About Lauren Faulkenberry

I’m Lauren. Thanks for visiting my page!

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. (So far I've published 5 books in the Bayou Sabine series, and am working on the first novel in a new romantic comedy series.) 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 access to special blog posts, peeks at my new art in progress, and more. Depending on the tier you select, you'll get some downloadable art and maybe some printed pieces or greeting cards in the mail, too. Letterpress printing was one of my first loves, and I'll take any opportunity to print something special for my friends.

My work's always been inspired by nature, and birds in particular. They show up in my novels, in my artist books, and in paintings 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:
  • Printed greeting cards or postcards that you can send to your friends, plus fun vintage stamps to use for your postage
  • Ideas for hand-lettering and calligraphy to make your snail mail even more beautiful
  • Exclusive patrons-only access to my blog posts about creativity, inspiration, and motivation for artists and living a creative life
  • Blog posts about birds—from the funny to the lovely and the wildly weird
  • Fun digital downloads like coloring pages and patterns for DIY paper crafts
  • Behind-the-scenes peeks at sketches and works in progress
  • Exclusive access to new products and special sales


And how exactly does Patreon work? 

Members of my team have a monthly subscription. Pledges start at $3, 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! When you subscribe, I'll ask for your shipping address so I can mail your printed goodies to you. That's it. Pretty easy, right? 

I like making people smile. Each month I’ll send you some art that brightens your day—and maybe helps you brighten someone else's, too.

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

Goals
3% complete
When I reach 50 patrons per month, I'll start uploading a coloring page twice a month so you relax and de-stress while you color your own critters. You can send me pics when you've filled them in, and I'll share my favorites here on the blog!
