Hello there! Welcome to my Patreon page!

I'm Jo but most of the internet knows me as josiesmuse or Josie.  I'm an Illustrator, aspiring children's book author and lover of watercolour living amongst the trees in Queensland, Australia.  I love creating quirky silly whimsical creatures in watercolour and other media mostly because it makes me happy but also because putting my silly little critters into the world seems to make you happy too.

At the end of last year I had to leave my full time high stress day job due to health so this is my way of giving back to our gorgeous little online art community by sharing my weird little world with you, hopefully inspire you to give watercolour a go and teach you some of my secrets hidden in the corners of my journals along the way and also in some small way help to support my family.

   

I want to teach the unique to me things I know about drawing and watercolour with my patrons, I want to show you my weird little world and let the never shared corners of my journals shine in the light.  Let me invite you into my world where the watercolour is always flowing, the water is never for drinking as its always paint stained haha and the crayons and pencils come in every colour of the rainbow.  Help support my confidence as an artist and get all those illustrations in my head out on paper!



Behind the scenes I have tons of ideas constantly brewing: stories both epic and quirky, goofy and weird, children's books and adventure-filled illustrated worlds of whimsy, that I put in the "someday" pile due to the need of getting by day to day. A week doesn't go by where I don't scribble new story ideas or wake at 2am with a new character idea.  Well, I have decided to take the plunge and make "someday" start today. The goal of my Patreon is to teach you about watercolour and drawing but also bring these stories to life and to share them with the world, and as a Patron you would help me make that happen!



How it works?  If you want to support my work and join my weird little world, just choose how much you want to pledge per month (even $2 is incredible) and get some cool perks like behind the scenes blog posts, access to drawings and never shared before sketchbook pages, time lapse videos, watercolour tutorial videos and don't worry ; you can cancel or change your pledge at any time, so no pressure.
✧ regardless of whether or not you choose to pledge, i cannot express to you how much i appreciate you letting me be a part of your world. i want to keep making lovely, fun things for you, and i'm just really excited that you want to see them!! ✧

💚I appreciate so much any support of my art you are willing to give so I can keep drawing my quirky characters for you💚

Much love and hugs
Jo
