My name is Christy, but a lot of people know me as the artist Goldenwolf (most people call me Goldie). I am a full-time professional artist, and I have been creating my unique brand of artwork for nearly 25 years now.

I have always loved drawing animals and creating mythical and fantastic anthropomorphic animal characters. I also have a fascination with the mystical nature of our world, and enjoy creating more esoteric pieces as well. But by far my most favorite subject (personally) is werewolves. I have always been in love with the idea of these cursed creatures of film, folklore, and fantasy, and I indulge my shadow side by drawing my own beastly, snarly version of the werewolf myth.


I use a technique of watercolor and colored pencils to create my works, or I paint detailed acrylic paintings, depending on my mood with the piece. By becoming my Patron, you can see how I create my pieces, go more in-depth into my process, and discover some personal tidbits about myself and my life as well. 


I do various shows throughout the year where I sell my art and products. From mundane art and gift shows, to Furry conventions, Renaissance festivals, and Comic Cons, together with my business partner Sandra we bring our artwork to the public. We sell various products such as matted and framed prints, t-shirts, banners, wall scrolls, pendants, key chains, art books, and a bunch of other merchandise featuring our artwork. A good portion of my income comes from doing these shows, which I am grateful for, but they take a lot out of me in time, energy, and effort. While I truly love being able to travel this way and meet my fans...I would honestly rather be home creating art.

By becoming my Patron, you will be helping me to achieve that goal of doing less shows, and more art. More art means more new art, originals, tutorials, live streams, and side projects like art books, plushies, enamel pins....I have so many ideas! I will also be able to get on top of my commission list and take more commissions, as well as—*gasp*—have more time for personal art (and my writing)! Also, I would LOVE to experiment with new mediums, such as oil paints, and really want to delve into the digital art world as well. There is SO much I would love to do!

Becoming my Patron will help me to be home and make more of the art that you love.



When you join my exclusive tribe through Patreon, you will get some awesome rewards in return

  • Access to my Patron-only Blog: I post exclusive looks at works in progress, early looks at new art, thoughts about art and creativity, and interesting tidbits like my favorite art supplies, my work space, and photos from my shows, pictures of my pets. Whatever I think might interest you.
  • First look at works in progress (WIPs) and new art: You will be the first to see work in progress shots of new work, and the final piece days before it is released publicly.
  • Live Streaming and Other Videos: From time to time (at least once a month) I do exclusive live streams of my colored and more detailed work (I do public streams of sketches and drawings). All Tribe members ($5 or more) get access to these exclusive streams where you can watch me create live, and ask me questions which I will answer verbally over my stream. You will also get access to time lapse and other videos that I will do as well.
  • Monthly Coloring Pages: At the first of each month, all of my Tribal members ($5 or more) get a free coloring page to download and color. You can join in the fun by coloring and sharing your work in my Community section!
  • First dibs on new art: All of my Patrons will get first dibs on any new "for sale" (non-commission) art that I create. $20 or higher tier members will be offered a discount on originals.
  • Secret Sketchbook: All of my $20 or more tiers get access to my Secret Sketchbook, where I post sketches, drawings, and other works of a private or personal nature.
  • Other rewards: Check out each tier and see what I have to offer in exclusive rewards. I will also offer freebies for those at the Tribal ($5 or more) level from time to time, such as stickers, book marks, downloadables, and other goodies.



I have always loved creating anthropomorphic animals in a tribal society/setting. To me, this would be the natural way of being for such creatures, living in large family groups within a tribal society with their own languages, customs, rituals/religions, and symbols. So just for fun I am structuring my Patron levels as a tribe of animal people. Everyone who supports me will be a part of my Patreon tribe! I want to have fun with this, so there will be some creative surprises in store for my tribe members including tribe-only blog posts and more!







Thank you for checking out my Patreon. I hope that you will have fun watching what I create!
