Thank you for visiting my Patreon page and welcome to the adventure! I create one-of-a-kind resin and acrylic art, gaming gear and accessories primarily for use in tabletop gaming. I also teach art, design, and crafting to anyone with the desire to learn.

First off, a little bit about me. I've been an artist for as long as I can remember and a working artist and designer for over 10 years. I studied art and design at the undergrad and graduate level and I've taught art, design, and crafting to a wide range of people from complete novices to experienced creators. I was also born and bred into the addicting world of fantasy lore and Dungeons and Dragons. In 2017, I decided to put my two loves together to create dice boxes, dice trays, handmade dice and gaming storage for use in table top gaming and RPGs and Sunshadeau (pronounced 'sun shadow') Arts was born! In September of 2018 I launched my first successful Kickstarter for The Adventure Line of Bespoke Gaming Storage and took my first steps into being a creator full time. 

Join the Adventure
Just as great gaming requires other players, being an independent artist and maker takes a village. Every pledge helps me work towards creating full time and passing on to others the massive amount of art and design knowledge floating around in my brain. But you aren't just supporting me as an artist, you are helping to build a teaching, learning, and creating community.

The Sunshadeau Arts Academy
The one thing that was very important to me when I created this Patreon, was to find a way to pass on the things I've learned to others, to create a space for artists and makers to learn and grow. Whether you are a newbie to art and crafting or your are a veteran looking for a tip, I hope we can work together to foster creativity and make some really cool stuff in the process!

I firmly believe that the more makers and artists in the world, the better. I want everyone interested in creating to have access to the resources necessary to get started. So I hope the tutorials here will be the learning resource to someone else that I wish I had had when I started out. And that is just the beginning. If enough adventurers join the quest, there's no telling how far we can go to creating a learning and making resource for all.

Yeah, I have big dreams.

Rewards
If you choose to join the adventure, there is great loot to be found! Whether you are interested in behind-the-scenes content, you want to learn how to make your own items (like dice!), or you're out for exclusive Patreon only creations, there is a tier for you. Since your pledge allows me to continue experimenting and creating new items, as a patron you get first dibs on the latest creations and in some cases, completely exclusive items that won't be sold in my shop. Your pledge also makes it possible for me to create the Sunshadeau Arts Academy content and share my art and crafting tutorials with the world.

The adventure has begun! Will you answer the call?
