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.

All $2 rewards plus:


~ Original Art - Patrons may choose from a small selection of available originals, one piece per pledge month. I will not be taking requests, but I will have more pieces than pledgers, so there will be choices. Available pieces will mostly be 2.5"x3.5" ACEO paintings, but I may list slightly larger mini paintings from time to time. Refined drawings and finished inked pieces may also be offered on occasion - these will be extra choices - I will always have more than enough paintings for Patrons to choose from if that is what they prefer.


~ Packages will include the Patreon exclusive print(s) of the month


Packages will go out every other month.

Reliable part time art income!

I work part time right now, and art income can be hit or miss month to month. It's going ok at the moment, but a steady source of art derived income would help ensure that I can keep my day job hours on the low end (about 2 days a week), so I can continue to spend a solid chunk of time working on new artwork.
