What I do
I'm an oil painter in Vancouver, BC. My studio is in the Arts Factory, just off Main & Broadway. I mainly create figurative work, but also dabble in colour studies. My full portfolio is located on my website. My work revolves around sex, memory, trauma, and identity through the lens of social media. I'm fascinated by manipulating colour to evoke different reactions in my viewer.

Why Patreon?
While I'm extremely grateful for the popularity I gained during 2016 through Instagram, I started to become dissatisfied and frustrated with my art practice feeling overly commercial. I spent most of 2017 feeling lost and confused about why I even make art. I finally settled on a series of work I'm excited to create. I've been on Patreon since 2014 (whoa!) during my undergrad at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and it feels like an appropriate platform to make work I am passionate about on a continuous basis.

A little about Patreon
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform designed to help compensate creatives for the content they are already producing. Unlike Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Patreon is a recurring donation in smaller increments, designed like a tip for the work that you love.

When I create a painting, you're pledging to tip $1, $5, $10, (etcetera) per month I create work. In exchange you get small rewards.

Patreon only processes your charges on the first day of every month. Not interested in an ongoing pledge but still want to help? My donation page is here.

Answers to your possible questions
  • I'm working on a large series where I'll be producing as much work as possible in a short period of time. Instead of charging per painting, I'm charging per month. The same will stay as I produce less work on a monthly basis.
  • Yes, I will answer all your questions.
  • You get rewards after your pledge has been processed. If you pledge on January 5th, you aren't charged until February 1st. During the first week of February, Patreon lets me know your pledge has been successful, and then I send out/order/create your rewards.
  • Yes, my paintings are for sale. My paintings are fairly affordable and the smaller works are within $250-500. I also sell my colour studies for the cost of material + labour.
  • Yes, you can change or cancel your pledge amount at any time!
  • Yes, I named my rewards after some of m6 favourite paint colours.

  • If you have any other questions regarding how to use Patreon, tweet at Cole!

Goals

I get all my business cards printed through MOO. They have superb quality and for an artist, it helps that they allow you to put a different image on each card. Business cards will help me grow my career as an artist.
