Tiffany Francis is creating Environmental Art & Writing

patrons

Hello! My name is Tiffany, and I'm a 26-year-old author, artist & environmentalist from the South Downs in Hampshire, UK. 

Inspired by the natural world, I spend my time writing and painting in the hope that I can empower others to care about the planet as much as I do.

Like so many people, I spent early adulthood wanting to be a hundred different things: a poet, painter, writer, author, academic, conservationist, activist. For a long time I felt pressured to be only one thing - something I could squeeze into a job title or Instagram bio, and it wasn't until I left social media in 2018 that I finally felt free of the need to conform to a label. When my life was no longer compressed into 140 characters, I started to embrace the concoction of things I wanted to be, and in March 2018, when my first book was published, I left full time employment to pursue a freelance career in creativity and environmentalism. In 2019, my second book Dark Skies will be published with Bloomsbury - a non-fiction piece inspired by a year exploring the landscape at night. 

So why do I need Patreon?

Freelance living is fantastic, but in a world where art and literature is consistently underfunded, I've found myself unable to invest in the projects I feel will reach the furthest. I have a gang of loyal readers and supporters of my work that have inspired me to push myself further, but in order to do that I need a more reliable income. 

What will I be sharing on Patreon?

In return for your wonderful support, I will be sharing exclusive inspirational nuggets on here that won't make it to my main website. This will include sneak peeks at new projects and chapters, vegan recipes, ethical living hacks, vlogs, illustrations, articles and other creative bites. Earlier this year I deleted my social media accounts to pursue a happier, healthier life, so this will be the only place to receive spontaneous updates and inspirational content. 

What do I believe?

I believe that nurturing a connection with nature is an integral part of the human experience, and I'm passionate about unearthing the narratives hidden within our landscapes. Whilst studying for my MA in English Literature at UCL, I read an essay by Lynn White Jr. called The Historical Roots of Our Ecological Crisis. It changed the way I see the world and made me realise that we had not always behaved so destructively. I later read Silent Spring by Rachel Carson and Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, both life-changing books that convinced me that, at its core, human nature is not destructive. We have simply allowed greed and consumerism to corrupt us, and there is no reason why we cannot return to a less violent, less ignorant, more peaceful way of life, coexisting with other species and improving our own wellbeing.

It's my love for wildlife and ethical living that gets me out of bed each morning. I'm passionate about educating and inspiring others about the planet through words and art, because without a healthy planet we are all a bit doomed - and I really love being alive.
