I created the painting I'm holding above, with acrylic paint on canvas. I paint the sides of my paintings so they can be hung without a frame if desired.

Hello and Welcome
You're here! Thank you so much for taking this step to learn more about my artwork. I am a visual artist painting abstract landscapes in an ongoing exploration of my dreams. I work out of my studio in Bellingham, Washington. I enjoy taking inspiration from nature and space as well as what I see and experience when I'm sleeping. My artwork explores the themes of identity, dreams, introspection and empathy. It's a joy to use a mix of mediums to paint vivid dreamscapes. My favored medium though is oil paint that I mix by hand using natural pigments from the Earth.

Patreon
Patreon is a great platform that allows you to become a patron of the arts and receive rewards for doing so. You can decide how to show your support by choosing which tier you join at. I appreciate your support more than you could know. It keeps me going and gives me more time in the art studio. It's my dream to support myself fully on my art. You are helping that dream become a reality.


I enjoy sharing my art with the awesome Bellingham community through exhibits and art events such as the Downtown Bellingham Art Walk.

Goals
Your continued support is helping me attain my goals including:
  • Videos! I'd like to make time-lapse art videos which will allow you to see my process. It would be my pleasure to give you a look at my studio and share my latest painting ideas.
  • Improved Studio! I need lighting and shelving in the studio. You can help me make the art studio a better working environment.
  • A Gold Tier! Recently, I discovered how fun it is to make pet portraits. I'd like to offer these to my patrons at an exclusive new tier.
  • Healthcare! Let's be real. It's not easy to make a living creating art. Your support makes a real difference to the lives of my family.

Tiers

  • Patreon-only Blog Post Access
  • Original Artist Trading Cards
  • Prints
  • Wallpaper Backgrounds
  • Original Oil Paintings
If you'd rather pass on the physical art rewards, that's fine. When you join, you can donate at any amount and I'll provide you with digital updates from the studio.


Here's an example of an Original Artist Trading Card that you'll get from me when you join at the green tier.

Thank you for being a part of my art journey!

Each month at the Purple Tier you can look forward to a hand painted abstract art piece composed on handmade paper with a variety of mediums. The painting will be around 6 x 10 inches. I might use watercolor, ink, charcoal, oil, acrylic paints and/or soft pastels to create a painting that is entirely unique and just for you. I hand mix my oil paints with natural pigments from the earth. It takes time but the resulting colors are radiant.

 + all the previous benefits

Prismatic
$684 or more per month

You are a rainbow of shimmering color! You are an All-Star Patron of The Arts. You are not just keeping the lights on in the art studio. You're giving me the means to work big. You're enabling me to contribute meaningfully to the art community. You are allowing me to truly realize my potential as a professional artist.


At the ultimate Prismatic Tier you get a beautiful oil painting that's ready to hang in your personal gallery or maybe over your couch. Every. Single. Month. The size and composition will be a surprise but always in my abstract expressionist style (and always more than 16 inches in height or width). If you'd like to, you can request a particular color be included on my palette. By guiding the color choices you can be sure it'll look great in your home, office or another special space.


I hand mix my oil paints with natural pigments from the earth. It takes time but the resulting colors are absolutely radiant. When your painting is complete, I apply a gallery-approved varnish which seals the painting and protects it against aging. It's my hope that it will encourage reflection and provide daily inspiration to you and yours.


This exclusive tier is limited to 2 patrons a month. This way I can give most of my attention to your new painting. When you become a Prismatic Supporter, you'll get all of the previous benefits as well.

Goals
0 of 10 patrons
When we build this art-loving community to 10 patrons, I'll be able to pick up a tripod for my camera. This opens up a world of new possibilities! I'll be able to take time-lapse videos and share my art-making process with you.
