Hi there!

My name is Monica Carvalho, I’m a Swiss-born digital artist based in Berlin. I am passionate about creating images that make you look twice! I challenge myself to look at ordinary things from a new perspective, with this motto in mind: to make the ordinary extraordinary! My artistic process is to combine photos from my travels and everyday life to produce surreal “photomontages”: alternate realities that aim to inspire you and make you to look at the world differently!

My dream is to be able to make a living off my art. However, it is hard to have time to be creative when the job that pays the bills is not making your art but something completely unrelated. This is one of two reasons why I turned to Patreon. The second reason is to connect with you! I have an amazingly supportive audience, but social media algorithms and the commenting/direct messaging systems make it difficult to connect with my fans. Patreon provides the space where you and I can talk and where I can share more "behind-the-scenes” content.

HOW PATREON WORKS
Patreon is a platform that allows you to financially support artists you love so that they can carry on creating content you love. Therefore, if my art inspires you and you take enjoyment in seeing it, you can join my exclusive community for as little as a $2 per month (less than the price of one coffee a month!), so I can keep posting awesome photomontages online and offer you EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!

YOUR BENEFITS AS A PATRON
My Instagram page will always be free, but if you want to have access to the behind-the-scenes of my artworks, participate in giveaways, or you simply would like to support me as an artist, this is the place to be! Here are your rewards as a patron:

  • Early access: see my new photomontages before they are posted on social media!
  • Backstage content: detailed "behind-the-scenes” + speed edits of my photomontages!
  • Giveaways: win stickers, postcards & signed limited-edition prints!
  • Q&A sessions: have a specific question about my artistic process, Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom? Ask here and I will happily answer!

WHY YOUR CONTRIBUTION IS PRECIOUS
Because I make my living through part time jobs like waitressing, my passion for creating photomontages often gets side-lined in favour of these jobs that pay the bills. I would like to work full-time as an artist, and YOU can help me to do that! Your generous support here on Patreon will make creating my artworks possible without having to spend most of my time at jobs unrelated to my artistic activities. All the contributions I get from this page will go directly to things like paying my rent and health insurance. In a nutshell, you will provide me with the freedom to focus more time on my art, which is what is most exciting for me to do and for you to see!

If you do choose to support me financially here on Patreon, you are basically enabling me to live my dream. If you’re not interested or can’t afford the monthly pledge, there’s absolutely no obligation to get involved - I am already so happy to have your support on Instagram and Facebook.

Thanks a million!

Love,
Monica xx
