Hi! My name is Justine MacDonald (a.k.a. Aurora Lee). I'm a travel photographer and emerging mixed media artist based in Nova Scotia, Canada. I've been shooting for over 30 years and almost never leave home without my camera.

My goals: see more; create more; share more. I need your help to do that!

This project is all about sharing my art with more people and inspiring people to explore their own creativity. Most of my photography can be viewed for free on Flickr. I believe, however, that photographs and art should be printed and displayed and used! 

Keeping all that in mind, I have three main goals for this Patreon:
  1. Share physical art with more people.
  2. Recoup current expenses.
  3. Purchase materials for new experiments, buy new gear, travel to new and interesting places.
This means the money I raise through this site will be re-invested in my creative pursuits : travel, supplies and equipment, and the opportunity to spend more time on my art. It will allow me the freedom and flexibility to grow in these areas. And to share more with you! Thank you!

Contributing financially not for you? There are other ways you can be involved! Talk about and share my project and store with your networks! Follow me on Twitter and Flickr and read my blog. Do you know of an organization that would be interested in hearing me talk about my photography or travels? Connect us!

Thank you so much for your support, in whatever form it comes in. I really appreciate it!
