What, Who?
If you are reading this, I am probably ...
... making art (or adulting).
During the day, I am one of those ominous IT people, but I am also a mom of an infant.
Luckily, I have a wonderful partner, so I can follow my passion during the night: making art!
I love drawing with pencil and ink. I have used oil paints and acrylics in the past, but am super into watercolor lately. I also have a big love for travel and the outdoors, and you will see that this reflects in my artwork. I'm also a huge video game geek, which may or may not influence my art (it will).
A little more info about myself: I was born and raised in Germany, did an exchange year in the US, met my husband, and now I live in Milwaukee, WI.

Why?
Ready to join my adventure? Follow me along my creative process, and share your thoughts. I hope we can inspire each other. I have set up some rewards for you, as a thank you if you support my art. I may do a little themed series each month, a story if you will.
A big part of the fun on Patreon, is to be able to share my thoughts and inspirations as well as my work in process with you, be it a special song, a movie, a great memory or a place I have been.
Each level has different treasure to choose include sketches, postcards, and even commissions.
The plan is to use anything you give me to buy art supplies and support other creators here.
My biggest dream is to live from my art some day and travel more.

How?
Once my patron, you will see all off my artwork pictures before anyone else online, special prices and have the chance to call dibs early. You will also see my work-in-progress shots and sketches, which I don't post elsewhere.
For rewards send via snail mail: I will send them after you have been successfully charged for that tier. 
If you need something sooner or just love to buy my art, you can do that in one of my shops.

P.S.:
Please make sure your address is up to date! If you do not wish to receive gifts in the post please contact me and we can arrange something else.

You are under no obligation and can cancel at any time! If you decide to change how much you want to donate per month to suit your budget, that's fine too!
