Katie Gamb is creating fairytale art

As a shy, bookish child, I grew up immersed in fairy tales and fictional worlds. Living in the rural Midwest also afforded many opportunities to wander through woods and fields, studying tiny worlds that often went unnoticed. I loved to look into animal dens and followed the trails of snails, hoping to discover some small drama enfolding. Drawing and writing (after reading and daydreaming) were my two favorite activities, and an opportunity to put my overactive imagination to work. Really, how much do things ever change?


The Lovers, oil, commission from 2017

Most of my work is either straight-forward pencil on paper, or painted (both acrylics and oils.) Ever the dabbler, I also love to pick up random mediums from time to time. In addition to my illustrative and fine art work, I also create tiny artworks on jewelry.


A few mini-paintings from early 2018

I understand that you could be using your hard-earned money to buy any number of things instead of supporting art, so I promise to make your support worth it.

Tiers
Book Club
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
Access to in-depth and fiction-based blog posts- this is where I will post the stories behind the drawings. Often people ask about the origin stories behind the critters I draw- sometimes I'll write little stories and post them with the images on social media, but here I'll give create some extras just for you!
Snail Mail Club
$5 or more per month 9 of 25 patrons
Membership in the Snail Mail Club

Each month I will send you something in the mail! This could be a postcard of my art with a bunch of doodles and ramblings written on it, an envelope filled with stickers and scraps of vintage advertisements, or a zine with one of my little stories in it! The possibilities are endless.


-You'll also receive access to the patron-only blog posts.


(International patrons, please add an extra $1 to your pledge for postage.)

Drawing of the Month Club
$30 or more per month 2 of 10 patrons
A membership in the Drawing of the Month Club

Each month you will receive an original ATC sized (2.5x3.5 inch) mini drawing. It will be small, but more than just a doodle. I'll pick a theme each month, but the actual drawing will be a surprise to you!

The Jewelry Collector
$45 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
This tier is for those who love hand-painted jewelry and would like to start a collection.


Upon your first monthly payment, you will receive a little hand-painted jewelry box to house your treasures in. From then on, I will send you one piece of original art jewelry per season on the 15th of the month: January, April, July, and October. If you sign up after that season's piece has been shipped, you won't receive any jewelry until the next season, sorry! so please keep that in mind when you sign up.

Goals
$97 of $200 per month
Right now, I'm working part-time as an artist, and part-time as a server. Meeting this goal would help to free up more time to work on those large-scale projects that I would love to see come to life someday (mainly writing and illustrating a book!)
