 Thank you for visiting my page! My vision is to share the power of art and writing as healing tools for depression and grief. I have two major career goals in life. One is to be an advocate for mental health, especially in regards to apathy, depression, trauma and grief. The second is to support independent artists and writers, especially women of color and those who identify as LGBTQ.

A little background on my work: 
 
In 2017 I launched D.I.Y. Therapy, a series of free lessons to guide those who are healing from depression.  These lessons inspired me to create Radical, a magazine that would spread the message of hope and healing along with showcasing talented artists and writers. 

Radical is an online magazine or "zine", with a focus on self-care through art and writing. It features diverse voices from around the globe and is available to read and download for free here on Patreon, on my website and in Issuu.com.

Currently the costs to publish and promote Radical are growing and that is where you can help. With your patronage I will be able to pay contributors for their work, promote Radical and continue inspiring others to practice self-love and self-care in all aspects of their lives!

FAQ's

Who am I?
I'm an adventurer with an endless curiosity about our world and compassion for others, but I haven't always felt this way. For seventeen years my life was filled with a dark depression based on trauma in my early years. That period was filled with fear and doubt which caused me to become sick with a variety of problems. My healing journey has been both painful and beautiful over the years. Now, I have a new wonder for life and a sense of inner peace that was missing for so long. 

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a sustainable way for artists to earn an income in the digital age of free downloads. It also allows you to get a more intimate, inside look at your favorite artists. By joining this community, you will help me continue offering e-courses, art, books that help people on their unique healing journey. As a patron your reward will be tangible items including art, writing and exclusive perks.

What will we be creating?
Empowering and creative art and writing projects. Some of what we create will be exclusively for patrons like you. Other things will be for the general public. The more patrons who join us, the more we can create!

Why do you have a goal of 200 Patrons? I want to be able to pay contributors for their work and market Radical to a larger audience. Patronage starts at just $1 a month.


Where does the money go?
The first 10% goes to Patreon/processing fees. The other 90% goes to funding cool art and writing projects and outreach to help others find their unique healing path:
  • Art projects like my book collaboration about radical self-love
  • Outreach to share the free e-course
  • Coloring pages with positive affirmations
  • Weekly meditations
  • Weekly journal prompts

Do I have to pay in US Dollars? No. You can pay in other currencies and the site will convert it into US Dollars.

How many creations will you create each month? It really depends. Some months will be juicier than others, but I have been creating new pieces of art or writing something new every week. I've been creating weekly meditations and journal prompts already!

I don't have much to give, can I still join? Absolutely! You can give as little as $1 a month or make occasional payments.

Can I stop or put a hold on payments? Yes, you can stop payments anytime by logging in to your account. Patreon only charges cards on the first of the month so you can cancel before or after that date.

Do you already make a lot of money selling books and art? I work diligently to promote my work, but my sales are not that high. What little I earn doesn't come close to paying for my time and energy. Plus, since my art can be easily shared, people download and use my art without paying. I also want to keep things like my e-course free for those who really need the help, but that costs money.

I have a question that isn't here! Please visit the Support Page, or send me a message!
