Hello! And WELCOME to my Patreon page!


ABOUT THE ARTIST

My name is LAURA HINES, and I am a freelance ILLUSTRATOR based in Flagstaff, AZ. I am largely self-taught, only entering the art industry in my mid-20's following college (Earlham, '07) and a brief stint in the corporate world. I began working professionally as an illustrator in 2011 following my summer illustration residency at the SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS (SVA) in NYC. I've worked as an intern at JUXTAPOZ MAGAZINE, and have shown my work in galleries across the US and even in Italy and New Zealand.

After the death of my father in December of 2013, I took a hiatus from illustration to explore another passion: opera music and singing. My musical journey was a healing one, but ultimately I returned to my first love, the visual arts, in early 2017. So here I am, back in the saddle, and working harder than ever to hone my voice and improve my craft.

This is where YOU come in!

THE NECESSITY OF PATRONAGE

Since resuming my illustration career in January of 2017, I've been fortunate to receive some incredible support and feedback, including being selected as a runner-up in CREATIVE QUARTERLY's CQ49 issue, and joining CREATIVE GATEWAYS, a studio space, artist collaborative, and gallery, in Sedona, AZ. I am also a part of an incredible roster of artists at EASLE, and I've been privileged to work with clients such as XOVER0 (Los Angeles, CA) and DEBENHAMS (London, England). 

However, working as a full-time illustrator and artist is a costly pursuit. Now that I have my own studio space, I am more productive than ever, but I also face the cost of monthly rent, commuting to my studio two hours each day 5+ days a week, and now paying for my upcoming residency. My clientele and fan-base is steadily growing as I gain exposure, but I still struggle to cover the cost of travel, rent, supplies, and miscellaneous business expenses such as making prints, shipping packages, and affording office equipment. 

With YOUR monthly patronage, I will be able to:

- work with PEACE OF MIND, knowing my costs will be covered

- focus on the quality and content of NEW WORK without worrying about the constant hustle to make up the costs of existing work

- continue my DEVELOPMENT as an artist and EXPAND my professional practice.

As a patron, here is what YOU will receive in return!:

You will receive MONTHLY REWARDS exclusive to my Patreon contributors that include access to works in progress, sketches, process videos, hi-resolutions images of my work, discounts on my Etsy store, and more!

$200/month will allow me to commute with impunity by affording my monthly gas costs, thus allowing me to spend more days in the studio and create more new work for myself and my patrons to enjoy!
