Hello there, everyone, and welcome to my Patreon page! My name is JADe, I am Romanian, and I am a creator of stuff.

I hope you enjoy your stay and decide to stick around for a while. ;)

Just hear what I have to say... :)


So...

I build worlds. I tell stories. I create stuff.

This was some kind of a motto for me, for a while, and that is because I am a creative person, but, for a long time, I used to consider myself to be primarily (and kind of only) a writer. Which I still am. A writer, I mean. But the writing is, at the moment, kind of on hold/secondary to the art part. And, until recently, there was no art part, at all, at least for a very, very long time... But let me explain.

When I was young, I used to study art for a while. Not very long, but at least the basics were covered. Then... life happened. Battles with depression, anxiety, other stuff, and I quit. I tried digital stuff for a while then (web design, desktop publishing, graphic design), then that stopped too, because of... various reasons. The writing was also something that I did, on and off, since grade school. And lately, it was mostly writing that I pursued. Until the beginning of this year (the beginning of February, to be more exact), when my laptop broke. It just died one evening. Almost a couple of months passed before I could get my hands back on my data again (Which is amazing in itself that I did! Could have been worse!), meaning all my writings went untouched all this time (no recent backups of my works, unfortunately). And so… I started doing other stuff. First colouring in adult colouring books, then art journaling and all kinds of artsy experiments, then trying out more and more new art supplies and techniques and then, finally, realizing this is something I want to do more than just as an occasional hobby or only to relax/pass the time from time to time. That it is something for the long run...

And so here I am. Getting back to art. Trying to remember all those art lessons I took a very long time ago (15, almost 20 years, I think), taking more classes, experimenting and trying to get in as much practice as I can to get myself back on track. In other words, I decided to go back to basics first, the fundamentals of drawing and painting, traditional and digital, and then go from there and see where all this takes me. While having fun, of course! :)

So... if you would like to join me on my creative journey, I would be very honoured and happy to have you by my side. I have my blogs to post things - the end results of my endeavours (plus various social media sites), but Patreon would be perfect to share all that behind the scenes content, the works in progress, the process blogs (maybe vlogs, or even timelapses/real-time videos, whenever I may create them), and, of course, early access to all my otherwise public content... (and, maybe, some occasional patrons-only exclusive content, from time to time, who knows? ;)). And, that, for an introvert like me, is almost perfect. :) Plus, your support would help me tremendously – to buy all those art supplies, pay for my software subscriptions, bills, and general life expenses... It would be amazing, and I am forever grateful for your support, however big or small. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! :)

(In the future I might “expand” this page to also include my writing endeavours – speculative fiction stories mostly - and other creative projects that I have in store.)

So... thank you so much for being here, even if it is just for a quick visit, and a huge, grand, million hugs worth of a thank you if you decide to stick around. :)

Welcome! (My cat, featured as my avatar, says hi too! ;) :)


(A little clarification: I am currently using Patreon Lite, which means that there are no fixed tiers. When you become my patron, you can choose to contribute as much or as little as you want, it's up to you. Your chosen amount will be charged up front once, on the date you sign up, and then, beginning with the following month, your chosen amount will be charged as a monthly subscription, on the first day of each month. Once again, thank you for your support!)
