Hello! I am a fantasy and scifi artist from Michigan.

My artwork stems from my love of nature and science, as well as folklore and mythology. I try to keep my style and subject matter somewhat varied, but I especially love painting dragons, unicorns, and other fantasy/scifi creatures, lush, delicate plant life, and exotic landscapes. I mostly work in watercolors, but I also use a bit of acrylic, gel pen, pencil, and Prismacolor marker sometimes. I'm hoping to get into doing some oil paintings in the near future if time, space, and money will allow it!

I've set up this Patreon page because I'm hoping to work my way towards being a full time artist. I love painting, and I'll continue to paint regardless of my profession, but art supplies, overhead, and the cost of living can be steep, and having a full time day job doesn't leave me with very much time to create. My bigger, more detailed paintings can take anywhere from 10 - 40 hours to create, and I hope to continue to be able to set aside enough time to create new pieces on at least a monthly basis. 


Where to find me:

Website -  Etsy -  FacebookKo-fi


How it works

I currently charge per month rather than per painting, as this takes a bit of pressure off of me to complete new pieces before the end of the month, so I am free to spend as much time as I need to work on larger, more complex pieces. Update frequency will vary, but I try to post sketches and/or WIPs at least twice per week.


Rewards!

All $1+ patrons gain access to early updates, early/exclusive access to store coupons, and first dibs on almost all original art and commission openings.



Other rewards include:


~ Other Patreon exclusive content includes: Sketches and studies. Access to a small library of exclusive content including digital coloring page downloads, painting walk throughs, and my personal collection of free to use art reference photos* which I will add to sporadically when time allows. In the future I hope to add process videos and livestreaming sessions.


*All photos taken by me, or by my husband

~Signed postcards featuring my artwork, a thank you note, and a quick sketch



~Patreon exclusive art prints

Leftover prints will very rarely be available to non Patrons via limited time charity events, leftovers are typically limited to only a few prints per piece. I may or may not hide or or two in a batch of grab bags from time to time, but this will be rare and randomized.



~Original Sketches, Doodles, Studies



Most physical rewards are mailed out bimonthly, as in every other month. This saves some money on shipping, so I can keep rewards more affordable for Patrons :)

Mailing months are: February, April, June, August, October, December. Physical rewards go out after the funds clear for those months.

International shipping currently costs me just over $13 ($10 canada) per small package. International Patrons may add $6.50 ($5 canada) to your pledge to cover bi monthly shipping fees. I can not ship until 2 months Patronage have been pledged. 


All $2 rewards plus:

~ Patreon exclusive print of the month Each month I will release a special edition print that will only be available to patrons (and, rarely, kickstarter backers). This will sometimes be a special edition version of a regularly available print, it may be larger than the publicly available version, or on a special paper, or embellished in some way to make it unique. Or it might be a piece that's unavailable as a print at all anywhere else! Most of these prints will measure 5"x7", but they may vary. Prints will be shipped out bimonthly with the postcards and art packs.

Goals
$207 of $1,500 per month
The previous goals covered overhead costs, art supplies, monthly art print orders, and enough extra for me to keep my day job limited to part time. If we can reach this last goal, that means...

No more day job! If my artwork becomes a reliable enough source of income, I can go full time! This means all the supplies I need, LOTS of time for practicing my technique, and way WAY more finished artwork! I will be able to complete a significant number of larger, more intricate pieces, on top of having one or a few smaller pieces done on a monthly basis. I can also branch out more and work on projects I've been wanting to start but don't have the time and/or money for; like starting my graphic novel (which I've wanted to do for years), sculpting and casting 3D art pieces, maybe even buying the equipment and having the time to learn how to cast metal jewelry.

At this level it will also be much easier for me to attend art shows and conventions, as I won't need to worry about getting time off from my day job, I'll have no shortage of new pieces to make available as prints, I'll have plenty of prints in stock, and I can more often afford the high costs associated with attending conventions and art exhibits, which can be a big gamble if they aren't successful.
