This message is simple and verrrrry cliche, But BREATHING is actually something I’m trying to do more of lately. I find myself holding my breath a lot. While working, while worrying, while rushing around, etc etc. I even found myself holding my breath while working on this drawing, sitting in the back yard in the setting sun on a gorgeous evening! Whenever I remember to take a few deep breaths it helps me soften, loosen my grip, get back into my body instead of all up in my head. It also helps me remember to look up, to look around, and to notice what’s in my wider world instead of just what’s in the immediate bubble around me. It helps me remember myself. It helps me pause, to listen to my intuition, and it gives me the chance to possibly make a new or different choice than I might otherwise. Such a simple and automatic thing, breathing, but so complex at the same time.

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!
