I am a science illustrator and natural history artist working in Alaska. I want to share the beauty and stories of the natural world with you here. You can travel along with me as I explore the forests, rivers, tundra, and glaciers around my home. I started this Patreon page to connect with supporters in new ways and to connect you with the places that I love. I will share field sketches, illustrations, as well as stories and discoveries as I research and learn about the natural world. 

Any level of support makes a big difference to me. I live off a modest income from my art, illustration, and teaching in an off-the-grid cabin on the Nizina River, outside McCarthy, Alaska. Your support enables me to spend time embracing and learning about this place and to make work to share with you. At lower levels, I will create digital content - blog posts, tutorials, and downloads. At higher levels, I will send you things in the mail.

All Digital Content-

Get access to all of the digital content, including PDFs of my sketchbook zines, tutorials, and herbal recipes. Each month I'll share a recipe or recipe template for using the herbs and wild plants. The recipes will include a printable PDF and use herbs and wild Alaskan plants that I find growing near my home in McCarthy.

This is a wonderful way to support my work and get something in the mail from me once a month. In addition to the content above, I'll send you a postcard, or a small print of recent work.


Often I'll send more that one thing. But it will be a surprise in a flat envelope.

Receive creative mail from me every month. Every other month this will be in the form of a sketchbook zine. Alternating months will receive a mini-version of my CSA share. Items might include artwork, art making supplies, or herbal creations. 


You will also have access to all online content.

Each month I'll send you a CSA (Community Supported Art) box. Every other month this will include a sketchbook zine. Alternating months will receive other art prints or publications instead of the zine. In addition to printed artwork I'll include herbal creations, art making supplies, and other surprises and inspiration. Each month will have a theme and reflect a place.

Thank you so much for supporting me at this level! You will receive a full CSA share, an original work of art, and my sincere gratitude. I look forward to working with you and creating custom artwork. If you pledge at this level for multiple months we can work out a series of works, or combine months to commission a larger work. This level includes:
  • An original work of art (8.5 x 11") commission of a natural history subject (plant, animal, mineral, map) of your choice
  • A full CSA share (see Nizina River level)
  • All online content

Every patron makes a big difference to me and allows me to spend more time creating art and content for this community. When I get 10 patrons a month I will be able to add more posts and tutorials each month. Let me know what content you would like the most! Field sketching tutorials, more herbal recipes, more of my own sketches and artwork, other art tutorials...?
