Map fo all things Apifera

The Healing Barn project: building a 24 x24' barn to use as a year round gathering area for elder people to sit with the animals, commune with nature, share story. This allows the elders to be in a natural setting. Many of the elders we visit have lost their homes, and animals. We can't get them home, but we can provide a setting that helps them smile and reminisce. Please support our fundraiser for this important project if you are able.


Instagram: Farm stories, animal photography, art news, and more

Facebook farm page Mainly farm news. I rarely post art there unless it is for a special reason. Sometimes I write a post without images on the FB farm page, and you might not see it on IG. I'll post ponderings about things - more like the old blog.

Patreon Free to public, membership and support are optional [and greatly appreciated!]. Story telling including my newest passion-working with felted creatures and miniature room sets to make stories and movies. Patreon is a way for followers to show their support financially, for as little as $2 a month, for my art and story telling- and you can leave anytime. Paying members get perks throughout the year, including free access to flip books and discounts on product.

My main art site: my portfolio and a place to see who I am, full bio, and what my work is all about. Also has an overview of our elder work.

My online shop: buy books, art, prints and more

The blog: Archived history of Apifera. Stories from our beginnings in 2004 through our move to Maine in 2016. Also can donate here to the non profit

Everyone can meet them now!

I want as many people as possible to read [and share] my stories and see my new felted creature stories/movies. Sticking them behind a paywall without a larger audience was feeling wrong and counterproductive. 

After researching with other Patreon creators on this, I was encouraged to keep all Patreon posts public, and let readers come to their own decision on supporting as a member or a paying member. This made sense to me, and felt more 'me'. So you can now join as a free member, see all posts...and you can upgrade to a paying member for as little as $2/month...if you feel like it.

So why should I be a paying member, you might ask?
1] it is a voluntary way to show support for my work. It makes me feel valued, to be honest.
2] Only paying members get free access to flipbooks and items found in the Patreon store. Paying members also get surprise pop up discounts or perks.
3] Paying members also accrue a credit at my Big Cartel online shop [expires every 12 months and starts over again]. So if you are a $10 a month member, after a month you have $10 credit at the shop, after 2 months, $20 credit, and so on.
4] Pickles keeps track of who is a paying member. I have no idea what she does with that knowledge, but you do all know she has Pickles Power on her side.

Thank you to my first, loyal members! And to everyone who joins in in any capacity!
