About StarStryder

Hi! My name is Dr Pamela Gay, and I want to tell the story of science.

For more than 10 years, I've been finding stolen moments to write essays and narrate—both my own words, and those of others. Very rarely, I even find time to do art. I've realized that it is only when I make time to do science and pursue creative projects, that I am truly happy and productive. This Patreon supports my work towards making creative science communication a core tenet of my career. 

Who I am: I'm a PhD astrophysicist with experience in art, narration, and writing.

What I do: I create space-related content that explores the intersection of art and science. 

When types of content you can expect: I will work to create space related art and poetry, and when I can I also write essays related to life in academia, science, and more.

Where you can see my work: My content appears on, and on most social media platforms under the username starstryder. You can also purchase my art on Redbubble and Etsy.

Why I need your support: My day job is only part-time. I'm seeking funding to pay for supplies, software, and other necessities that allow me to be a human who makes art.

At this price point I will share one painting a day. These will go live to Patrons at least 24 hours prior to when they are posted to social media. I will also read stories on Twitch on "school nights" when I am not travelling.
