Hi! Welcome to my world. I'm a creator - and have done a wide range of art from life sized muppets, silk painting, medieval calligraphy ... and all the way to contemporary kilts (Alt.Kilt - http://www.altkilt.com). and now I'm working on something very new to me. I've been learning new skills for the last year and my art has started to come together into a whole new world. And it is thanks to my constant supporters that all this has been possible.

I'm using Patreon to change my job so I can again support myself with my art. I'm moving from an established business to something new and exciting and I'm hoping to share my process and failures, my discoveries, and my art with others as I learn. I have rent of a studio space to cover as well as living and work expenses. Since this art is new to me, materials and techniques are still evolving. I've been taking formal classes for two semesters now and am also self taught.

My GoPro is ready to make more videos and I have already started documenting the process that I use for sandcasting, mold making, resin setting and metalworking.  I am prepping tutorials for a variety of things listed above and also other techniques such as ink work  silk painting,  pewter casting, silver casting, etching, and more!  This space will become an entire library of art!

I appreciate all the feedback I have been getting on my new work and I am thankful to those of you who support this endeavor. I can't wait to show you more.

$25 a month - Swag time! Each quarter, I will be focusing on different things (usually with a theme but not always) and at the end, I will send out an swag bag of 1-4 items (est. total retail value of $60-$75) I have made related to you!
