Patience Tumblesome is a nerd-girl illustrator by day, a dancer by night and a starcatcher on lazy-day afternoons. She is currently living in Portland, Or. where she recently obtained a BFA in Illustration at PNCA. Her focus is to create symbolic and surrealist illustrations which celebrate and prominently feature the female form. These dreamscapes are rendered using detailed and delicate line work combined with saturated washes of ink, gouache and digital media. You can contact Patience for freelance work by e-mailing her at
