About

Hi, I'm Jen and I'm the force behind the "Painting my Way to Hogwarts".

WHAT IS THIS PROJECT?
I want to make seven distinct pieces of art based on each of the Harry Potter books and premiere them at LeakyCon 2013 and with your help, I'd like to be able to sell a limited number of prints at LeakyCon 2013 in Portland, Oregon.

WHO ARE YOU?
I'm Jen. I'm new to painting but I graduated from the Art Institute of Cincinnati in 2008 and I've been drawing, designing, and creating for YEARS.

I'm a late bloomer when it comes to Harry Potter. I read the books when I was about 22 years old. Even at that age, I fell in love with the characters, the writing, and the fanbase.

Five years later, I was able to attend my first LeakyCon, in Chicago, Illinois. You may have met me there! I looked something like this.

Vladamir Snape!

 The support, the love, and the excitement at this event was overwhelming. I felt the connection between everyone there and had a blast the entire trip.

Here's a few examples of my work so far.

WHAT'S THE MONEY FOR?

The money here is going to help me buy art supplies for the project, a vendor's table at LeakyCon, have prints made, and afford air fair and accommodations.

WHAT DO I GET FROM IT?
I have very inciting incentives starting at $10 all the way up to $1,000. The lucky person who donates $1,000, will receive all 7 original paintings in the project. The incentives vary from your choice of print to unique, handmade art by me based on anything you'd like. If this wasn't my project, I'd totally be buying into this! These incentives are great!

OKAY, SOUNDS GOOD BUT WHAT'S A LEAKYCON?
LeakyCon is a conference that started to bring Harry Potter fans together but it's turned into so much more. It's celebration of the fandom community. I went in 2012 and it was such an amazing experience that I wanted to give something back to that community.

More information can be found at LeakyCon.com.

GREAT, I'M SOLD. LET ME GIVE YOU ALL OF MY MONEY.

Awesome! Please check out my incentives down to the right of here and see which one is the best fit for your budget! Any little bit helps me get to my goal and helps me create more art for the community I love so much.

Thanks for checking this out and donating!

Risks and challenges

Depending on the demand, the estimated arrival dates of the paintings/prints may be pushed back. Afterall, there is a LOT of painting to do! I look forward to the challenge!

I will be keeping everyone who pledges up-to-date consistently on the progress of the project.

I will do everything in my power to get the orders out as soon as I possibly can and if there is a delay in the printing or shipping, e-mails will be sent out to everyone involved.
