Art Lover: Collector

per month
A wise art collecting friend believes that investing in the work of living artists is investing in the fabric of our society. I believe it too. I want my paintings to communicate a bit of light, love, and empathy. Using meager tools, in the visual language I know best, is the most I can hope to accomplish in life.

I could not do what I do without you! I’m eternally grateful for the support I’ve had from wonderful collectors over the years. And here's another chance to thank you.
  • A small, original commissioned piece of art, or choose from a select group of available works on the anniversary of your support.* Your choice! (8x10, 9x12 size range)
  • Exclusive sneak peeks of fresh-off-the-easel work for early purchase opportunities.
  • A yearly art calendar of my work.
  • 10% discount on commissions and regular priced work on my website or through private message.

Plus all rewards from Artists and Students tier.

*Free domestic shipping, I will contact you with international shipping info

About Terry Strickland Art

Hello! Welcome to my Patreon page!

This is a dual-purpose PATREON page for artists who want to learn my painting techniques and process, and for collectors who’d get exclusive sneak peeks of new paintings, enjoy insights into my creative process, and other perks.

This online experience is designed in the spirit of my in-person classes and workshops. The instruction will be comprehensive, covering every stage of my painting process, as well as igniting your creativity. Together we’ll build a supportive art sharing community. The subject matter will be diverse including figurative work, portraiture, still life, and florals.

You should become my patron if…
  • You are a beginning artist and want to learn to draw and paint.
  • You are an experienced artist and want to take your skills to the next level.
  • You are looking for inspiration and community.
  • You are a collector who would like seeing fresh-off-the easel work first, enjoy gaining insight into my creative processdiscounts, and perks.

How often do patrons get charged?

Once per month.
For an overview of how Patreon works in general, they’ve got a great primer HERE to explain it.

A little bit about me:
     My realistic paintings begin as personal inspirations and narratives that are translated with oil paint into universal stories. There is one constant in my work as I explore life's transitions: a search for human connection and empathy, often bolstered by my model's compelling gaze.
     I grew up in Florida and now reside in the Birmingham Metro Area, AL, US. I teach classes and workshops throughout the Southeast, and at The Florence Studio, Italy. My paintings are exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the US. I was a speaker for a TEDx talk in 2016 that you can find on YouTube. The Incognito Project book about my portrait series was published in 2012.
