Hi and welcome to my channel where I hope to share with you all the tips and techniques I’ve picked up over the years as a professional pastel artist.

I’ve been helping other artists through my blog and Youtube channel for years, and because there is so much interest in pastel tuition, I thought I’d try to devote more time and energy to video tutorials. This is where you guys come in…

By using Patreon as a forum to share this knowledge, you can contribute with a subscription to help me fund this project. After just one year on Patreon, I've managed to upgrade my laptop and camcorder, purchase proper studio lighting and many other extras. These things make my job easier as well as giving you higher quality videos.

With your support you’ll gain access to video tutorials, royalty free reference photos, instructional videos, live demos and more. All while in the knowledge that you're helping me progress down this path.

My own background in art starts at an early age with the discovery of pastel and a love for painting animals. I graduated as an Illustrator in 2007 but since then I have produced hundreds of portraits, both pets and people. I also love to paint landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, interior scenes, whatever inspires me. It’s all about the light for me.

There is no better medium to capture it all than pastel. I’ll show you from the basics, right through to capturing the finest detail.

I have different levels of subscription to suit all budgets. You can see these on the right side of the page. Patreon is really simple…you can subscribe for as long as you want and it’s really easy to cancel or pause at any time.

I explain everything a little better in my intro video so be sure to check this out above.

I’m excited by the prospect of being able to create this content and I hope I’ll catch up with you here on my channel.

Goals
82% complete
If we can reach $2000 a month, my partner and I will be able to get paid for the time we're devoting to this. It will also mean I could take on one less commision a month and focus on making other demos and tutorials without that extra time pressure. All in all, if we reach this, expect a lot more content!
