About

Thank you for checking out my first Kickstarter project. I am a fine artist and an illustrator, using traditional methods. By blending a  unique style of delicate graphite work and many thin layers of acrylic  paint, I achieve a dreamlike quality in my illustrations which  explores nature, whimsy and storybook-like narrative.

For my first project, I would like to Make 100 Hard Enamel Pin based on my Heart Bear drawing. Bears are one of my favorite things to draw. 

The Heart Bear enamel pins will be:

  • Limited edition of 100
  • Gold-finished plating
  • Includes secure locking pin backs
  • Comes in a numbered backing card

Hard enamel pins are created by applying multiple layers of enamel paint to the recessed areas of the pin. Paint sits level with the raised metal walls with smooth and flat surface. Polished until glossy, with a high-quality and hard wearing finish, they are long-lasting and ideal for pin collectors.

At $100 pledge level, backer will receive the original graphite drawing of Heart Bear.

Thank you for checking out my first Kickstarter! By making a pledge, you will be helping an independent artist achieve dreams of sharing wonderment of the magic in the natural world. 

Risks and challenges

This will be the first time I will be having merchandise manufactured and produced by an outside vendor, other than printed collateral materials. Also, did I mention it's my first Kickstarter? :)
