patrons

Hi there! Welcome to my Patreon!

My goal with this Patreon Page is to bring you behind the scenes on this new project from the start. I've been inspired to create this series of figurative oil paintings in a theatrical setting called Theatre of Duelists.

A little about me...
I am a contemporary representational painter from Canada and currently living in Germany. I love creating and feel most alive when painting, primarily oil painting. Inspired by many 19th century  masters like JW Waterhouse, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Frederic Lord Leighton and the like. 



“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.”―Oscar Wilde


Inspired by histories of actual female duels, I then expounded on that idea by imagining these would be set as a re-telling for a theatre play or opera. What has typically been regarded as a masculine art, I was fascinated to find the actual recorded events of female duels, some rather famous and spectacular. Including one famous one between a princess and a duchess where they both fought topless. There are also tales of women dueling men which I may explore as well.

<h5>Becoming a Patron</h5> As a patron you can pledge any amount you want each month and in return you will be able to receive the first look at new work I am creating personally, for galleries, as well as the art I do for clients. 
 
I want to share with you more than just first glimpses at the new work I am creating, but I hope to share insight into more of my thought processes behind these ideas as well as share other aspects of my life as an artist from my creative inspiration, to running an art business, as well as technical tricks and materials.

One of the things that brings me the most joy is when my work inspires someone. I love knowing that my own passion can inspire other people to find and succeed in their own passions as well. If my work inspires you to write, draw, paint and create that makes me happy.



Videos

One of the things I have wanted to do is to make time lapse and other videos for you of my painting process. This has been tricky for me as I am rather new to working while filming and can be awkward to paint with a camera in front of me. I am excited to start, and with this Patreon, I want to create videos for you. I'd love to be able to share a more in-depth view of some of my processes.

Another benefit of being a patron will be access to some of the raw sketches and stages of my painting. As an artist on social media, I find I am reluctant to post all stages of the painting process. Most of what we show on Facebook or Instagram is viewed not only by artists, but by potential clients, galleries, and publishers. As such, I tend to show less of the painting process especially when a painting is in "the ugly phase" or those less than photogenic steps that nevertheless might reveal a lot about the thought process and decisions that go into the creation. With this Patreon I would like to take you behind the scenes and give you first glimpses of the work as it's being created.
