Hello! It's lovely to have you visit my Patreon page.

Patreon is a membership platform that means you can join my art community and you'll receive rewards in return. Patreon's CEO Jack Conte explains the concept of joining Patreon fabulously - click here to see him talk about it.

I also have an aim to make it easier for you to own my artwork if you see something you'd like to own and have in your home in a way that's affordable and totally flexible for you - and I reckon that between us, we can use Patreon to make that happen. Read on my lovelies:

What do I create?

I mainly create cloudscapes and landscapes in either soft pastels or oil paints - inspired by the stunning vistas on and above the Isle of Skye, UK. It's my aim to capture what you see and what you feel when you look up at a mesmerising sky, or out at a beautiful landscape. 

You know when you look up and see the most gorgeous sunset you've ever seen? Remember how that feels, where you were, who you were with, and most importantly, that sense of wonder at how something so amazing could just form all by itself? That's my inspirational aim: to paint pictures that combine what I see with how I feel when I see it. You can see my latest work by looking at my posts as you scroll further down this page or head to the posts section.

I write blogposts after finishing each painting. Some of those form in my head whilst I'm working on the picture, but mostly they arrive out of my fingers onto the keyboard just as I'm reflecting on the piece. I usually derive the name of the painting from those blogposts (that's why some of them sound a little peculiar sometimes). I publish the blogposts here on Patreon and on my website. These are some of the paintings from earlier this year:

There's lots of other ways I create paintings - figurative art, abstracts and small detailed ink works. All help the creative flow. I believe that you have to keep the creative muscle flexed and grown in a variety of methods.

How does Patreon fit in with that?

I see Patreon working in a combination of ways:

1) Patreon is a way for your to become a member of my art community. You can gain access to all my art updates and lots of other lovely goodies depending on which tier you select, whilst also making it possible for me to carry on painting. I have a dream of having the freedom to create whatever and wherever I'd like, without being constrained by the location or time demands of others. I'm pretty driven to work intensively without external pressures - when those are released, that's a whole burst of energy that I can use for painting and drawing.

2) I also see Patreon as a way for you to pay for any paintings by me in instalments. You see, my philosophy is simple: if you love one of my paintings or drawings, I see it as my role to help you enjoy it in your home as soon as you like. There's no interest accrued or anything, in fact you receive benefits for being a member. It's a win-win situation: you pay as you choose to and I get to know that one of my paintings has reached it's home. You can choose one of the pre-set membership levels or set one of your own to suit what you have going on in your life. There's no timeframe constraints, reminders or hassle - and I totally trust you to pay the amount. If you want to carry on being a member after you've paid for your painting (at the same or different amount) then I'm obviously completely fine with that, if not, then that's ok too. If you have questions just ask me, you can email me here: [email protected].

Yes, the idea is based on trust - we're all intelligent, socially conscious people and frankly I think we could all use a little more trust in the world. This is my small step in encouraging genuine community and kindness amongst people.

That's my dream and I love being an artist - and would be delighted if you'd help me to achieve my dreams in whichever way you'd like. If you choose to pledge, I would be utterly thrilled for you to join my community.

You can see the rewards for each level of pledging on the right of the screen - if there's anything else that you think would be great then please let me know. I'd be happy to incorporate anything that's workable.

Thank you for reading - and for considering being a Patron, Lynne
