But what IS Patreon? And how does it work?
Although I love what I do and cannot imagine myself doing anything other than this – I do know that in this crazy world of mine that it's impossible to survive on fresh air with only a diet of hope and the occasional box of donated teabags.
The glue, paint, wood, tools, paintbrushes, fabric and all of the other lovely stuff I use to create my imaginary worlds ALL costs money AND if it didn't I would either be crawling over hot coals to get to this 'Land of the Free' or I'd be spending time at Her Majesty's Pleasure...
Which brings me to Patreon!
Patreon is a crowd funding membership site for artists just like me - although I've yet to find anyone else using this site who creates anything quite like I do!
Beginning with a monthly pledge from a $1 and up which is charged to your card on the 1st of every month – not only will you be supporting me in my work but you'll also be invited to cross the portal and step into my world!
With a generous monthly pledge of $15 - YOU too shall feel 'At Home' with exclusive access to 'Nicole's House' as an 'Honorary House Guest.'
Inspired by the life of Nicole Brown Simpson, 'Nicole's House' is the story of a 12th scale contemporary home which has enjoyed world wide recognition - however, the story is FAR from over!
With access to my Patreon musings, you can watch as I recreate Nicole's last home at 875 South Bundy Drive as faithfully as possible.
For with completion scheduled for Christmas 2018, you can now join me in the studio as I work on the ambitious design of another and much larger Nicole's House!
And you'll have the opportunity to see the completed 'Nicole's House' before anyone else!
