Greetings Friends, Miscellany Enthusiasts, Strange ART Supporters, Lovers of the Weird and Watchers from the great vast planes of the interwebs!
I welcome you to my patreon page!

If you are here to support my path in any way, even just by watching with morbid curiosisty, I THANK YOU truly, from the bottom of my spleen to the top of my crown chakra!


INTRODUCTION, PURPOSE, and REASONS:

I am an imaginer, a collector, a dreamer... just like you.

Sometimes it seems as if I have my toes in everything! I display at art shows, travel and vend at conventions, write my own websites, make art for myself, write and compose poetry, teach at a community college and ponder the universe. I paint, draw, sculpt, make installations, do digital art, take photos, write and go slowly insane. 

As a creator, I easily become obsessed with the nonsense, the experimental and the other worldly.
I love to connect with people on a creative physical level, and find utmost joy in spontaneous delights. I am always and forever trying new things in the studio. Being a teacher as well, I often experiment with new ways to open creative minds and expose my students to unexpected methods, materials and subjects. Because of this I SAVE EVERYTHING. Materials as well as creative experiments. Bits and pieces that become magic when separated and taken out of context. Ephemera, combined with cut text, mixed with painted color and imagery suddenly become a talisman of imagination and dreaming. I want to share this passion with you, as well as create a fluid environment where my collection can flow out of my space and into yours - digitally as well as physically. 



Monthly Physical Rewards: CRAZYMAIL! I LOVE sending snail mail to people, to connect with them on a physical level, and to brighten their mailbox with something other than bills.
I am an artist ruled by whims of creativity and this process will go a lot smoother if I play into those whims as strengths instead of trying to control them!

*I currently only have 15 spots available each for the postcards and crazymail letters, but as other things become available I will release them through my shop.




Non Physical rewards:
* PROCESS: Patreon Patrons will get a more in depth peek at my process and progress in 2019. I also now have the ability to make videos from my digital and digital remix work. As I develop these videos learn how much time I can dedicate to the process, I may make a video tier in the future!
* DISCOUNTS: All patreon supporters will get a PERMANENT discount code to use on my online shop!
SNEAK PEEKS: When possible, I will share special available items on here first, as well as peeks of new art and things I don't want to share with the general public yet! 
RANDOM PONDERINGS!: Patreon IS set up like a blog afterall, so I might as well ponder here! 

THANK YOU!!
With your support and interest in my random creativity, not only will I be able to happily fulfill my love of spontaneous creative correspondence, but it will help to fund my artistic pursuits. I am currently in the process of creating a new strange little art book in color, and I so desperately wish to travel for inspiration and new experiences to feed my bean.

Thank you again for coming on this journey with me. I hope you will enjoy watching my progress and process!

--- A NOTE ON CHARGES and OFFERS
These offers are subject to change in the future as I become able to offer new things. If you have a request, please don't hesitate to ask!
Patreon support will be a monthly charge, at the beginning of a month. Sign up or cancel anytime with no obligations. Mail will be sent out *after the first of the month, once charges have been applied. If you cancel before the beginning of a month, you will not be charged and you will not receive anything. If you want crazymail but can only afford a stamp, send ME some crazymail and chances are you will get crazymail in return!
My public studio address is 212 W. 10th St. Suite A-250, Indianapolis, IN. 46202.

EDIT (Nov 2018): ** I will send out crazymail once per month UNLESS I put my patreon on hold.**

--- A NOTE ON CONTENT:
Most of the art I do is of a surreal and dark nature. Crazy mail content will most likely be a mix of light and dark themes, sometimes heavy psychological ponderings and/or the occasional *artistic* nude (but I won't post any of those on the patreon blog due to the rules of visibility).
SEE MY WEBSITE TO BROWSE MY WORK: http://lydiaburris.com

** If you are wanting to get snail mail of a more light hearted and G rated nature, this is possible. Just make sure to send a message and I will make note by your address.

EDIT (Nov 2018) Content from here on out will be a mystery unless otherwise arranged or mentioned in the tier.  

---SHIPPING and PATRONS LIVING OUTSIDE OF THE USA:
(Updated Nov 2018)
Shipping is now *INCLUDED* in BOTH the USA and INTERNATIONAL crazymail!! 
Now that I am only doing postcards and letters, it will not hurt me to send internationally at no extra charge!
