Hello there! I'm Steph!

A huge "welcome" to my Patreon visitors and future supporters! I'm an experienced illustrator and storyboard artist who also dabbles in writing, streaming and a million other artistically geeky things.

I'm currently in my mid-30s and have struggled for years with balancing working for pay (Supervisor at large hotel chain, cashier at museum gift shop, daycare worker, office manager and hr person for a growing health tech company in Boston) and my passions (illustrating, storyboarding, story telling, writing). It took a move to the big city (from West Virginia to Boston), with thousands of "9-5" opportunities in front of me, to realize what I really wanted. So, I dropped out of the world of office management and hotels and call centers to embrace the pieces of me that, until now, I had only considered as my part-time job.

It was time to take my art full-time.

Unfortunately, I also have necessary monthly expenses. Currently, I'm working on giving my storyboarding business a pulse (after sitting dorment for over a year due to the "9-5") and working towards a few goals that should come into fruition in 2-3 years. But I could always use the helping hand. Which is why I'm opening my world to my friends, family and to anyone else who cares to pledge and join!

What you'll get: a view into my creative space. Access to my Discord channel, supporter-only creative streams and a weekly update. Higher tiers of support get perks that may include a commissioned digital illustration, working your likeness into my commissioned storyboards among many other possibilities that will be revealed soon.

I'm asking for your support as I make this transition, and want to provide you with the satisfaction in knowing that your money is not going to waste. Your investing in me, as an artist and a creator, and I want to be the best artist and creator I can be.

Give me the chance to prove you right and all of the naysayers wrong.
Join me and let's create.
