Welcome to my Patreon page!
My name is Kat and I'm going to start with the basics, teach you the rules and then I'm going to show you how to break them.
I'm 38 and I'm a self-taught, freelance visual artist living in Phuket, Thailand. I have taught art to people of all ages and abilities for over 10 years, from 5 to 95 and from beginners, to art students, art teachers and creative professionals. Teaching art is responsible for a lot of learning on my part. It encouraged me to explore media and techniques that I may never have tried otherwise. And it allowed me to witness, first hand, how learning a creative skill is beneficial to adults and children alike.

Creative skill is the tool with which one expresses creative ideas - so the skill to draw, carve wood, turn clay, use oil paint, etcetera, are all skills that can be taught and learned. What the individual does with these skills is the difference between a hobbyist and a creative professional. The skills are there to be learned and I promise, that even if the only person who ever sees any of the art you create is you, it is still advantageous to do so.
Creative activities open up a part of your brain that may not normally be stimulated. The results of this have already been proven to have a positive effect on other aspects of our lives, from success at work/school to emotional well-being.

So join me here, in the [not so] wilds of Thailand (Patreon), and let me impart a few things I've learned along the way and maybe I'll teach you something that you didn't know you loved.

Goals
$46 of $500 per month
My first major goal is photos and videos. The only camera I own is my phone, and it's starting to glitch out on me. But I won't be able to afford a camera or another phone for a while to come. I'd like to be able to take the best photos and videos I can so I'm hoping that's where we can get from here. x
