I am Rebecca Collins and I am a mixed media artist in Dallas Texas. For 20 years I have been creating commission pet portraits for a devoted fan base at artpaw.com. Back in 2015 I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and my creative life was turned upside down. For a solid year all I could do was keep up with Art Paw, while slowly scaling back my marketing efforts. After a lot of soul searching I realized that I need to be making the art I want to make. I adore my 4 legged commission clients and will never abandon them but the volume I was doing prior to my illness left very little time for glass mosaics, and for teaching. So my focus has shifted and I am currently looking to advance my teaching skills and reach out to a larger audience here on Patreon. And yes, I do still take on the occasional pet portrait, but that schedule is limited.

Becoming a Patron
As a patron you can pledge any amount you want each month and in return I will provide you with exclusive video lessons and tips only available to see here. You can cancel a pledge at any time and if you don't want to pledge you can follow my public posts here, I will continue to provide tons of free content.

What's In It For You?

Goals
$16 of $300 per month
When I reach $300 per month I am going to invest in a printing press for the studio. I share my studio with my husband Dan Collins and we both like to dabble with printmaking. Currently we have an ancient proof press that weighs like a hundred pounds. It is a lovely piece of history, however there are more efficient machines on the market for printing. This financial goal will not cover the cost of a new press but it will give me confidence that this Patreon thing is working.
