Hello! 

My name is Becky and I am an artist currently residing in Portland, OR. I grew up in Houston, TX drawing practically every day of my life since I was able to smear food on a table. Illustration has always been my escape and a tool for understanding my own mind. I have always drawn magical creatures that are amalgamations of several different animals and delighted in the idea that anything you can imagine exists. Dragons are my favorite. Each creature is a being of complex emotion, born with its own story and its own world. Lots of my creatures are guardians and guides, and some are spectators or NPCs. I draw a lot of my inspiration from role playing games, bizarre nature, textures, mythology, and psychedelic fashion. I attended an arts magnet high school for visual arts for 4 years and an additional 2 years at an art college, but I'd never learned anything that valuable about marketing your own work. Thus, Patreon!

-Becoming a patron would mean that you like my art enough to support my craft, which makes me cry to think about because my art is extremely personal and when someone else treasures it, I feel that is a very deep intimate connection that nothing else can replace. Becoming a patron would also mean that you will get access to a patron-only feed with extra drawings, other creations (costumes and accessories!), and a peek into my process! Having accountability to folks who are anticipating creations is the kind of motivation I need to really go above and beyond what I have previously done. And in the future I can promise Patreon exclusives and rewards and even competitions!

Because I have just started out here, I am going to offer an original piece giveaway when I reach my first 10 patrons! 

Thank you for looking, from the bottom of my burning inferno of a heart!
