Hi There. I'm Belinda. Nice to meet you.
After 10 years of blogging about studio practices in printmaking & watercolors with still photos, I've added video on my youtube channel to broadcast more comprehensive details on printmaking methods (collagraph, linocut, drypoint, woodcut, etc.) and watercolor painting & drawing, with hope that you feel encouraged and inspired to try a few of the creative adventures I share.  

What is This Place?
Patreon is a modern version of the historic practice of patronage, where an art-lover supported an artist, craftsperson or a scholar. Repeated support allowed creative folk enough means to buy art supplies, and create meaningful work in the studio, rather than spending days in a non-art job like feeding and watering the beasts at the Roman colosseum. 🦁  In this digital version of patronage, supporters can donate once, or subscribe to give a set-amount once-per-video.  You can provide as much as you'd like - even as little as a dollar, because every penny helps purchase supplies, hardware and video equipment in my studio.

What am I Sharing?
I'd like to document more in-depth approaches for studio setup, best supplies for different results, choosing reference material, busting through creative block, beginning watercolor, printing with and without a press, printmaking inks (oil vs water based), drypoint on plexiglass, managing printed editions, framing your work, selling at art festivals, selling art online, and everything else that goes into a thriving practice as a happy, productive, full time artist.

What's my Plan, Stan?
I'll need an overhead camera mount (so many of you have asked for this - I hear you!), lighting, a close up lens (another request from you folks - for details on carving blocks and watercolor brush work), more robust editing software and a backup hard drive to store enormous volumes of video clips. Your participation will make my studio ready for better quality video production, at less of a neck-cracking angle, posted more frequently.

Thank you for joining me!

$1 or more per each new video
$1 may seem trivial, but your generous participation makes my studio practice sail! Got a question? Ask me. I'll always answer patrons right away. You have access to my library of painting and printmaking video tutorials on youtube, and an archive of watercolor and printmaking articles on my blog.  Group hug!  You are the tiller on my boat. Thanks for being so awesome!

Well, aren't you so awesome!? Yes, you are! For $5 per video, you receive confetti-infused gratitude, downloadable information sheets on watercolor paper, a subscription to 1) my studio newsletter, and 2) my blog, and a 4x6 print of a watercolor from a special Patreon-only selection. You rock!
Vine Charcoal
$10 or more per each new video
They broke the mould after they made you! "This one is PERFECT!" That's you! $10 per video will launch imaginary plates of warm cinnamon rolls vibed to you on Sunday mornings, the same benefits listed in the smaller tiers above, and an 8x10 print of a watercolor from a special Patreon-only selection. Oh, and you smell good too!
Intaglio Ink
$25 or more per each new video
$25 per video puts you at the head of the table, with two helpings of dessert. Because you're amazing.  In addition to the same benefits listed in the smaller tiers, you'll get an original, hand pulled, matted, ready for a frame mermaid collagraph, or a peacock feather drypoint from my studio. You choose! And did I say this yet:  your hair looks fabulous today!
Goals
6% complete
I plan to purchase video-making equipment for my studio, like an overhead camera mount (I can hear some of you applauding), good lighting, a close up lens (put away your magnifiers, whoot!), robust editing software and a backup hard drive to store enormous volumes of video clips. Your participation will make my studio ready for better quality video production, posted more frequently. Thank you for joining me!
