patrons

Hello! Hello!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I'm Wendy, a mythological fantasy painter-illustrator.



Moon Goddess Oracle Cards

For the past 15 years, I've been illustrating children's books and adult coloring books. In the past couple of years, something changed and I've felt pulled to do something different. Something more. Something fantastical. A nugget of an idea came to me two years ago and I've been mulling it over and putting it off while continuing to create kid lit art. No more. The idea is demanding I begin. I will be creating a fantastical oracle deck based on the four phases of the 13 yearly moons.
The creation of this deck is what you will see on this Patreon page. In addition to the work-in-progress posts for these illustrations, you'll see posts from warm-up session, life drawing sessions and general studio and art related information posts.


WHO AM I and WHY PATREON?

Art and its creation is like breathing for me. Some of my earliest memories center around being surrounded by art supplies creating unicorns and elegant dancers. For many years I worked a full-time job as a graphic designer while raising a family. In my infrequent spare time I painted. Before moving to Missouri in 2000, I had even achieved a small measure of success in the gallery world and was awarded signature status with the Connecticut Watercolor Society.
Then my life changed big time. I got married. I moved halfway across the country. And the economy tanked. The graphic design work that had supported me for over a decade dried up and went from a stream to a trickle, to non-exsistent. I turned my sight to children's books. My first book was published in 2005. I love creating art and story for children, however, royalty checks, when they come are small and don't fully support me. In 2016, I left the man I married and moved to Missouri for. Life changed in a big way, yet again. I've gone back to graphic design. It pays the bills, but doesn't satisfy my mythological hungry soul. I have this Patreon in the hope of scratching that itch. Feeding that hungry soul. To bring mystery and beauty to the world. On these pages I want to work on my personal project and share the progress with you.

Should you find my Moon Goddess Oracle cards interesting and worthy of your support, I want you to know that every, single pledge is immensely appreciated!  Your support will encourage me to create the Moon Goddess Oracle deck to add to the wonderful art in this world!

WHAT YOU WILL GET!

Patrons will see wips, sketches, exclusive previews of the above project and will have access to original coloring pages, step-by-step views of my painting process, uncensored pages and more. As soon as I reach my final goal, I hope to reward my top level patrons with the completed Moon Goddess Oracle card deck. This will be along term project. Between the long hours on my job, and the need to rest and baby my thumb joints from overwork, I envision the project taking between a year and 18 months, at least, if not longer.
For Patrons I’ll also provide exclusive resources such as tutorials, video processes, mentoring, and coloring pages. Of course, the more support I get, the more content I’ll provide, but remember that the main target will remain my project, so I’ll focus on them, first of all!

Thank you in advance, whether you wish support me or not! I hope that my projects will delight and interest you. I welcome your support here and invite you to follow me on my other platforms as well! 

WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME:



As a fantasy illustrator, income is derived from the artworks I create. In the past, my customer has been someone who commissions art to use to sell their own product or service. The Patreon supporter will be able to bypass that middle-man and get that up-front view of my mystical Art Nouveau works from thought process to finished piece. Your support will help me to be as creative as possible, giving me the freedom to pursue whatever fancy my muse throws at me. If you have any questions, please contact me.
