Hi, My name is Dr Pamela Gay, and I want to tell the story of science.

For more then 10 years, I've been finding stolen moments to write essays, and to narrate my own words and those of others. Very rarely, I even find time to do art. I've realized that it is only when I make time to do make science and pursue creative projects that I I am truly happy and productive. This Patreon supports me working to make creative science communications a core part of my career. 

Who am I: I'm a PhD astrophysicist with experience in art, narration, and writing.

What I do: I create space-related content that explores the intersection of art and science. 

When you can expect content: I will work to create space related art and poetry, and when I can I also write essays related to life in academia, science, and more.

Where you can see my work: My content appears on, and on most social media platforms under the username starstryder. You can also purchase my art on Redbubble and Etsy.

Why I need your support: My day job in only part time. I'm seeking funding to pay for supplies, software, and other necessities that allow me to be a human who makes art.

$422 of $1,000 per month
At this level, I will create a lightly edited, complete read of each novel along with a series of essays about the science of each story. I will continue painting planets, with one planet going live each day.
