an entrepreneur, professional artist, seeker of truth and believer in the creative spirit, I have learned just how magical shared inspiration can be. Spending most of my life as both teacher and student, there is one thing I know for certain; community makes a monumental difference in the artistic journey.

Here you will find your tribe,
Develop your practice,
Learn techniques,
Open your possibilities,
Engage your curiosity,
Jumpstart your motivation,
Embrace your style,
Build your confidence,
Grow your gifts,
Evolve your art,
And celebrate your uniqueness

This Patreon is the heart of my creative process, my way to bring original fresh, inspiring content to creatives looking to evolve their artistic perspectives in new ways. I strive to motivate and challenge artists to push past their fear and create from their intuitive core.

Your subscription unlocks your exclusive access to dozens of step-by-step lessons, tutorials, demos, challenges, professional advice, creative feedback, mentoring and so much more.

The feedback that I get from my patrons already gathered here has been so beautiful, sometimes vulnerable and always insightful. My patrons have gotten to know me and I have made incredible connections with so many. This is where I expose all of my creative and sometimes not so creative processes. I cherish the connection.

I post several times a month. I talk about everything. My creative life, my work, my inspirations, my troubles, my process, I ask questions and I read every comment because it means so much to me that you take the time to say so much!

So whether you’ve been a fan of mine since my scrapbooking days or you’ve just recently found me, I would love to invite you to join this community and dive into the inspiration.

And if you are already one of my patrons...THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH for your support. I love you and you are making the impossible dream possible.

You make magic happen!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via text/call the studio at 704.240.8076 or or here on Patreon once you sign up!

For an overview of how Patreon works in general, HERE is a video link of one of my webinars to explain how it all works.

343 of 500 patrons
Your enthusiasm and encouragement has not only inspired Inspiration Wednesday (Now INSPIRATION Any Day) to continue, but given so many artists, including myself, the drive to keep experimenting. When our community reaches 500 patrons, I will release an additional INSPIRATION Any Day lesson every month.
