What is Patreon?
Patreon is a web platform that allows creators to provide extra and behind-the-scenes content to their audience as a subscription service.
What’s empowering about Patreon as a space for creators is it allows me to post additional content, like my sketchbook, works in progress, journal prompts that I use to build up my paintings, and what my work is intending to say, without worrying that the algorithm will hide it or that it doesn’t suit the aesthetic of a curated area. In this way I can share more of my creative work in a more personal and authentic way.
I left my day job in 2022 to pursue creative work full-time, and it was a LEAP OF FAITH. Your monthly or yearly support on Patreon helps provide me a stable source of income and not solely be reliant on the caprices of the social media algorithms to show folks the rad merch in my shop
Patreon support allows me to focus on larger projects, continue community building, and begin to explore teaching some of my skills in 2023.
I believe we can create a more generous and generative world by supporting each other, and it truly touches me when people support me by becoming a patron. Thanks for your support. Let’s keep lifting each other up.
