About Courtney Buckland

ABOUT: Hello! I'm Courtney, an artist currently living in Joshua Tree, California. I moved here in the spring of 2017 and immersing myself in this environment and community has been pivotal in connecting themes in my work and formulating new concepts for future projects. 

I work across multiple mediums and platforms, though my most common mediums are works on paper and digital collage - collages of all types, really. I draw a lot, and I paint with a lot of gouache and watercolor as of late. I also like to try my hand at creating 3D pieces, sculpture and art objects. 

Many of these pieces include aspects of feminism and social activism. Since moving to the Mojave desert, imagery from high desert life has also influenced my work. I also think the accessibility of art, whether by sharing what I am working on and my thoughts behind it or by way of affordable pricing, is very important.  

This is where you can take a look at what I make! (well, in addition to scrolling through posts here) You can click on an image to expand the project. 

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT MY WORK? Patreon is a platform that allows creators to continue making the work you love. By supporting your favorite artists, you're allowing them to both pay their bills AND constantly improve by: purchasing supplies, taking a class to expand my knowledge, hosting in-person community gatherings, or financing a large-run product like an enamel pin or zine. Think of yourself as a business investor and a patron of the arts!

Donate because you see value in what I do. Donate because you want to become a vital component of this community.
Know that your donation will also be helping out in a HUGE WAY. Every little bit is appreciated, and I will continue to do my best to create work that speaks to our shared values.

WHAT WE'VE DONE SO FAR: Each month of my first year of Patreon, I selected a cause, issue or current event that moves me, angers me, stuns me, or makes me proud. I decide on the topic, make a hand-drawn postcard, and address and stamp one for each patron to write and send. Collectively, we have written more than 100 postcards in this first year and have spoken up about: gun violence, immigration, women’s reproductive healthcare rights, police brutality, and the opioid epidemic. We have also sent words of thanks and appreciation to women in Congress, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and first responders of 2018 mass shootings.

Take a look at this post for a 'year one' recap!You can also check out my blog, where I post about all sorts of things related to my artistic inspirations and life in the desert. 

Thank you for making what I do possible!
