About Mink Taylor

WELCOME!

First Time Visiting? Check out my intro video and browse the "free posts" category on the left for sample content.

MISSION/VISION

My vision is to inspire deepening connections between people and the natural world through my art.  

That can manifest in a variety of ways: a painting that honours a special connection between the human and more-than-human world... a song with lyrics and melodies that speak to our collective wildness.

Deep inside, I burn for the possibility of re-imagining communities that support our artists, storytellers, musicians, creators.

Growing up, I was always encouraged to follow my passions. Still, people often warned me that it's very difficult to make it as an artist. They were right. For this reason, I avoided pursuing art professionally for many years.

Ultimately, my need for artistic expression won the battle! This is the creative gift I was meant to share with the world. Thanks to all of your individual donations, I am now able to put more time than ever into my art! 

I would like to see the cultural narrative around being an artist change for good. 

I want to be able to tell the artistic youth in my life to "GO FOR IT!!" knowing that they too, will be supported along the way.

Deepest gratitude to you for landing here, and helping me to create this vision for the future. Whether or not you can make a monetary contribution, know that just by visiting this page (and especially passing it on) you have already supported me along my path. Thank you! 


HOW PATREON PLEDGES WORK

My Patreon page works on a per creation basis. Each time I release a "paid post" creation, you will be charged the amount that you pledged. I try to release 2 per month.  

Not every post is a "paid post". Some of the content I release is totally free! Sometimes I make paid content accessible to the public as well.

Reward Tiers: I have created a set of awesome rewards to thank you for your patronage, based on the amount you pledge! That said, please reach out to me personally if there's a reward you'd like that is beyond your means.

You can set up your payments via paypal, card, or direct withdrawal.

Setting a "monthly limit"
 will put a cap on how much you contribute monthly, no matter how much I create. You will still have access to content within your tier.

VOCAL PERFORMING MIC

The types of microphones used for performing and recording are very different. I have a "usable" mic for performing... but at the time I didn't know much and I basically bought myself the most affordable thing I could find. It tends to make all of my words sound kind of muffled and blah.

Performing at Hi-Fi Fusion I got to borrow a friend's vocal mic which was much nicer quality. I fell in love with the immediately improved sound, which was crisper and complimented my vocal range. I'd like to pick something like this up for myself, so that I can book gigs independently with equipment that will reliably help me to sound my best! I also need to be practicing with the same equipment I am using to perform.
