Porcupine. Protection. You are protected. Protection is always accessible; all you have to do is ask. Are you armoring yourself too much and not letting others in? Are you letting others' views of you color your own views of yourself? Alternatively, are you too trusting and find yourself disappointed or heart-broken repeatedly? Are you attacking others unnecessarily to try to protect yourself from being hurt first? These are all good questions to ask yourself. Let Porcupine show you the way to setting clear boundaries, to trusting and respecting yourself and others, and to finding a sweet balance between vulnerability and healthy self-defense.This is an original painting. There is only one!
- Acrylic on 1/8" birch panel
- The Porcupine energy description is printed on a lovely sticker on the back of the painting
- Does not have hanging hardware (good for propping, hanging with clips, etc)

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!
