Hi, My name is Dr Pamela Gay, and I want to tell the story of science.

For more then 10 years, I've been finding stolen moments to write essays, and to narrate my own words and those of others. Very rarely, I even find time to do art. I've realized that it is only when I make time to do make science and pursue creative projects that I I am truly happy and productive. This Patreon supports me working to make creative science communications a core part of my career. 

Who am I: I'm a PhD astrophysicist with experience in art, narration, and writing.

What I do: I create space-related content that explores the intersection of art and science. 

When you can expect content: I will work to create content a minimum of 3 times a week, and typically much more often. When not travelling, I paint planets on weekends and read and discuss science fiction novels every school night.

Where you can see my work: My content appears on starstryder.com, and on most social media platforms under the username starstryder. You can also purchase my art on Redbubble and Etsy.

Why I need your support: My day job in only part time, but it doesn't pay for much more than my phone and student loans. I'm seeking funding to pay for supplies, software, and other necessities that allow me to be a human who makes art.

At this price point I will share one painting a day. These will go live to Patrons at least 24 hours prior to when they are posted to social media. I will also read stories on Twitch on "school nights" when I am not travelling.
