My name is Caitlin Rose Jackson, and when I was three years old, I told my parents I wanted to be an artist. Over the last 24 years, the real world has shaped me, knocked me down, and did everything it could to make me cynical. I’ve been diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, had my soul crushed by Corporate America, and can’t make a living wage even though I have two degrees. There are times I feel incredibly down and defeated, but I still can’t shake the feeling that it’s my life’s mission to make a difference in the world – add a bit of magic. I know what I am capable of, and I know I can make a positive impact on those around me through all forms of art, whimsy, and by paying-it-forward whenever possible.

Creativity cannot be contained, and it likes to take form in any and every way possible, which why I will NOT be limiting myself to abstract paintings, fictional writing, or daily sketches. Instead, inspiration and the quest for knowledge will be my driving force. Labels might help with branding, but putting anyone’s spirit in a box is the fastest way to lose their spark. I can’t tell you EXACTLY what to expect on this journey we will be taking together, but I can promise you two things:

1.I will always be 100% my authentic self. No fake smiles, no fake accomplishments. What you see is what you get. Above all, I value honesty, and believe in leading by example.

2.Everything I do will be done with positive, noble intentions.

If you choose to become a patron of mine, don’t do it because you are expecting me to follow you back on social media or because you want a personalized drawing once a month. Do it because you believe investing in young talent is investing in the future. Do it because you support the creative journey and believe there must be a better way of getting through life. Perhaps, I’m asking people to be too altruistic, but I want to be as transparent as possible.

Thank you in advance for giving me a chance; your support means the world to me. SO, without further ado…. Let’s get whimsical!
Tiers
Donut
$1 or more per month
All of my content on Patreon, at least for the time being, will be available for FREE. I understand what it’s like to be strapped for cash, but still want to be supportive. Checking back regularly and words of encouragement are deeply appreciated on my part. If you pledge $1, or any amount, I will be over the moon with happiness, and you will earn my eternal gratitude for helping keep me afloat during this creative voyage. 
Pretzel
$5 or more per month
During the Middle Ages, pretzels were seen as a symbol of good luck, prosperity and spiritual fulfillment. They were also commonly distributed to the poor, as a way of providing them with both spiritual and literal sustenance. Will you be my pretzel?
Flamingo
$20 or more per month
Flamingos are majestically awkward and invoke a feeling of happiness in most people. If you select this tier, I would consider you flocking flamazing. 
Sea Turtle
$50 or more per month
The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle symbolizes good luck, endurance and long life. When lost, turtles are excellent navigators and often find their way home. Now, grab shell dude, and just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...
Swan
$75 or more per month
At one point, Taylor Swift posted a picture of herself on a swan shaped pool toy. One could argue that she is responsible for making this trend balloon out of control. If you select the $75 tier, you are not really a swan, you are Taylor Swift, and who doesn't want to be Taylor Swift? 
Unicorn
$100 or more per month
Unicorns are mythical creatures that symbolize purity and enchantment. They only appear to a rare few and have the ability to bestow miracles and wisdom to those who are pure of heart and virtuous in their deeds. I think you get where I am going with this my dear, dear unicorn. :)
