Welcome to the Artist BZTAT ( pronounced bee-zee-tat) Patreon page!

I am a full time professional artist known worldwide for my colorful and contemporary pet themed artworks. I make my living creating artworks for people who love animals as much as I do. I am most known for creating custom pet portrait paintings in bold colors and contemporary compositions, although I do create other works as well.

I absolutely love doing commissioned artworks for people who are willing to share in the adventure of creating an image of their pet! Doing commissioned work, however, tends to take me down well traveled paths, leaving me to be less inclined to experiment freely with new techniques and new directions. I do what I know I can do, and I take fewer chances, because with commissioned work, there is no room to fail.

I have no intentions of stopping my commissioned work, in fact, I want to grow more with my commissioned artwork business. In order to grow, though, I need to allow myself the freedom to experiment and play more in between my more focused and intentional works. That is why I have started this campaign.

Patreon is a unique crowd funding platform that brings artists and art enthusiasts together in a very special kind of relationship. For a small financial investment each month, patrons can get an up close and personal view of the inner workings of an artist's creative process as if they were right there in the studio! The patrons' investment allows the artist to creatively explore the regions of his or her talents without feeling the usual financial pressures to produce predictable outcomes, and instead produce more dynamic value for their supporters.

That is exactly what I would like to do for you - produce dynamic and creative value that you cannot get anywhere else.

I would like to embark upon a new creative adventure where I explore new ideas, new techniques and new directions without feeling the need to meet a commissioned expectation or the desire to make an easily marketed piece of art. I want to create for the sake of creative exploration, and I want to take you along with me on this journey!

What will I create? What will I explore? The sky is the limit! Some of the things that I know I'd like to explore include: found object collage and assemblage; various sculptural techniques; new themes around fantasy and whimsy but also more serious social awareness themes as well; feminist concepts and reflections on changing attitudes as we age; and a bazillion other reflections on our changing culture. I will always circulate back to animal themes, I suspect, as that is what truly enriches me and gives my life meaning. Still yet, it will be gratifying to explore the many other facets of my being in occasional departures from my norms.

How will I take you along on the journey? I will be creating new artworks weekly that you will see in-progress and completed before anyone else does. At different levels of patronage, you will be able to follow along through patron-only content, including: access to my patron only stream that will detail my processes and creative/personal challenges; Q&A feedback opportunities; Google Hangouts; and exclusive opportunities to obtain artworks before they are presented publicly for sale. Through the process, you will not only get to view my creative progress, you will also bring impact and influence to my creative work through a unique ongoing dialogue.

I will continue doing my commissioned work and other paid creative activities throughout this creative journey. I will, no doubt share those aspects of my work with my Patreon supporters, but in doing so, you will see the behind the scenes processes that do not get shared elsewhere.

Sound like something you might want to try? Great! Take a look at the tiers below that explain the rewards you receive for each level of patronage.
