Hi! Thanks for stopping by my patreon page.  My name is Elaine Joy Roach and I am a compulsive compassionate dreamer.  I'm the creative force behind Designs for Happiness, Just Made for Hugs, Treasured Paper and Finality Gear. I’m a paper artist, product designer, mom and gamer based in Toronto, Canada. My inspirations come from nature, people and emotions. I work predominantly with paper, and include hand-weaving and woodworking among my passions. 

My creative mind is so busy coming up with new ideas, I barely sleep. I love to create things that will spread some love, laughs and all that good stuff. I believe that Patreon is the best platform for artists to continue creating and maintain their artistic integrity. Not to feel like a sell out or worry about financial pressures. I really work from the heart and put a lot of me in my creations. I don't want this ideas to remain as drawings in a book or stuck in a to do list never seeing production.  

I've really just started my creative journey after a long hiatus (kids) and would love some company along the way. Be a patron today and see the stories behind the pieces, inspiration and even my mistakes.   

What do I make? I make everything and anything.  

Before kids, I was crazy about lights and furniture. After kids and some self-discovery, I finally gave my inner artist a voice - not to make a portfolio but just to express myself. My paper art reflects upon my pain, memories and joy. It's not easy trying to spread love to everyone. Since I love stationery, I make stationery in between projects or when I need a change.

In the last few weeks, I've been creating content with my daughters for Just Made for Hugs. They tell me what they want to make and I enable them to turn their ideas into reality. We hope to launch this summer. Its all about family fun and design for the family. Patrons will have first access as I continue to edit and prepare all that needs to be done for this project.

Lastly, I'm back to designing things again. I'm finally allowing myself to create everything again - all sorts of products and merchandise. Any urban/gaming designs related will fall under Finality Gear inspired by my 20+ years of reading manga and gaming. I also plan to start turning everyday objects into Designs for Happiness seriously again. So many projects, crazy right?! No wonder my mind won't let me sleep.

As you can see, I have a lot of creative projects on the go - each one needing different resources, equipment and skills. Becoming my patron at any level shows me: 

a. you care about my work
b. you want to see me keep creating
c. you want me to sleep again (n.n)

If you like my work and want to see me keep creating, be my patron to gain exclusive content and member benefits. 

I just want to keep creating to leave compassion, kindness and love wherever my creations go.  Come take this creative journey with me and let's make some magic.

Much love,
