About Julie Gibbons

Greetings!

My name is Julie Gibbons and I create + teach symbolic art. With a particular interest in the ritual landscape, art + mythology of my homeland,Scotland, I explore circles, cycles + symbols and our human experience of them, from soil to soul.

Thank you for checking me out here on Patreon 🌞

Patreon is a platform that offers a way for creators to connect with their supporters in a more intimate way, and deliver exclusive content.

How it works is that supporters like you pledge a small amount each month and as a thank you, the creator - that’s me! - offers you rewards in return. The benefits you receive vary according to the tier you subscribe to.

I’ve called my different tiers, Clans, after the ancient Scottish system of kinship and you can check those out here on the page. Will you join Clan Salmon, Adder, Deer or Beastie?

Patreon offers flexibility to both myself as an artist and you as a supporter. You can move in/out and up/down as befits your circumstances and pledges begin at only $2 per month 🧡

Becoming a patron means that you’ll always have access to the content I share, without relying on the mercy of the social media algorithms - and your regular support means I can vary my output to incorporate my creative ideas as they flow, ensuring more good folk have access to the content I produce.

Specifically, I offer exclusive content here on Patreon, including behind-the-scenes video diaries;  blog posts + recommendations; live events I’m calling ceilidhs; and for Clan Deer + Beastie, I'm building an exclusive online classroom with access to tutorials + workshop content, including recordings of the ceilidhs + associated PDF downloads.

We get to engage more intimately here and that’s so valuable in a world that relies on fast connections. And, you don’t have to engage or take part in everything you see here - there’s no pressure to perform, be seen or do anything at all if you don’t want to.

Even the smallest of contributions here allows me to continue to create meaningful art, workshops + events. In this, we’re creating culture together - in new/old ways. 

Your support allows me to research and develop a variety of content that is culturally relevant, (hopefully) inspirational, rooted and responsive. Including (but not limited to;)

  • Creative tutorials + workshops
  • Virtual live gatherings + events - the ceilidh!
  • In person community creative workshops
  • Behind-the-scenes of a creative business : how I do it
  • Meaningful personal art
  • Multi-media art exhibition + performance
  • Reviews on products, tools, resources + events
  • Interview series with leading artists, writers, scholars + activists about how (and why) we (should) create culture relevant to our times
  • Possibly a book of writings on the mandala.

In return, you will be invited to forge community and deepen your relationships, contribute to your culture, create meaningful art, and receive guidance and tutorials for art-making in new + interesting ways, by paying attention to circles, cycles + symbols, from soil to soul.

You will always be encouraged to develop your curious and creative mind, to think new + radical thoughts, ask difficult questions + receive mindful answers.

So much gratitude for your support. It makes a real difference.

Big love + deep, deep thanks
Julie xo


p.s. Recently, support from patrons allowed me to secure captions for my online videos, making it easier to engage with the work I offer - just one example of how your support helps!
