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.  We make art FOR YOU, so shouldn't you be involved?



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.


It's almost been 13 years since I finished my degree in Studio Art.  Five moves in the States, and 43 countries later, I'm aching for a home, a garden, some sheep, but equally I'm aching for sustainable meaningful work.  

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 currently working through a dizzying myriad of project lists and goals:
-  Song collages promoting musicians (#whatsongslooklike)
-  50 States [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
-  A very big mixed media archival book of my last 5 1/2 years abroad



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

Tiers
Littles
$2 or more per month

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 get access to a Patreon only feed, where I'll be sharing many private peaks, such as time lapse process videos, Q & A sessions, studio meanderings, and spontaneous discount codes for both shops. 

Sunflowers
$8 or more per month

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 (!) In addition to the "Littles" perks, you'll get viewing access to a small project series that will change from time to time created specifically and only for Patreon supporters (those plain old IG followers won't know what they're missin').

PeachTrees
$18 or more per month

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?  In addition to everything above, you'll also receive a surprise in the mail 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.

Bluebirds
$40 or more per month

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.  So adding on to the Little, Sunflower, and PeachTree treats, I'll be offering you a seasonal bonus (four times per year) 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)!

Goals
7% complete
I've been selected for the juried San Francisco stART up Fair on July 19th - 21st.  Help me get there?!  (There WILL be gifts for everyone once the goal is met!)

stARTup is a unique contemporary art experience where art professionals and the art loving public gather to discover today’s most talented independent artists through hotel art fairs, curated art exhibitions, collector advising, and private art sales and rentals.
