The message of Slug is about not needing a hard outer shell; strength comes from inside. Slug teaches not to put up walls and barriers around yourself. Go slow, take your time. Leave a magical, shimmering trail in your wake wherever you go. There is no need to hurry. All slugs are both male and female, so this unique totem is also about balance between feminine and masculine within yourself. Softness and strength. Intuition and thinking. Action and stillness. Listening and activating. Slug is tied to the moon, coming out mostly at night. Let her magical ways lead you toward your truest self.

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!
