More about me, if you're super curious...
Let me tell you a bit about me.
I am so white.
Before we begin our journey I want to be certain you know this about me: I am a privileged, cis-gendered, bisexual, white, woman, married to a cis-gendered white man, mother to two white adult children and one teen. I was a foster parent for two years before officially becoming a guardian to my nephew. I am a racist who was raised by racists in a racist culture. I have benefitted greatly from my white privilege even though I was raised in poverty in a rural Oregon town. I see my own racism better now & I am ready to spend the rest of my life unpacking my whiteness & making reparations for the mistakes I've made AND for the mistakes my ancestors made. I am listening, learning & working to become an antiracist human who shows up in this world with both words AND actions. This is not a gentle, fun, or easy process but it's also not optional. I will speak loudly about racism, gender, sexism, classism & the destruction of Capitalism in ALL of my WeRK. Sadly everyone is not ready for processing all of that Shadow WeRK so if you don't feel like you're ready we're not a good fit & you should find another place to learn about Astrology, Art & Magic. I won't be quiet or nice or patient any longer; this is an uncomfortable time & the Astrology informs us that being uncomfortable the REAL WeRK of NOW. It's time to change in drastic ways. Learning about your own natal chart can show you where your ism's are and how you can change and grow to make the world better BUT if you're not ready to face the shadow & the shit then please don't waste either of our energies. I would love to WeRK with you but I also have a LONG list of powerful & gifted BIPOC practitioners to recommend in my place | CLICK HERE FOR LIST | please consider supporting these practitioners to gain new insights into your natal chart AND the world.
I am an Oregon Rain Baby and the descendant of colonizers. I was born on the Central Oregon Coast and I now live on land stolen from the Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Northwest; those who were here before my ancestors came. I live in a little suburb at the base of the Wy’east Mountain in Troutdale, Oregon but my ancestors first came to the US in 1647 and to Oregon in 1891. Both of my paternal grandparents, parents, my self and my children were born in Oregon. I work a lot in the Portland Metro Area. I am very grateful to live in a place as beautiful and magical as the Pacific Northwest. I am working hard to better understand and to honor the Indigenous Peoples who were here before me; this land is sacred and it was stolen. I encourage you to learn more about those who lived on the land before you did; listen and hear their stories. Support their descendants financially and politically where ever/whenever you can. I hope to share more of my experiences with this reparation work with you as I learn more.
I am Cancer Rising, Capricorn Moon, Aquarius Sun. I also have Venus & Mercury in Capricorn, Mars in Gemini. I have Jupiter and three asteroids in Aries. My Sun squares Uranus and My Moon Squares Pluto. Yo, it's a lot babes. A LOT. I've studied traditional Astrology and read charts in Whole Sign Houses. I am currently learning about more about Medical Astrology AND Solar Arcs - I love literally every second of it. I'll draw chart when I read it, always. I make Astrological art because it makes it easier to understand and absorb; for me AND for you! Supporting me here on Patreon means that I have more time to invest in my studies, so, more Astro info for my Patrons!
Through the Practice of Process I Create Space for Magic.
I am an artist, astrologer and advocate. I am inspired by Curiosity, The Process, The Magic and All The Things…literally, all the objects, especially the lost, broken or misunderstood ones. I collect EVERY THING. My creative nature grew out of a childhood centered in making the most of what you've got. My wild imagination and an uncanny knack for reuse have been mine since I was seven years old. I feel blessed to still have a tight grasp on both skill sets. I try my best to make art like that little girl did. So far, so good
Most folx don't understand exactly what I do at first...
and that's ok. I create a plethora of creative thangs using intuition, imagination & integrity. I draw, paint, write, stitch, craft & cast spells with the intention of remediation: healing, growing, releasing, shedding & transmuting the energy around us for our own greatest good. I use magic to bend time & space so my clients can learn how to do the WeRK required for finding a peaceful balance between their unique light AND dark parts. We all have a unique alchemy babes. I am all about find the emergent properties in each of us.
As Above, So Below.
My life purpose is to be a guide thru the inner labyrinth that is our individual birth right. We all have complexities but it turns out that we also have a map to guide us. I can help translate and illustrate that map. I use my skills as an artist, astrologer & witch to write about the current Astrological weathers/transits you & the collective are under. I merge all my talents to offer powerful natal chart/astrology readings and to create magical art pieces that are accessible, affordable and easy to understand; each creation is as unique as the being or event it's been created for.
My hope is that this community I am initiating will help people connect with my WeRK and my intentions more deeply. I can be a lot to take in at first and I am proud to be a giant weirdo. I own this part of me now and I accept it as my own personal healing WeRK AND as my WeRK to help others find healing. I am not a ten second elevator speech and werking with me will hopefully be more intricate, personal and profound than any "about you" write up can capture.
Why Process Based Art?
As a process based creative person I believe that capturing the "who, what, why, when AND how" is imperative for each piece I make, always. It is also compelling for the client to be engaged in the collaboration & conversation from the conception to the birth of their commission. I don't make one item on an assembly line and sell it. [I am not saying that's a bad thing either, it's just not what I do with my clients]. We make art together. Sometimes that's jewelry. Sometimes that's a painting.
Of course I do make art and crafts and sell them, for sure, but that inventory ranges from hand sewn pouches to Just Be Blocks to Shrinkie Dinks to paintings. And every single thing I make is one-of-a-kind. Becoming a Patron of my WeRK allows you the chance to see behind the scenes of the creation process so you can better understand why these services are so supportive.
My Astrological art pieces, writings, teachings & case studies also have a creative process that I find extremely important to share. My MAGICmooning Moon Scopes track the cycles, phases, & Zodiac signs the Moon travels in throughout the week, the season & the year. The content is meant to help guides us thru the current AstroWeathers with the best possible outcomes. I believe the best part about my Astrological work is that it helps you connect to your highest self, your greatest good, while also giving you insight into what other folx might be going thru right now. This expands your empathic muscles so you can give them more grace and acceptance (NEVER just tolerance, BTW).
It's a great big, hopeful concept, I know, but I truly believe a better understanding of Astrology and Magic (aka: SCIENCE) will bring the (R)evolution we so desperately need!
Why do I call it WeRK (pronounced like Twerk) instead of wOrk?
Because this is my healingWeRK, my heartWeRK, my soulWeRK, my lifeWeRK. It's not just a job or a career. It's also about our collective WeRK and I hope that by connecting with me, even if it's just for a few dollars a month, brings you closer to your own WeRK too.
I'll try to summarize me for you...
I am an artist.
I am an astrologer.
