I’m Lauren. Thanks for visiting my page!

Each month, I'm making art and writing about birds. There's a lot of cross-over there, since I'm a little bit of a bird nerd. 


I’m a writer, an artist, and a nature lover. If you recognize the name Firebrand Press, you've probably seen my artist books. I do letterpress printing, make handmade books, and write novels, too. I’m here because I love to do all of those things, and what makes me happiest is to see other people enjoy something I’ve made. Making art makes my days brighter, more playful, and more fun—so I hope that my pieces do that for you, too.

I’m delighted to be here on Patreon because it means I get to share my works in progress--and some finished pieces just for patrons! By joining my exclusive team, you’ll get awesome artwork delivered to you 1-2 times a month, and you’ll get access to special blog posts and Q and A that no one else will see. (Want to know more about how I made something? Just ask me. I’ll feature your question in a post.)

I'm a little obsessed with birds. They show up in my novels, in my artist books, and in etchings like the one below. So each month, I'll share some bird stories and photos of my works in progress here, and each month patrons will get some art to download–or, depending on the tier you choose–delivered straight to your mailbox. 



So what will I send you when you join me?

Depending on the tier you select, you’ll receive:

  • Digital wallpapers for your computer, tablet, and other devices
  • A variation of that wallpaper that is a desktop calendar for your computer
  • Printed greeting cards that you can send to your friends (or put on your fridge)
  • Printed postcards to display and share
  • Exclusive patrons-only access to my blog posts that feature tips, illustration and printing tutorials, and Q & A
  • Blog posts about birds—from the funny to the lovely and the wildly weird
  • Behind-the-scenes peeks at sketches, works in progress, and my studio
  • Sneak peeks of my novels-in-progress 
  • A 30% discount code you can use in my Etsy shop
  • an eBook of my short story collection, BENEATH OUR SKIN in either mobi, pub, or PDF 
  • Patrons can submit birds for me to draw—and they might just end up in a calendar or a print!




And how exactly does Patreon work? 

Members of my team have a monthly subscription. Pledges start at $1, and you can pledge any amount you like. You can cancel any time. You can contact me any time. You can even suggest an animal for me to feature in an upcoming project. Fans always inspire me! If you pledge at the $5 or higher level, I'll ask for your shipping address so I can mail your printed goodies to you. That's it. Pretty easy, right? Also, every patron will receive a special downloadable bird badge that you can share on social media, your website, or anywhere you like—to show that you're a member of my team. 

I like making people smile. Join my team, and every month I’ll send you some art that brightens your day—and is something you can share to brighten someone else's, too. For a limited time, EVERY patron will receive an eBook of my short story collection BENEATH OUR SKIN. 

Thanks for visiting, and thank you for joining my team! Your support means the world to me, because it means I get to spend more of my time making art. 


Cheers!

Lauren
