Being immersed in the intersection of art and nature is a foundational part of my spiritual practice. For me, the process of making art itself - putting energy and intention into methodically creating a thing of value - is an act of meditation as well as an act of resistance within our mindless, exploitive consumer culture. I create using a variety of media - primarily watercolor and ink, but also oil, embroidery, collage, and digital media. Through my work, I hold reverence for the natural world as a sacred entity and exalt the female body as the source of life. Much of the recurring symbolism I use has been inspired by personal life events - the power of pregnancy and giving birth, entheogenic experiences, growing up within patriarchal religion, and joyful, formative childhood memories. Through the process of engaging in creative work, I seek to explore beauty, interconnection, and belief systems that hold power over people and regularly go unchallenged.
