Welcome to the personal Patreon of Duchess Celestia/Paige Mulder! 

     Anyone with a passion in life has the inherent desire to pursue it - and by embracing art as my full-time career, I hope to achieve and maintain that sense of fulfillment that I, and many others, have dreamed of. At 16, I attended my first anime convention as an artist, selling prints and buttons. Since then, I have continued to frequent as many conventions as it's been feasible for me to travel to, and have loved every minute spent selling and creating art for those who share my love for anime/comics and art itself. At 21, I am now fortunate enough to look back upon opportunities to design one of those conventions' apparel designs, create intricate character designs for an incredible investment firm's entire team, draw fan art for some of my favourite series, participate in and moderate two charity fanzines, and complete a wide variety of commissions - and I can only hope for more to come!

     I'm Duchess Celestia (or Paige Mulder), and I'm a Canadian artist/illustrator based out of Alberta. My style is largely anime/comic-based and almost exclusively digital (created with Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop), although I intend to publish a collection of traditional, realistic art illustrating the struggles of trauma and mental illness in a way that both tells a story and allows the reader to interpret their own through it. Commissions are open, and I hope to attend as many conventions and events as I can for the foreseeable future! Additionally, I do art streams on Twitch every Monday and Friday, as well as the occasional Saturday meme stream, so be sure to check those out if you're interested!

     All of that, however, is ultimately not enough to maintain a steady living through art, as enjoyable and rewarding as it may be - and that's what brings me to Patreon. I hope to provide extra, exciting new content for anyone who enjoys my work enough to become a patron, allowing me to fully embrace this as my career, and allowing them to enjoy exclusive new stuff! If this is something you're interested in becoming involved with, please check out the perks I offer for each tier: they include monthly sketches, free buttons, access to a patron-only Discord server, physical merchandise mailed to you monthly, and more! I appreciate even the smallest amount of support, so please consider becoming a part of my art and career by joining me as a patron!

     Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy what you find here!

Goals
$14 of $300 per month
At this point, I'll have enough financial security to maintain art as my full-time career. I can devote some of my budget to better equipment for art and streaming, and can produce better (and more) content!
