Living a Creative Life Video Interview!

Check out my recent two-part video interview with the fabulous Madeline Faiella of Maddy's Girlz!!! I discuss my work and life as an artist, sharing insights and experiences.

I have been very busy pollinating my Figure of the Imagination Patreon site . Patrons are enjoying the Weekly Insights postings on my concepts and the symbolic meanings behind them in my work, making comments and sharing their own insights! In the coming weeks, I am going to mix things up a bit, alternating between concept postings with my Weekly Insights to topics such as Explorations in Color, Studio Tips, Mythology, Storytelling and so much more. Every week, there will be a Weekly Insight about something a bit different. The Weekly Insights are available at the $1.00/month level. When I reach my first goal, I will do a Podcast which will be available to all patrons! I am also gathering resources and recommendations from the group and some great sources are brewing! 

The Figure of the Imagination private blog has been started, with the first post on making custom collagraph prints! 

Patreon will be the only place I will post demos and how-to content from now on. I also am no longer offering classes online. 
Pledges start at as little as $1 per month and include:

Figure of the Imagination is an ongoing, labor of love project and this campaign is the foundation for that creative effort. Your support will allow me to further my passion for all things fantastical, taking you along on the artistic adventure with me. From the preliminary concepts, sketches and the production of unique costuming, masks, headdresses and embellishments through to the final execution, you will witness my journey. This unique, behind-the-scenes access is only available through your generous support of my work on Patreon

As the body of work grows, I plan on releasing signature, limited-edition books as well as videos with hybrid, multimedia approaches to storytelling throughout. In addition, illustrated sketchbooks of the work in series, note card sets, creative writing journals and inspirational calendars will also be created. I hope to someday have a major traveling exhibition of the work as a whole!

As an ongoing patron, you will not only receive special rewards but also VIP access to private openings, special discounts to newly released products and so much more! When certain goals are reached, I will have monthly audio postings on creativity, group chats online, process and inspirational insight postings, technical tips and behind-the-scenes videos, just to name a few. 

I am very excited to go on this fantastical journey. Let’s do it together! Sign up HERE!
