Hello and Welcome!
I'm Ellie Beck, a textile artist & creative maker. I work primarily with natural fibres, botanical dyes & an experimental process towards my practice. I'm self taught in my arts & crafting practice - and am keen to continue developing this process. I'm also a writer, with words & thoughts slipping from my mind. 

Why Patreon? Being an artist is in my blood, I couldn't not do it, but sometimes the process and the creating takes more time that the results of the outcome. My hope is that you see deep value in my work, and are in the situation to financially contribute to my practice. In exchange I've got lots of gifts as a way of expressing my immense gratitude

By having your support, I don't have to stress about the financial aspects of online marketing, or worrying about the bills being paid, and or my kids needing things. Being a self-employed artist (my husband is too!), means we put everything into what we make, yet sometimes don't get the financial stability needed as parents.

Who am I? I'm a creative maker and mama to 3. We live in the rainforest in Northern NSW, Australia. I teach online and in real life workshops, primarily in textiles and sustainable practices; Natural & Botanical Dye, Loom Weaving, Basket Weaving, Slow Stitch, etc...
I post daily beautiful, inspiring images to my Instagram account @petalplum, as well as words, tutorials, recipes and interviews to my blog. 
I'm also a big advocate of Slow, Intentional & Creative Living and share my viewpoint on this topic through my Instagram, blog, and newsletter. 

By supporting me and my family - you'll allow us to continue along this path of sharing our slow living life, our experiences being creatives, as well as living a sustainable life in the forest. I create workshops and events to bring a connectedness, I share thoughts and ideas on living a more full and natural life. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

UPDATE :: I have started work on a book that I *hope* I will be able to self-publish early next year. It is words, poetry of sorts, combined with my watercolours, and perhaps (I will see later down the track) if there is feeling / space for my photographs. Your Patreon support will help give me the time / financial space to dedicate to allowing the writing to evolve. 

With deep deep thanks, Ellie

Goals
55% complete
Reaching this goal will give a little more freedom to spend my two child-free days a week dedicating to writing, and exploring that aspect of my creative self. Having this small ease of financial strain will mean more time creating / writing & making, and less time having to work on other projects for an income. (I am currently our sole income-earner while my husband does house/studio/toilet-building stuff).
