Hello! My name is Cherlandra and I am a passionate creative! My artistic endeavours are diverse in nature and include fine art, graphic design and artisan projects. Even within each discipline my work is quite eclectic. I believe that true creativity is about continuous exploration and renewed expression. When I communicate creatively, it comes out in different voices so I learned to, not only embrace the multifarious nature of my work, but to celebrate it. Creativity is different for everyone. My artistic path is not just about making a living. It is about actually living. When I wake up in the morning, I can't wait to create. I need to create. It's where I come alive and feel that I am contributing to the world. It's where I'm my authentic self.


I am continuously building my portfolio and concurrently working towards being a self-sustaining artist. I’ve learned that living a creative life takes passion, commitment, faith and perseverance. It also takes significant resources, especially during professional growth stages. My short-term goal is the ability to support myself solely through creative means but my end-game plan is a bit more ambitious. It includes the dream of an artist centre where I can create, put on exhibitions, host art retreats, hold workshops and help other creatives pursue their dreams. Baby steps though, and that's where you come in!


Through Patreon, we can take a creative journey together! Become a Patron and you will be supporting a living artist who is working hard to bring original beauty into the world. As my intention is to eventually create support resources for other artists, paying it forward, here with me, goes even further than you might think. For just a dollar a month, you can be a part of my unique journey and feel great knowing that you are supporting arts and culture of your time.

Thank you for joining me in this creative adventure and also for supporting the work of a living artist!

I so appreciate your support!

The word "creative" in this title is not a descriptive word.  It is being used as a noun substitute for me, Cherlandra, the artist.  I am the Creative that you are literally preserving.  Your incredibly generous support provides the stability necessary to maintain a life of creativity, where I can then give back to The Universe through my own voice.  Creative Conservators help carry my voice further than I could on my own. It is louder and clearer because of you. THANK YOU for protecting my artistic path!

As an Authentic-Life Archangel, you play a truly special role in my life and that is why there are only five spots available at this level.  If you are one of my Angels, you truly believe, not only in my work, but in my overall vision as well.  Your journey with me is a lot more personal.  We will be on an authentic-life journey together and you are my co-pilot!  You will get a behind-the-scenes look that is very unique to my Archangels and even have the divine power to influence my projects.  I was put on this planet to create. With your overwhelmingly generous support, you are literally changing a life; my life.  There really are no words that truly capture the depth of my gratitude for that.  With all that I am, THANK YOU for making my dreams a reality.

In order to support this new endeavour on Patreon I'm going to need some equipment so that I can create videos!  I currently only practice film photography so I'm going to have to borrow my daughter's digi-cam.  I need a mini portable tripod so that I can safely use her camera in my work area whilst starting up my Patreon profile.  I'm so excited to get going!
