It still doesn't cost a fortune to offer encouragement!! Two dollars a month will give me a serious boost of encouragement and in turn I'll send you my thanks and a shout-out on my next patron only post.
Five dollars gets you into the starting-to-make-a-real-difference camp! As well as my thanks and a shout-out you'll be able to participate in patron-only polls, contribute suggestions and see previews of my new art before I post them publically anywhere.
I'm doing my best to make a living from art after being unable to work for the past few years. I have complicated health issues including fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, endometriosis, narcolepsy, cataplexy, migraines, eczema and asthma but I'd always managed to keep working to some degree. However, in December 2015 I had meningitis and my health and life collapsed. It took months to even begin any form of recovery, then 7 months later it reoccurred (I had no idea that was even possible). There have been further reoccurrences since and each time is like hitting a reset button back to 0% health. Very little is understood about recurrent meningitis. I also live with severe anxiety which I've been dealing with since I was a child. I also support my fiancée lucy who is also my carer and literally keeps me alive. She's encouraged me to draw again after almost 20 years and has given me so much support getting back into this.
My health does affect my ability to draw, the fibromyalgia causes severe pain throughout my body but the worst is usually in my hands. My co-ordination is also shot to pieces and the meningitis has affected my vision and hearing too. I do my best to draw as near to daily as I can though!
If you enjoy seeing my art and would like the chance to influence some of my upcoming pieces whilst supporting me then I'd be grateful if anything you can donate! Every penny is greatly appreciated. Please keep watching because I have lots of projects coming up in the next few months!
i'm grateful for any support you can offer me as I embark upon my new journey. I'll be shuffling some perks as I become more established and have more to offer. If you ever need to cancel or change your pledge, don't worry about it - times change and money is fickle, I completely understand and I am just incredibly thankful for you to support me in any way at all. You'really awesome - thank you for reading!
