About Thom the Toymaker

Welcome 🙏
✨A HUGE THANK YOU for visiting my Patreon page! ✨
There are so many places you could be right now, but you're HERE, and I'm very grateful for that!

For those who don't know me, hello! I'm a songwriter, author, puppeteer and meditation coach based on Salt Spring Island in BC, Canada 🌊. Husband to my beautiful wife Marley, newly minted father of a 2 year-old-girl and a baby boy, and all around indie creative. You may have heard my songs on CBC radio, seen my album "snowdragons" featured in Folk Radio UK's 'Top 10 albums of the Year,' or maybe even been to one of my puppet shows! 

Why Patreon?
As of 2019, I am a fully independent artist. This also means I am fully self-funded!! I have had such a blessed career and have been able to create music, travel, and inspire thousands with my art. I never thought It was possible, but Life has opened so many doors for me. My fans have helped sustain me this far, and now I’m asking for your continued support. I’ve partnered with Patreon, which is a crowdfunding site that helps artists create another channel of sustainable income. When you subscribe to my Patreon you help me to continue to create high-quality art as well as employ other creators that help me to make amazing new music and content. Also, your contribution gets you some pretty cool stuff like free merch, unreleased music, early access, and a ton more. I have a lot of ideas and inspiration I want to share with you all, and it takes money to do it (mixing, mastering, graphics, video editing, photoshoots, web design, admin, project management, travel, etc.). I want to continue to create heartfelt moments and beautiful experiences for you. Whether you’ve known me since day one or you've just discovered me, I consider you a part of my creative family and I want to continue to give you my best. I also want to see you grow in your creative journey.

While Patreon helps me receive your support, I also want to give back to you. Over the years, I've seen so many struggling and frustrated creatives trying to make a living with their art. This page exists for indie artists and creative entrepreneurs to help grow their brand and learn from my industry experience. You'll have access to what goes on 'behind closed doors' in my creative process and learn what's helped me achieve a successful career as an indie creative.

What To Do Next?
If you're ready, take a look at the different tier options and see which one may be a fit for you.
Each tier is designed for a different level of involvement.

Thanks for your support !

Once I reach this level of patron support, I will create a puppet show every month for a child in hospital or child in need in one of my patrons' local communities.
