Hi, My name is Shayda Campbell and I'm an artist. It used to be really difficult for me to use that word in reference to myself. Artist. It sounds big and important and boastful. A title reserved for someone who's showing their giant paintings in a European gallery. But lately I've been attempting to reclaim that word. And I admit, it's gotten easier for me as I've seen my YouTube channel grow. You, my subscribers, you've given me credibility. You've also given me the most wonderful positivity and support. I thank you so much for that. And if there's one thing, in addition to my tutorials, that I want to give, it's to extend that creditability back to you. Because if you love art, if you make art, then you should be called an artist. 

I've always been a creative person. I love painting, drawing, photography and hand lettering. I'm also into knitting and leather working and candy making. If I can make it by hand and make it pretty, I'll probably give it a try at some point. And as I've crafted my way through life, I've found that one of the best and most direct ways to find beauty and meaning in the things that surround me everyday is to be involved in the process of their creation.

So at the heart of my YouTube channel is this idea; that making the artifacts of our everyday life, things like cookies, calendars or greeting cards, into things of beauty, is an important task. It's up-lifting. First because the process of creativity is so wonderful, and second, because it's just lovely to be surrounded by lovely things. With this idea in mind, I've tried my best to make my channel a calm, inspirational space where you can approach the basics of hand lettering, watercolour painting and many other crafts. There are so many benefits to everyday creativity. I hope you'll grab a paint brush and join me. Because if you're making art, you're an artist!

The main reason that I've joined Patreon is to offer more content to you. Many of you have asked about purchasing my work, and I've thought a lot about how I would like to offer my art for sale. The idea behind the Patreon site very much appeals to me because when you give a little, you get a lot. I've set up my Patreon with only one tier, so for $2 a month, you'll get access to ALL the digital files of the art that I produce on the channel. With these jPEGs/vectors/PNGs you can print your own calendar, Christmas cards or watercolor painting. You'll have FULL access to the channel artwork. Thank you for your support.
