I'm an artist living on the northernmost edge of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Yes, it's beautiful and inspiring and I'm living the creative dream, but it's also remote and there aren't very many tourists who buy paintings in the longer winter months. Your patronage enables me to spend time working in my studio and time writing about painting and creativity, as well as ensuring I can keep the studio cats get fed and kept warm.

If you've searched online on how to paint, you've likely come across one of the articles in the 12 years I wrote for what used to be Painting.About.com (now called Thought Co.). By being a patreon, you'll help me write similar -- and better -- content. Simply put, your participation is vital to this effort.

Working on the "it all adds up" principle, if you pledge the price of a cup of coffee a month, this adds hours I can spend writing and photographing articles (and even video if my rural broadband ever gets upgraded ). What's great about Patreon is that it's on-going support, so if you think "I could afford $25-ish to help out," then you select the $2 a month pledge and it gets spread out over a year.
