I create a range of written and visual artworks, and although I do sell a few, and sometimes get paid to run workshops or do poetry performances, this is not something I can live on, nor is it the main reason I create - it simply helps towards the costs of what I do. Whether written or visual, my work tends to be issues-based, looking at social and environmental issues, resource use (I work with upcycled materials), the political sphere and so on. This tends to be well-received, and there is no shortage of demand, but it is not inherently commercial - its value lies in the pleasure it brings and the conversations it generates. So, pledges will help me live-without-starving while I create, as I am dropping the day-job to focus on art and writing, and need more creative-based income to be able to create full time. This in turn would allow me to explore larger, more ambitious, and ultimately more effective project ideas. You can see some of what I do here.

I'll write and email you a unique haiku, so you can enjoy some of the stillness I feel when pledges come in.
A longer poem

I'll write and email you a unique poem - not an epic, but something around sonnet-length so you can share what I feel in that moment.
A book or a print

I'll send you a signed copy of either of my first two poetry collections Subduction Zone or Navigational Array  (let me know which you'd prefer) OR a limited-edition art print so you can see what I've done as you follow what I'm doing now as your pledge supports my work...

All the things plus uniqueness!

As $50, plus I'll create and send you an original artwork - it'll be something that's easy to mail, but beyond that will be a surprise, so I hope you like it!
