About Ira Martelo


Hi, lovely! My name is Ira. I'm 28 years old and a helpless romantic who enjoys creating. Painting, singing, taking photographs, making graphics, writing stories, anything creative has always been my passion. However, due to health issues, I had to take a long pause when it comes to creating. And this is how I ended up finding Patreon.

My health issue has been my biggest insecurity for almost 15 years. It doesn't only cause me an unbearable pain, it also affects my appearance. And that's the reason why I've spent 90% of the last 8 years inside my house. You might be wondering... Can I be cured? Last time I talked to the doctors about it, they said I needed to go through a 1-2 years treatment to get cured. This, of course, will cost money. As you can imagine, getting a job isn't an option given my condition. And that's how I decided to start  selling my art and my photography

I know, I know. Patreon isn't about charity and I should probably keep the details to myself, but if I've learned anything in life is that being honest does count. I'm not gonna lie to you: I have no idea how it's like to have a painless day. I wish I could do what other people are doing, like being able to finish high school, which I had to drop out of given my health condition. Getting a job and having my own income, being financially independent... Having at least one painless day. I would love to show myself and my art, publish my book, get married and have children, and do all the things I've always wanted, which my condition has stopped me from pursuing.

If you decide to become my patron, I want to thank you beforehand. Thank you for your support and for believing in me. Thank you for helping me get my life back. You're not only paying an artist to keep on creating. You're paying to save a life.
