Mae govannen!

Welcome! If you’ve stumbled upon this realm, and you don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself.
My name is Sarah and I’m an independent artist currently wandering the wooded hills of Scotland. My passion is painting the beautiful scenery I come across, especially forests. My business name is Sarah Burns Studio.

I usually use graphite, watercolor, gouache, and occasionally oil and acrylic and digital. I guess you could say I love it all! I’m also a photographer, and take lots of reference photos to share with other artists!

I stream my art live on Twitch, M/T/W/Th, at Twitch.tv/SarahBurnsStudio, which is also where I teach my monthly paintalong tutorials!  (See below)

How does Patreon work?
It’s like a subscription service for art lovers!
If you like my work and want to paint with me, support me, have a look inside my sketchbooks, ask me questions, get reference photos, etc., this is a great way to support me.
Don't worry, you can edit or cancel your pledge anytime you want.
By pledging a monthly amount, you are not only supporting me, but you also receive lots of cool rewards (depending on which tier you choose)! Have a look for yourself!

The support I receive from my Patreon family helps me grow as an artist. It means I don’t have to take on as many commissions to pay the bills, which gives me more time to pursue my goals. Time is a valuable resource and my Patreons play an active role in making my dream a reality. Each day I wake up with a fire in my heart, excited to create something new.

Please note that I will occasionally update my rewards based on what I feel will suit my supporters. I don’t do it often (once a year, maybe) and I always give everyone plenty of notice first!


What are Freedom Trees?
Freedom Trees is a personal campaign to help me overcome my crushing student loan debt ($650 per month). I pour my heart and soul intro creating beautiful forest artwork (my favorite subject) in hopes that it will inspire people to go outside and enjoy this magical world. Every dollar from my Patreon and sales from my Freedom Tree collection goes towards paying my student loans. Any extra amount I receive each month will be used to make a bigger payment which will eventually lead to a smaller monthly payment and more freedom. Paying my student loans is my biggest hurdle as an independent artist, and my Patreons have been helping me for over four years! You can read more about my Freedom Tree campaign here.



These tutorials are catered towards any skill level but especially beginners. I mostly teach watercolor and we do a variety of landscapes. My Patreons receive the final full-length Paintalong tutorial videos so they can pause, rewind, and practice for however long they want.


You can find more info about Paintalongs (including a supply list) on my website.




My 2019 Goals:
  • Finish Kalina book (As of January 2019, the first draft is 50% complete, but it's very hard to devote time to it)
  • Get my artwork into at least two gallery shows
  • Vend at least three art fairs
  • Continue to grow as an artist (of course!)

Discord Chat:
My Patreons are welcome to join me in our private Discord chat server where we can have daily discussions! Feel free to share your art, photos of your cat, or ask questions. It’s also where I do the critiques for $5+ Patreons.

Thank you for reading, and I hope to talk to you soon!

Goals
$519 of $650 per month
HOLY COW! Thank you!!!
Meeting this goal means that my student loan payment is covered this month, which gives me more time to focus on art and creating content for you all!

If we hit this goal:
  • I will create at least one full length Patreon-exclusive tutorial based on your requests! It will be up to two hours in length, in whatever mediums you request, answering your questions and doing demos of whatever you want.
  • If we continue to meet this goal, this will be a monthly video.
  • And of course, I will also continue to do a monthly live Paintalong tutorials!
