K. Baxter Packwood Studios ~ Mixed Media Fiber Art

About Me
I'm a Mixed Media & Fiber Artist living in the heart of the Prairie on the cusp of the Great Plains, in Ames, Iowa! My work represents the landscape around me, rural America. I love working with rusty objects, natural dyes, earth pigments, fabric, paper, and more when I create my original works of art!

What kind of art do you make?
I've been a practicing Mixed Media & Fiber Artist for over forty years, I learned how to embroider at the age of seven, and was given my first sewing machine (a Singer treadle) at the age of nine.

I work primarily with earth pigments, clay, ochres, rust, and found objects in combination with fabric, paper, and sometimes metal and or wood. I love the art of stitching as much as I love painting and drawing and have sought to combine those loves in my latest series At the Marsh and Field Notes.

In high school, my love of mixed media was born in a woodworking shop class, coupled with the sewing classes I was taking as part of Home Economics, outside of class I started creating my own original fiber sculptures incorporating wood, metal, fabric, and found objects.

Drawing, painting, etc., all help me to work through the process of creating each new work of art and each new series.

Do you sell your art through Patreon?
No, however, my patrons at the $10 plus level will receive art that I make exclusively for them once per calendar year. Patreon allows me to share with you behind the scenes of my studio practice.

You will have access to videos where I share my thoughts, challenges, and solutions, as my work develops. I love it when you ask me questions and would love to have a conversation with you! Doing so lets me know what you want to see and learn about my studio practice.

How does this work?
It's simple. You can pledge anywhere from $2 to $100 per month. (Read more about patronage tiers over there on the right.) That money goes directly to me and pays for things such as continued education, studio supplies, studio rent and equipment, food, and insurance. In exchange, I send you art! 

You send me Art?
Yes, at the $10 level or higher you will receive an original work of art once per calendar year. You will receive an original: drawing, mixed media painting, watercolor painting, or textile painting depending on the tier you subscribe to each month. Plus, you will also receive Studio Bling.

So what's your day job?
I'm a full-time professional artist I spend upwards of 60 hours a week working in my studio, or I'm out in nature taking photographs of the landscape, sketching, observing, taking notes, etc. When I go out into nature I promise to take videos and photos to share with you!

With your continued support, I will have decades of creation to look forward to in my studios! You can help make that happen by becoming a patron.

My primary goal is to move my studio out of my house onto a property where I can also have a teaching studio. A portion of this new studio space will be dedicated for filming online classes, podcasts, and creating original video content for my patrons.
