How Patreon works: 

When you click the “Become a Patron” button, you can select how much you want to pledge per month. You'll be charged automatically, and can adjust or cancel your pledge at anytime.
You can also set up any amount to give me, like, $1 a month, or just $1 at that time - it's your choice! 

Do I have to do Patreon with you?:

No. I will still love you even if you do not give me money! I'm still SO thankful for anyone who follows me. Nothing is going to change with my art, etc, as well. Do not feel guilty for not being able to pledge! You are so, so amazing. Don't even put yourself down! 

Where your money is going: 

If you do decide to pledge to me -OMG THANK YOU- your money is not going to waste! With your money, I will be able to go on trips during the day via cabs (I can't drive ;-;) and get more inspiration, aka, draw more! I will also be able to take art classes and opportunities I have not gotten to before. I will be able to buy more art supplies, which means, MORE ART. I will also be able to do projects I've never been able to do, such as, maybe release a book? Hmmmm? :3 
With your help, I will be able to become a person I am proud of. Let's go!

Who are you?:


My name is Caitlin Suarez.
I fight with anxiety, social anxiety, all the freaking anxieties, I gottem and I fight with them, and, sensory processing disorder, but, when I was young, my mum thought I had dyslexia so, I threw myself into my art because I was so emotionally overwhelmed and emotionally and physically drained all the time. Art became my only tool to express myself, for it was the only tool I had at the time.
I went to art class for 9+ years because my art skill was basically in the beginning, DIRT.
Eventually, I begin to join contests, etc, to show my art to the world. But what was I showing them? Me. 
I tend to draw what I want to draw. I hate doing commissions and being restricted with my art. Art is the one thing I always have had control over, and always been able to do. It's natural to me, and everything else is not really natural to me. So I draw my emotions, my struggles, my random stupid concepts, my pure dark self (anxiety ridden, kinda sad sometimes, emotionally overwhelmed, self hating self), my pure self in general. My flaws, I definitely show them in my art.
For years, I was unable to express myself at all. I was stuck inside myself like a shell. Until one day I went and got tested for disabilities, and finally, got some help.
I found art is a huge, huge tool (and I ~love~ it!) in helping me, because I have other mental issues as well, PSTD, memory processing disorder, OCD, severe Dyscalculia (I'm a vampire? lol), and a comprehension disorder. I couldn't speak to strangers - even if I wanted to!
This led me to not have many friends, struggle keeping friends, struggle within my family, and struggle in everything, really. Because of these struggles, I've learned a lot about myself, and along the way, learned art is really what I wanna do. I can't give it up. I can't give into myself and tell myself I'm not good enough for this to be my way of living.
I hope by earning money, I am able to continue to produce art, aka what I love, and share it with all of you. I want one day to own my own gallery in Downtown Tulsa.
I want to do booths in Tulsa events, like Chalk It Up! (which I actually drew a chalk drawing in one year!) and some Guthrie Green events. But I need your guy's support. I'm poor af.
Let's go make a fun future for me, and a great day for you!
Kindness, it makes the world go around.
