This magical deck of cards is a true labor of love. The deck began as a daily project at the beginning of 2016, when my son, my first-born, was just 3 months old. I wanted to make sure to connect to my creative self every day, and so I set out to paint/draw/create an animal a day, for the whole year. These animal totem images began to emerge early on in the project and kept me inspired, motivated, and tuned into myself during the strange and wonderful throes of new motherhood. I am so grateful to them for walking with me and offering their wise and gentle guidance. Read the whole story of how they came to be right here.
As I created my daily animal paintings and posted them on Instagram, many people asked when I would turn them into a deck. I turned the images into this deck in 2017, and it's still my most favorite project that I've ever worked on to date. And I even made a brand new companion deck called Animal Allies Two!
I hope you love holding these cards in your hands and using them in your daily life to tune into the potent and magical animal wisdom and connection that is available to you whenever you remember to tap into it.

Every piece of art and every product that I make begins with an intention to connect with my intuition and with myself. Who am I today, and what do I need? Making art smooths out life’s rough edges and helps me make sense of all the complex feelings and experiences that are part of being human. Creating helps me find joy, acceptance, and gratitude. It is a balm for my soul, and I hope the things I make will feel like a balm for yours, too.
Whether it is a piece of wall art for your home that I created using paint, markers, and colored pencils, a deck of animal totem oracle cards, a bright, patterned iPhone case, or a hand-drawn greeting card — every single product that I sell is made with heart. Most products are made right here in my studio in Portland, OR.
My work is created both traditionally and digitally; my favorite materials and tools include acrylic paint, gouache, colored pencils, paint markers, wood panels, fabric, my computer, and my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I also sometimes use fun things like glitter, resin, and sequins!
