About Lane Welkin

I love people, and I have often wished I could show them how much. Now, I do. I make written portraits about people and the work they do. When people see something beautiful, they know it immediately, and somewhere assume that beauty must be inherent to the person who made it. I believe this, and I like to point it out. I write short prose or poetry about people and am working on a bigger project that will act as handbook for people who have never felt satisfied in their work, their identity, their self portrait.

Your support will fuel my gas tank to visit the people I write about, maintain my website,and to buy the materials to make and send portraits as gifts to the creators of the work.

I want people to feel seen and beautiful. I wish I could write a portrait for everyone I ever knew, because they deserve it. As a Patron, I would love to hear your insights about who or where I should visit. I would love your input on current and future projects. But, mostly, I love people, and so I love you.

Thank you for visiting my Patreon!
