About Sara Burrier

Hiya! I'm Sara and I'm obsessed with watercolor!

Drawing, painting, and teaching are my passion. If I could, it's all I would ever do! 

But the Reality is...

I'm a mom of two small kiddos. They take up A LOT of time, and I am definitely grateful I get to stay home with them all day. Yet, this, for me, is exhausting mentally and physically. Being an art mom is very challenging, especially if you aren't type A. I did a lot of research on how to be the best art mom, and to my dismay, there wasn't a whole lot to read. 

What I Did

I have tried to be just an artist on Patreon, Instagram, and Facebook.
With lots of ideas for posts, rewards, campaigns, etc. there was so much to do and so much stress to be had. I have become a troll in my house. I would stay up too late to work, but then be annoyed and tired first thing in the early morning to my family. I tried to work during the down times during the day, but fell asleep from my exhaustion, getting nothing done. I let the house go, making chores second or third, or even fourth in the to-do list....but the clutter got difficult to navigate through. Then I felt guilty that I didn't do what I said I would do in regards to my work life. In the end, no one won, everyone got let down, including me. Being a creative mind doesn't always work well with parenting. I feel pulled in multiple directions at once...and I wasn't gifted with Type A abilities.

What I'm Going to Do

I am going to post about living as a creative mom day to day.
I want to discuss the challenges, the bonus', family projects, my client based work, and the ways I find balance as mom and as an artist. A collective spot to hopefully inspire other art moms, to discuss life as an artist and as a mom, to share possible solutions to problems, and to create a hub of support for other creative moms. This is a chapter in my life, and once both kiddos are in school, I know it will change. But for the next couple of years, this is it.

Why Support Me?

Unfortunately, being a full time mom sans part time artist means very little art business to create income for my expenses. I still display and sell at art shows, display my work online, purchase art supplies, and purchase product to sell at art shows. Your support keeps my work afloat in the world.
Your funds will go towards:
  • Website hosting/domain fees
  • Art show booth fees
  • Painting supplies
  • Prints, books, calendars, etc. to sell at shows
  • Travel/Lodging expenses for art shows
  • COFFEE!

Your Return

Thank you for reading this far, for your interest, and for your continued support whether it's through Patreon, social media, or even a hug when I meet you in person. 
What I offer you:
  • Insight of an art mom and her daily life
  • Time lapse videos of my works
  • Work in progress shots
  • Updates on shows
  • Product when available
  • Exclusive sketches

Goals
$322 of $400 per month
Start a monthly video series teaching watercolor & drawing.

I shine most when teaching something I love and watch others grow in that too. My vision for this goal is to provide a YouTube channel exclusively for teaching videos.

All patreons pledging $10 or more will have access to this goal once reached!

The YouTube channel would focus on beginner and intermediate watercolor and drawing. As those two do go hand in hand. I will teach from my already published book How to Draw and Paint Watercolor Fairies, and teach from my 14 years of past objectives.
