My Name is Emily and I am an artist who works mainly in watercolours, creating imaginary worlds, strange creatures and magical beings.
I am currently working on an RPG table top game book based on Strangehollow with Accidental Cyclops! It’s called Surviving Strangehollow and should launch on Kickstarter in 2024. I also have some new personal projects planned this year which will include sculpture and another book.
Immerse yourself in a magical world filled with whimsical folklore, fantasy and legend!
Your membership gives you instant access to painting processes and techniques, tools, and insight into the creation of the enchanted world of Strangehollow and much more! I share things here that I do not share anywhere else. I usually have one big project on the go during any given year with some side quests along the way.
ASK ME ANYTHING
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
When you become a member, you gain access the posts page. This is where all the content lives and where you will find posts I have made since February 2021!
There is a menu to take you to different types of posts (video, art process etc) every time I make a post you will be notified via email with the link to the latest content. I post about once a week on average and you can cancel your membership at any time.

Original Art Commission Tier
£65 per month
$83 per month
Thank you so much! All previous rewards PLUS
An original A5 watercolour painting mailed to you after three months payment of £65 per month. You choose a short prompt such as ‘magical unicorn’ or ‘cute hairy creature’ etc. You can repeat this every three months or sign up for just one cycle. OR you could save up for a few months (maximum – 6) and use those months to convert into a coupon for my shop. For 3 months this works out at a £177 voucher and six months is a £354 voucher. (The whimsy tier access of £6 a month is deducted from this).
This tier is charged at £65 monthly so your space on this tier will remain until you cancel. After each three month cycle I will contact you and ask for your theme prompt. You must respond to this email within one week, if I have not heard from you after a week then I will be making a painting of my choosing instead! (This is so I can keep my schedule organised).
After your first three month cycle you can either cancel your membership or start another three month cycle. Or you could choose a lower tier to continue viewing my membership only posts! You can downgrade your membership on your account page. LIMITED SPACES. (I ship worldwide).
Below are examples of this tier’s rewards that I have previously made.

I personally really enjoy being a member, the content is very diverse. From behind the scenes of the artworks, with sketches, to the final pieces and also the whole progress about the artbooks she makes. I also learned a lot thanks to the articles about how Emily made her Kickstarter and every other step she takes in her career. I am glad to support such a wonderful artist!
Watching Emily’s art journey is so inspirational! From little snippets of delight, to magical creatures and enchanting tales, to information about her creative process and the realities of being an artist and business woman. I always look forward to her posts, and have learned a lot from her over the years.
I’ve loved being part of Emily’s community of patrons! Her art is incredible and she’s a wonderful communicator, so fun and engaging, more dedicated to her audience than many others. The community of patrons Emily has gathered are all lovely too. Will be following any new venture of hers eagerly and joyfully!
I’ve been a member of Emily’s since right after she did her first Kickstarter. That’s how I found out about her wonderful work and then next thing you know I’m a Patron! It’s hard to describe how much joy Emily’s art gives me. It exudes positive energy – even the art that’s more on the dark side. 🙂 I love being able to see what’s going on “behind the scenes”. Not being an artist myself, I’m glad I get to live vicariously through her and the lovely community of patrons she has.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
Chances are if you are here you are already familiar with my work. By becoming a member, not only do you get glorious exclusive treats for your eyeballs, but your support will allow me to continue to create more books, paintings and stories in future!
WHEN DO I GET BILLED?
You are billed immediately when you sign up for my membership and then monthly (or annually, depending on which you choose) on the same date you joined.
is it easy to cancel my membership?
Yes! You can cancel your membership at any time, you are not tied into a contract. Please be aware though if you are on the £65 tier and cancel before your 3 month cycle is up, you do not get the painting described. Depending on when you cancel at that tier I will be able to send you something smaller and less detailed.
DO YOU DO TUTORIALS?
Not in the typical sense no. My membership is not designed as a ‘how to’, it is purely a peek into how I work. However, I do share the stages of making a painting from sketches, ideas and inspiration right to the finished piece. I don’t share the complete process of every painting I work on just occasional ones.
Can i commission you to paint something for me if I am not a member?
No, at the moment I do not offer commissions outside of this membership.
Can I ask you a question about the membership?
You absolutely can! If you aren’t sure or if there’s anything you want to ask then you can email me.
WHAT PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept credit card and PayPal
How do I see the content I have signed up for?
Firstly make sure that you are logged in to your membership, then you can navigate to all areas of the site, and see all of it via ‘POSTS’ in the menu at the top of this page.
Is this like Patreon?
Yes! The only difference is that there is no middleman. I built this site and run it on my own. I answer any and all queries myself and fix any issues that might arise. It’s built on WordPress which is an incredibly well known web building platform.
why did you leave Patreon?
It just so happens I wrote a blog post about this very thing! You can read it here: Why I Left Patreon.
CAN I UPGRADE/DOWNGRADE MY MEMBERSHIP?
Yes! This is easy. Just go to your account page when you are signed in, click on ‘Subscriptions’ and then ‘Change Plan’ and that will give you a little dropdown box to upgrade or downgrade. If you are at the £6 tier and you up to £10, £50 or £65 you will not be charged extra, it will take into account the £6 you have already paid. Likewise if you want to reduce your membership from £10 to £2 then you will not be charged twice.
WHAT IS THE SECRET SHOP?
The secret shop is separate to my main shop online. This is where I post original artwork for members to access before I add them to my public shop www.emilyhare.co.uk. There will also be occasional prints which are reduced in price because of minor imperfections and any items that are exclusive to members.
