About Nico

Hi! I'm Nico. 

  • I write and perform poems
  • I print things, like zines, patches, and posters
  • I do all sorts of crafty stuff like woodburning, embroidery, crochet 
  • I host events and open mics for the queer community

I'm a big believer in do-it-yourself, and a bigger believer in do-it-with-the-love-and-support-of-others. 

Poetry
I'm a spoken word poet and performing artist. I perform poems on queerness, identity, body positivity, mental illness, and social justice. And quite a few love poems as well. 

I've competed in poetry slams, both individually and on teams. 

You can listen to my album here. Here's a video of me doing a poem here.

These days, I'm learning how to enjoy poetry again for its own sake and not care so much about it being perfect. As a patron, you can see some of my fresh and funky drafts. 

Crafts
I have a lot of miscellaneous hobbies, likely thanks to my ADHD. From pyrography and chainmaille to embroidery and crochet, I've been tempted by the siren song of many different mediums. These things can get pretty expensive so your contribution will allow me to continue my fun little habits. And depending on your patronage, I'd love to share a few with you as well. 

Printing
I love letterpress and screenprinting. It's one of the art forms I dabble in less, but I wish to do it more. One of my goals is to buy a tabletop press. Your contribution will help me achieve this goal. 

Why am I on patreon?
I'm hoping it will be a new avenue to cultivate artist-audience relationships, and take some of the work I've done to the web. I've only recently started to try and build an online presence for my work as my focus has been on my local community. 

Thank you for reading, and for your patronage! 
Goals
$45.24 of $50 per month
This amount of extra revenue will be so helpful for sustaining my printing projects! This will allow me to buy paper, fabric, and ink for decent runs of patches, posters, and zines!
