WHAT IS PATREON?  Patreon is a platform specifically for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons."  This is exciting because it offers an opportunity for people to say: YES, I believe that artists are a necessary and important part of our community.  It provides avenues for feedback, accountability, and more intimate integration in the creative process.  



I'm here because I believe it matters. Making things.
Making things m a t t e r s.
And because things made are gifts - windows, comforts, delights. They are teachers, listeners, mirror holders. They pause us, pull us out of ourselves, to consider, remember, realize, wonder.


My sewn collage work is primarily about memory architecture, its process, and the layers of tiny alterations which happen each time a repeated recollection occurs. I often strive to blend autobiographical narratives with larger collective subjects such as childhood, longing, and place, creating layered field recordings that represent multiple interpretations and perspectives of the same story.



I'm also beginning work on a large mixed media archival book of my travels during the most recent previous 5 1/2 years.  This will include writings, photographs, journal notes, and collected / found objects from places scattered in Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. I will ONLY be sharing progress on this project privately here on Patreon.

I'm currently working through a dizzying myriad of additional project lists and goals which your Patreon funds will all help support moving forward on:

-  Song collages promoting musicians (#whatsongslooklike)
-  Collaborative material participation series project
-  Getting outside the frame and exploring memory architecture in installation formats
-  Figuring out how to create sewn collage in larger formats
-  Continuing to "paint" with wool and felt
-  Experimenting with a sewing machine
-  Releasing my work in the form of a collectible book series
-  A return to painting (!)
-  Several children's books
-  Little home illustrations series 
-  Hand sewn felt "dollings" for children





Thank you for being here, for believing all of this is important.

Tiers & Benefits:


I've been there, where nickels matter. I've lived off bread loaves and a jar of honey for weeks while hitchhiking in Albania. We aren't always in a season of financial excess. But even a little $2 feels so gracious - like a tip, a nod of your hat, a "keep going I love what you're doing." You'll gain access each month to:

  • Exclusive Patreon posts, with private peaks into the studio process of all mediums (in progress work, time lapse videos, polls)
  • Early viewings of new artwork
  • Access to Patreon only merchandise


Why sunflowers? I don't know, because they're taller than something little, and I really like them. I want to plant tons of them outside my art studio sun room someday. And by giving $8, you're helping me move closer to that vision (!) You'll gain access each month to:

  • Weekly progress on a special (secret) small project series


  • Plus, all the previous tier rewards:

    • Exclusive Patreon posts, with private peaks into the studio process of all mediums (in progress work, time lapse videos, polls)
    • Early viewings of new artwork
    • Access to Patreon only merchandise

Yes, a reasonable sized orchard may also be on my someday dream list. You may be asking at this point, wait, am I supporting an artist or just an aspiring homesteader? Well, the truth is both, but when the ladder happens, I'll make sure and send you some peach jam, deal? You'll gain access each month to:

  • A "Sunling" snail mail surprise from me every month - perhaps a small original sketch, a print, or one of my many future merchandise endeavors. Whatever it is, I can guarantee day improvement and spirit lifting when you find it in your mailbox.

  • Weekly progress on a special (secret) small project series

This beautiful singsong contribution will help sustain me in bigger way, one that really helps it all continue - studio supplies, exhibition costs like framing and travel, submission fees, my morning coffee, brave thoughts. It means. a lot. You'll gain access to:

  • A seasonal bonus (every three months) that includes a small custom original A5 sized artwork of your choice. Illustrated portraits (people, pets, homes), a personalized rememory collage, or any other commissioned idea you have (think: four birthday gifts already done and dusted for the year!)
