About DorothiesAll

It's a start (and by no means an end to anything at all), simply a means to an end  ...because in the end Dorothy needs a little encouragement to find her way home.

What this means in practice...

Your patronage allows me to move toward creative, financial freedom and to realize my life's dream to do what I love for a living. And creating for others is what I love to do! 

For those of you who don't know me yet, here's a glimpse into the one behind DorothiesAll:
  •  I'm a photographer and visual problem solver with 25 years of experience capturing the play of light across faces and revealing treasures under overturned rocks.
  • I’m an aspiring writer with a strong interest in clear communication and an ear for the lyrical phrase – I’ve presented my classroom experience to teachers nationwide through workshops and lectures, been published in an education trade journal, and have extensive experience communicating on Twitter and Instagram. I have yet to be paid for my writing.
  • I’m an experienced solo traveller with 3 decades of travelling for the pleasure of calling the world home.
  • I am a working artist and have found diverse ways to make a living, including: teaching, photography/videography, ceramics, online communication, and screen printing. I currently work as a video producer for a non-profit specializing in yoga and meditation with an emphasis on spiritual unfoldment.
  • I live my life creatively and am constantly looking for ways to balance work with play. This page is one way of finding that balance because I need time and space to more fully express my ideas and creative work.
I am currently working on a mixed-media short novel about a young adventurous girl learning to navigate a complex world on her own terms. Loosely based on Hartjen family stories, the novel begins on the east end of Long Island, NY and may end in a place of your choosing. I hope to weave interactive storytelling with audio, video and digital art that invites readers to interact with the story in novel ways.

I'm also working on writing and editing a set of poems for publication. A taste of these can be found at LisaHartjen.com.

Even more to the point.... 

When I reach my first Patreon goal, I'll publish my polished posts weekly instead of twice a month, and I'll have the time to edit a set of poems and writings for publication.

When I reach my second Patreon goal, I'll be able to self-publish a book of my original poems and writings. Every one of my patrons at the time of publication will have Patreon access to these new poems and writings, and my VIP patrons will receive a signed copy of the printed book as a gift.

Your patronage shows me in real world ways how much you value my creations -- and that means the world to me! Thanks so much for supporting my work, my play, and my creations!

Sending smiles your way!
