About


Hi, I'm Stacey. I’m an independent artist with an abundance of interests and a scarcity of spoons.

I write spec fiction, design vector patterns, illustrate bad puns, and blog about everything from storytelling to chronic illness to queer representation to pop culture. I create from the margins and I have a lot of thoughts on that.

My aim in creating art is to deliver something meticulously heartwarming – sometimes absurd but always optimistic. I like worlds where the girl gets the girl, axolotls can kickflip, and monsters are real but are mostly your bros. Life is hard; hug a werewolf.

My current projects include:


Why Patreon?

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2016. It effectively dropped a bomb on my functionality (and my finances) for a good long while. I had to learn to monetise everything, including my creativity - which is where Patreon came in.

I've since been able to resume part-time work but I still rely on the income generated through freelancing as a writer and artist - income partly generated through Patreon. I'm doing a lot better than I was, but I still have my off days. Patreon allows me to work when I can and rest when I can't. It also lets me split my focus between my fiction, my blogging, and my art.

At the end of the day, Patreon lets me do what I love and pay my rent. I couldn't be more grateful to my patrons for facilitating this rad arrangement.

Thanks
