What is Patreon? Patreon is a website built for artist to fundraise for particular projects or to support the artists ability to sustain a living creating art.
Why is that important? This is what I’ve learned on my journey of art.
It’s hard to put into words why I do what I do. I just know I can’t not do it!
Painting in particular has become who I am. Over the years of honing my skills I have found it to be a way to not only connect with nature
and my cherished upbringing but also a way to share those feelings with others.
I have learned how much of a spokesperson I am and have become to others through my art.
I have also grown beyond myself to know that as much as art has had healing properties for my own well being,
what I do brings healing properties to those that view and own my work.
I wish that money didn’t have to be a part of it!
I would do this for free!! Unfortunately though I can’t!
My Goals and dreams are to not only continue to make art but to be able to share it in ways beyond just the purchase of my work. I have taught art off and on and ever time I do I realize how much good I am bringing to people. I also offer fun art party options where people can experience the fun of producing or creating art. Through this latter option I am able to do charity events to help special causes, for example Save The Bay, another is the Lupus Foundation. I also donate my work or participate in events where a portion of the proceeds go to the cause. There’s so much more I would like to do to help others for example animals, or an elderly mentally challenged artist I know and so on.
This is where any help I can get towards this endeavor would be wonderful!
Patreon offers options of monthly or one time payments to support an artist do what he or she needs to do. Contributing to this not only helps the artist but many others.
