YOU'RE OFFICIALLY A PATRON OF THE ARTS 
Did you think rich people were the only ones who could call themselves a Patron? Come on, this is 2016, you can call yourself a Patron of the Arts and spend more on parking downtown.  Write it on your resume, make business cards, tell everyone you know!

I've got artistic goals and you are doing so much to help support me (that goes for all donations), but this tier will give you a voice in my artistic ventures.  For this, and all donations above you will be able to make suggestions or critiques of my work.

YOU JUST PAID FOR A PAINTBRUSH
This size of a monthly donation helps pay for one of my shopping sprees at Blick Art Supplies (I live within walking distance, it's a problem).

About Natalie Meredith

My name is Natalie and I knit (Check it out) but I'm also an emerging artist, currently located in the Sunny (yet expensive) San Diego.

My Situation:


I went to school for Fine Art and met the love of my life... then he joined the Navy.  I took this an opportunity for me to see a lot of what this country has to offer and I absolutely LOVE it!
I had an amazing job as the Graphic Designer/Social Media Coordinator for a family owned Fabric Store in Virginia and I learned so much, but Military life makes it hard to keep a job you love (if you're a spouse that is).

So I recently found myself in San Diego, CA and unemployed... for months... I cried about it for a while and then decided that this was a great opportunity for me to start my art career!

San Diego has been so welcoming! In the last few months I have had 2 shows, got into a juried art show, and am working with a local coffee shop that helps find homes for cats! (you'll see why cats when you check out my work >^..^<).

Although this support has been great for my confidence it hasn't exactly paid for itself yet, this is where you come in.

Your monthly donation will help me:

  • Buy art supplies - Paper, tape, paint, pens, sketch books, rulers, frames, you name it!
  • Enter Shows - From Juried art shows to Art Fairs, they all require payment, some are expensive!
  • Support my Creativity - The most important thing your support does is help me turn my art into a career.


My initial goal is $500/month.  This is only half of what I was making at my full time job, but will go a long way in helping me create.

My stretch goal is $5000/month.  This type of income will help me get my work out to a larger audience by paying for shows around the world, shipping works to galleries far away, and a car/plane ticket to go see those shows.

If you're new to Patreon there are a few things that I'd like to share with you:
  1. Your donation is monthly - This means that if you pledge a certain amount Patreon will charge your account each month, this is not a one time thing (if you're interested in that, feel free to email me).
  2. Every donation is incredibly helpful - Weather it's $1 a month or $20, every little bit helps!  I appreciate your support and want you to know how amazing you are!

Goals
$0 of $200 per month
There is a juried art show coming up and I want to make something amazing for it!  This amount will pay for supplies, framing, and the cost of entering the show.
