Art Club: Dear friends! Thank you for joining me on this journey!
As a cherished supporter, you can look forward to:

  • A new 15-30 minute demonstration video every month (sometimes two videos in a month!). Topics will include things such as: how to tone paper, creating a piece from start to finish, experimentation, content on taking reference, inspiration and how to utilize it, etc.
  • Supply review video! Each month, I will be reviewing a certain art supply. Testing and demonstrating what I like (or don't like) about them in an extra video!
  • Life updates, studio/cooking/dog/crow/squirrel videos, things that inspire me. This tier will be a bit more personal in both what I'm working on and who I am.
  • Voting! You will also be able suggest subjects for me to make in upcoming videos.
  • Q&A videos! In this tier, you can send me questions that I will address and speak on in the next month's extra videos or posts.
  • Recipes! (I have a love of cooking and baking, so sometimes it'll be a sweet treat and sometimes it'll be savory!) Photos/videos with recipe included.
  • Photos of upcoming projects before they are publicly spoken about
  •  Access to behind-the-scenes images
  • Access to full content (all videos, behind-the-scenes and work in progress images, first look at upcoming projects, etc)
