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:

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.
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
