About Stephanie Oplinger

BRING YOUR IMAGINATION AND ESCAPE FOR A WHILE
Hello Dearest,

I am Stephanie Oplinger, and I am a visual artist from Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I am deeply influenced by surrealism, and I love incorporating imaginative and dreamy images into my paintings, stories, videos, and creations. While you most likely know me from seeing my traditional acrylic paintings on social media, I also work across several different mediums including film, writing, music, and sewing. I look forward to sharing more of my creations and tutorials with you than ever before!

As social media on Instagram and Facebook makes it harder and harder to be visible and share my creations with you, Patreon is a great space for it all to come together while also offering you EXCLUSIVE monthly REWARDS. This is a space where you can expect to see exclusive behind-the-scenes peeks, early access first looks, first collector options, exclusive livestreams, art tutorial videos, and lots of other physical art goodies.

LIMITED TIME 2020 WALL CALENDAR

Join before the end of January 2020 at the Dream Seeker tier ($10) or above and receive my Patreon exclusive 2020 art wall calendar. I printed only a limited run this year, and they will be available only for my Patreon patrons! 




WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

As you can probably imagine, I spend a lot of money on art and craft supplies. It digs heavily into my regular living budget (like food!). As my project ideas get bigger and more complex, they often get more expensive to create. I hope to expand my merchandise and print offerings, but finding printers and manufacturers proves expensive as I order test products. Your patronage will help me be able to afford the new supplies and processes as my creative projects and goals get bigger and better. 

FOR EXAMPLE:
I created a dress - an evening gown, to be exact - out of nearly 1,500 spoons! It was an ambitious project, and it cost my over $150 in supplies to make. I will be creating more wearable art pieces in the future, and as Patrons you will get a hand in voting on the next project and also helping absorb the costs of creation.

Additionally, I have several upcoming group, solo, or student exhibitions coming up within the year. Exhibit expenses such as framing costs, catering for opening receptions, and travel costs are some of the things that add up really quickly when showing my work. Your monthly patronage will greatly help to absorb these costs and be a major part of the success of these exhibits!



My list of upcoming exhibits:
  • WCCC - Student Exhibit - April 2019
  • Garden & Civic Center - Solo Exhibit - July 2019
  • Headkeepers - Group Exhibit - Feb-April 2020
  • GHAL - Solo Exhibit - June/July 2020

I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron?
Yes, please only sign up to donate what you can easily afford. Even just $1 per month adds up, and it is greatly appreciated!

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?
Yes of course! You can log in to change or cancel your pledge anytime you want.

I'm still confused. Can you help me?
Absolutely! If you have questions about using Patreon or encounter any problems with the signup process, the Patreon support team is really friendly and helpful! You can send them a message by clicking here. If you have questions specifically about my page or rewards, or just want to say hi, you can send me a message directly that only I answer the second you become a Patron!



Thank you so much for your time and support. I hope you join me on this creative journey.

Even if you can't join as one of my monthly Patrons, I am still grateful that you have taken the time to check out my Patreon page and my work.

Blessings to you, my friend!

Goals
$40 of $250 per month
Monthly art studio rental! With this amount, I will be able to rent a local artist incubator studio. This studio space would allow me to have open studio dates, a physical location to give art lessons, and dedicate more time and space to Patreon rewards and exclusives, such as adding a tier for online/skype  art lessons/mentoring.
