Patreon is a platform where the mission is to make it possible for creators to do what they love. I love making art, but very often I’m not making enough with art sales or workshops. Patreon offers a way for people to contribute towards the work of artists like me by pledging as little as $1 per month or per creation. For your support you get rewards, which include access to exclusive content, handmade art ‘thank you’ gifts and limited edition prints. Watch a video about Patreon >>
WHY SUPPORT MY WORK?
Most of the work I do is self-initiated, very ephemeral, process-based or experiential. Which usually results in it being unpaid or unsellable. In a world where ‘time is money’ all this unpaid and transient work means that the support of my Patreon patrons are incredibly important in enabling me to do my work and keep doing THIS type of work.
HOW TO SUPPORT MY WORK?
Because my work is so diverse and varied – including paintings, installations, land art, performance art, writing, photography and digital art – the best way to support me is to pledge the amount that suits you best, and this pledge amount is per month – allowing me to keep creating the same way I always do – following the inspiration, my intuition, and the opportunities that present themselves to me.
WHAT REWARDS DO YOU GET AS A PATRON?
I publish weekly patron-only updates, surprise my patrons with handmade thank you cards, notes or postcards, and send artworks to my high-level supporters, who also get the opportunity to connect with me once a month on Skype or Hangout.
I hope you’ll join me on my journey!
