Hi there, welcome!

Let me tell you a story

When I was a child, I believed in magic. My imagination was overflowing with visions of gnomes, trolls, fairies and otherworldly creatures. I would drift off into daydreams about magical kingdoms, torn right out of fairy tales:  There were misty shores with hidden realms, witches, and forgotten kings! There was magic. Truly. Only, in my childhood mind, we humans had forgotten, and I swore to myself that I would never forget because there was magic.

Magic was as real as the trolls, that had left behind the giant boulders on the beach I grew up by. You see, they were angry with one another, so in their ire, they threw rocks! They kept missing each other, and the more they missed, the angrier they became and they forgot. They forgot it was night and the day was dawning. Trolls cannot be out in the daylight because they turn to stone, and then the day dawned…

The rocks are still there, and I know the story is true because my mother told me.

My mother sowed that seed of a sparkling imagination, and I want to share it with you. I also want to show you how, and share what I have learned so that you too can take advantage of your sparkling imagination. I believe imagination can make this world a better place.

My name is Kiri, I’m an artist, illustrator, and storyteller from Denmark, currently residing in Austin, TX.



What is Patreon and how does it work?
Patreon is a platform designed to help support the creators and creations you love. A sort of subscription service to your favorite creators, if you please. In return for your patronage, you can pick from a selection of rewards such as studio snapshots, extra video content, exclusive sketchbook sneak peak, secret sketch night invitation, or getting to know more about the projects I’m currently working on.

If you like my work and you would like to support it; first of all, you are amazing! Choose how much you would like to pledge per month (every single dollar makes a difference!) and take a look at the rewards you would like on the right. If you have more questions you can find answers to most of your questions here FAQ

Why Patreon?

Your support allows me to focus on creating awesome projects like Montague MouseArt Vlog on YouTube, the Snail Mail Series, the Women in Fantasy Illustration Series and other book projects, art projects, video projects and much more that will hopefully bring you a lot of joy, inspiration, and motivation. If you are an aspiring artist I can also help answer your questions about illustration, art careers, how to stay motivated, how to find inspiration and much more.

Your pledges will help me fund art supplies, equipment, pay bills and most importantly, free up my time from other jobs so I can focus on creating awesome projects to share with you, and while having the time to hang out with you and share everything I have learned in this artistic adventure.

I greatly appreciate you supporting my artwork, so I can keep creating fantastical things for you! ♥
