Hello! My name is Matice and I'm a Black, non-binary, queer painter, printmaker, and facilitator, learning and loving my way through a life-long liberatory art practice. The gift of your support makes my artistic practice more sustainable, it helps me build bridges with and for other artists of color, and it's great karma!

As a patron, you'll receive:

  • Monthly On Purpose Posts (OPP), where I share what's happening in my studio life.
  • Blog posts that highlight my paintings, prints, drawings, and photography (clicking on the picture gives you a more detailed view of the work).
  • Discussion of the ideas that I'm researching and exploring, especially as they relate to the recurring themes of Black liberation, mothering, spirituality, race and gender that show up in my work.
  • Profiles of artists that inspire me. 
  • A note sent to your mailbox as a token of my gratitude, along with stickers, cards, original art, and things to burn. 

Your support goes directly toward helping me reach my goal of raising $500.00 per month WHICH IS INCREDIBLY HELPFUL toward covering the costs of rent for my studio, plus the fees associated with traveling to residencies and workshops

Paying to be a self-directed developing artist is difficult. More often than not, folx in the early stages of an artistic career are bankrolled by their parents, have access to other sources of monetary support, or have to sacrifice their creative freedom for the sake of gigs that will cover basic living necessities. A small percentage of folx, especially those from historically marginalized backgrounds, have the time and space they need to incubate their practice and pursue opportunities that in the short term pay nothing or very little, but are extremely beneficial to the development of their art in the long run. Thus the cycle of seeing a homogeneous art world dominated by white men continues uninterrupted, and the art we need to inspire radically inclusive, life-perpetuating, expansive shifts in our culture goes unmade, locked inside a person working a job they don't love, obstructed by the myth of pulling yourself up by your boot straps. 

I believe my life as a self-directed Black artist is possible because my constellation of friends, family members, and acquaintances have already shown me that kindness and gratitude are the currency of the universe.

Furthermore, I know that suppressing our deepest desires stifles our divinity. Or as Carol Lloyd puts it:

“Many of us grow up being told that we have two basic choices in life: Leave behind our desires in order to survive, or risk survival in order to pursue our desire. We may discount our desires and dreams as selfish or impossible (and probably some of them are), but maybe desire is the last trace of the universe’s desire for us. Maybe desire is our only clue to navigate this labyrinth of life, and by ignoring it we have about as much chance of finding the right path as the Minotaur in the maze. If nothing else, its worth entertaining the notion that desire is not a capricious tick of immaturity but an invitation to action with an elevated consciousness.”
