I Believe In You

$5 / month
I believe in my commitment to using my writing experience and psychology background to delve deeper and deeper into the intersection of creativity and therapy. In other words, I keep exploring how we can use art, craft, and creativity to improve individual and community mental health. 

If you believe in this vision then you can help make it a reality by supporting my work at any tier level that you can afford, starting at just $5 per month.

Patrons at all tier levels receive Patron-only blog posts with updates about my work, first looks at emerging unpublished writing, discounts on tangible products I create, and occasional fun snail mail. 

I donate a small percentage of proceeds to directly support other artists working in the same manner, paying it forward to grow support for sustainable art and writing careers.

In addition to my Patron-only blog posts, this tier receives quarterly art cards.

I create handmade cards inspired by all different types of things but always keeping the theme of art and mental health in mind. These are greeting cards in various sizes. Each is a one-of-a-kind handcrafted card made on card stock using materials such as stickers, washi tape, magazine cutouts, etc.

You will receive 5 handmade cards each quarter. These cards go out in the first month of each quarter (January, April, July, October). Note that you must have been a supporter at this tier for the three months preceding that issuing month in order to qualify for the gift.

Patrons at all tier levels receive Patron-only blog posts with updates about my work, first looks at emerging unpublished writing, discounts on tangible products I create, and occasional fun snail mail.

Art Makes Life Better: ZINES

$20 / month

Patrons at this tier will receive a Create Me Free zine every quarter. This zine will stick to the theme of art and mental health. It will draw on the material presented in the Patreon-only blog during the preceding quarter, deconstructing it and presenting it in new ways. You will receive 1 zine per quarter.

These zines go out in the second month of each quarter (February, May, August, November). Note that you must have be a supporter at this tier for the three months preceding that month in order to qualify for the gift.

Patrons at all tier levels also receive Patron-only blog posts with updates about my work, first looks at emerging unpublished writing, discounts on tangible products I create, and occasional fun snail mail.

Make a Writer's Day!!

$100 / month

Patrons at this tier level can choose any or all of the gifts from the other tier levels but really this is all about giving your support to something and someone that you believe in. I believe in my commitment to using my writing experience and psychology background to delve deeper and deeper into the intersection of creativity and therapy. In other words, I keep exploring how we can use art, craft, and creativity to improve individual and community mental health. If you believe in this vision then you can help make it a reality by supporting my work at any tier level. If you are in the position to support an indie writer with a long track record of contributing to the topic of how art intersects with mental health, I can't describe how much if would mean to me. I donate a small percentage of proceeds to directly support other artists working in the same manner, paying it forward to grow support for sustainable art and writing careers.

Art Heals Individuals and Communities

$200 / month
I am working on projects that benefit others in the community. My current project called Crochet Me Free is a 2+ year endeavor to work with incarcerated individuals who use crochet to heal, helping them to explore and tell their stories online and in print, create fiber art for exhibit and more. People who contribute at this level support that cause. This specific project is still in the early stages but I'm happy to share additional information with anyone who is interested.

Believe in this cause but can't contribute at this level? Contact me for info on one-time Venmo/Paypal options.
