Hi, I'm Silja.

I'm a fine artist/illustrator and designer from Iceland, creating charcoal drawings decorated with bright colours and metallics. I create original artwork and take commissions for portraits of people and pets. After backpacking in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Southeast Asia for 2 years, I moved to England (UK) where I've been based for the last 3 years. In that time I've worked hard on my art while working part-time as a housekeeper.
But in August I'm venturing out into the big world again, all the way to Canada - and after that we'll have to see where life takes me! If worst comes to worst I can clean your house for a good price!!

But I do have a huge passion for travel and my artwork is greatly inspired by my adventures exploring the world. I plan to continue creating artwork during this extended travel experience, which brings me to the main point...

Why did I join Patreon?
First, the most "selfish" reason of them all: So I can continue to make art for people while I travel the world - and to share those experiences with you.
But I also want a lot of other things. I am serious about my art and I want to take it all the way. I have lots of ideas, BUT I need support from you guys to make those ideas become reality.
Some of the things on my "WANT" list are:
- Open an online shop and create products with my art on them. That includes stationary and products for fellow Globetrotters that are easy to take along on their travels!
- Design and sell a series of greeting cards for various occasions. I want to create cards that people can send to their loved ones from anywhere in the world, to show that they love them and are thinking of them.
- Inspire and support others, possibly with art classes or online "coaching/mentoring" sessions. I know how extremely valuable this was for me when I was developing my art and I'd love to give back to you.

But if I simply get enough money to continue creating artwork I will be over the moon with joy!

So, HOW does Patreon work?
If you like my work and would like to support me, you can pledge an amount of your choice per month (check out the different tiers to the left on this page), it can be anything from $1 a month, which I would be so so thankful for! It basically works like this: At the start of each month your payment will be processed and throughout the month I will share the rewards with you.

If you change your mind at any point, you can cancel your pledge or choose a different one ANYTIME.

But WHY should YOU pledge? 
What's in it for you? You will get access to all rewards that come with the amount you choose to pledge, which includes Patreon-exclusive content, being the first one to access new content, a space where we can chat and connect on a deeper level, DISCOUNTS on artwork and FREEBIES. You will also get to explore the world alongside me.
And if that isn't enough, you'll be able to sleep better at night knowing that you're helping make great things happen...

Thank you for being here, regardless of whether you pledge or not. I value any spare moment you give me and my work. I'd love to see you on the other side though, in my sweet, little Patreon-community!

Love,
Silja x
