"I really feel like what you give as rewards as a supported artist goes WAY beyond the value of the contributions I make. Its really appreciated but I really do feel overwhelmed by how generous you are." - Patron feedback

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider becoming my patron.

WHO AM I?
I'm Zee, a book artist & author/illustrator living in the deep south of New Zealand. I love exploring through creative play and expression, but also through encouraging others to share their own creative voices; your own creative voices.

WHAT'S MY PURPOSE?
My belief is that if we can find & follow the paths that make our souls sing, then we will have a happier world. My hope is that I can be a source of encouragement and inspiration to others who are finding their path.

WHY BECOME A PATRON?
There are a number of projects, communities, and workshops I take on to help others on their creative journey. By supporting me financially, you're helping hundreds of other people.
Some of the work I do includes:
  • Author visits to schools to inspire children in their writing, illustrating and publishing.
  • A snail mail Facebook community to encourage creative expression and connection.
  • Free colouring pages for local events and organisations, including Artweek Auckland, Auckland Arts Festival, The Happiness Idea/Wellington Botanic Gardens & Auckland Heritage Festival.
  • Writing, publishing, and zine workshops for community groups and schools.
  • Educating new writers and encouraging them in their journey to publication.
  • Publishing children's work through the NZ Young Writers' Anthology (currently on hold).
  • Zines that share and promote other creatives.
  • Sharing my creative processes, ups & downs, and failures through blogging and social media for others to learn and take comfort from <3

What to expect from the patron-only feed:

I'll show you the inspiring, creative things that are happening with thanks to your support :-) Every month, I try to post a summary of the costs you are supporting.
