Why become a patron?
I'm Laura Morelli, art historian and author of non-fiction and historical fiction based on the history of art.
Art is a magical thing. It has inspired me throughout my life, and that is what I hope to do for others with everything I create. I want to connect with people. I want to help people feel not alone. I want to help people feel hope. I want to help people feel. Period. If this is something you believe in, something that seems important to you in some way, then this is the place where you can make more of that possible.
During my years as a full-time author and teacher, I have learned that the only thing I really need is you. Some of you have been with me since the very beginning. You are the ones who believe in me and my work, the ones who support the creation of my writing, the ones who allow me to do what I love every day.
In centuries past, people believed that it was important to support their artists and writers. In Renaissance Florence, for example, patrons of the arts made the careers of artists like Raphael, Michelangelo, and others by letting them lodge in their homes, and by engaging with them and buying what they made. If it weren't for those patrons, well... You may never have even heard of Michelangelo.
Now, I'm not asking you to set me up in your guest room. But... I believe in patronage. I've been a patron of other artists and writers because I believe it's important to support the work that matters to you.
Today, I'm building a community for people who care about books and art. If I've learned anything, it's that lovers of books and art are the most generous people in the world. So I'm using this forum to create a community of folks who appreciate what I'm doing and want to help, whether it's the writing or teaching or publishing.
You make it possible for me to do the work I think matters, and in return, I work my head off. Whether you can afford to be a Montefeltro or a Medici (see above...), you are all equally valuable as my patrons because your support--no matter how great or small--demonstrates that you value what I am creating and want me to continue.
I believe that books and art enrich our lives and strengthen our spirits. So let's make this world a better place--together.
