About

Hiya! I'm Sara and I'm obsessed with watercolor!

Drawing, painting, and teaching are my passion. If I could, it's all I would ever do! 

But the Reality is...

I'm a mom of two small kiddos. They take up A LOT of time, and I am definitely grateful I get to stay home with them. Being an artist and a mom is very challenging for me.Separating the two or even finding ways to make them work together hasn't come naturally. Thus I have turned to Patreon to help support my work while I raise my kiddos.

How I'm Staying an Artist as a Mom

New research shows a stay at home parent is equivalent to 2 full time jobs! Yet, I just can't stop being an artist, and I have worked 20 years to make my work known to the world. So with the few hours a day I get to create, here is where I am placing my creative energy:

I continue to paint and explore watercolor. I enjoy teaching and I want to share what I know to others so that watercolor isn't so 'scary' to learn! I hope to start a blog sharing the techniques and projects I am teaching locally.

I am giving my website more attention, by working to list all of my original paintings, present the current year's collection, and offer prints that are drop shipped straight to the customer!

I will travel and display my art in galleries and shows, yet I will not be doing anymore art shows until both kiddos are in full time school (one down, one to go). The only show I will be attending will be the World of Faeries Festival in South Elgin, Illinois. 

I also have a newsletter I send out, through email, every quarter. If you're interested in joining the list, please feel free to sign up! -->  https://mailchi.mp/0d8ce8715a2b/sarabnewsletter

Why Support Me?

Without much time to teach, and raising our family of 5 (this includes our cat Talor) on my husband Brian's income (thanks babe!), funding for my art, website, shipping supplies, and gas are extremely low. Believe it or not, even some of the most well known artists are still 'starving artists'. 

Your support will allow me to continue creating art, getting it to galleries, to create coloring books, share it online, and keep this mama running with lots of coffee!

Your funds will go towards:
  • Website hosting/domain fees
  • Gallery membership fees (i.e. Iowa Watercolor Society)
  • Painting supplies (paper, paint, brushes, tape, frames, matting board, framing hardware)
  • Printing (art prints, coloring books, business cards, Patreon rewards)
  • Expenses for gallery set ups (gas/lodging/food)
  • Continue supporting two children through Compassion International
  • COFFEE! Lots and lots of coffee!

Your Return

  • Work in progress shots and documented step by step

  • Patron first access to new products such as coloring books and calendars

Goals
$313 of $400 per month
Start a monthly video series teaching watercolor & drawing.

I shine most when teaching something I love and watch others grow in that too. My vision for this goal is to provide a YouTube channel exclusively for teaching videos.

All patreons pledging $10 or more will have access to this goal once reached!

The YouTube channel would focus on beginner and intermediate watercolor and drawing. As those two do go hand in hand. I will teach from my already published book How to Draw and Paint Watercolor Fairies, and teach from my 14 years of past objectives.
