Here on the blog I write about my art process, as well as topics that mirror the core of my work - combination of herbalism, ancestral connection and eco-feminism.
I'm interested in exploring how the environment is impacted by humans and how a disconnection from nature has changed society as a whole.
Meaningful and sustainable art can really shift the energy of your home.
I imagine that you’re here because we share similar values:
You understand that the health of the planet is intertwined with the health of all life – not only humankind, but plantkind, animalkind, and the kind of life that is beyond sight.
And that principle impacts your choices, both big and small.
Your home is where you spend most of your time. So you’re looking to have something beyond just “pretty” – you’re looking to surround yourself with meaning.
You want your home to match your ethics, your personal life journey, and your vision for how you’d like to live – and for how you’d like the world to be.
I create art to help me navigate through what is currently happening with our planet.
It is a part of my art practice to honor the earth through study and appreciation of her beauty.
When I think about adding something to my home, I ask myself:
In asking myself these questions when decorating my home, I have learned a lot about materials, waste, creative processes, and sustainable alternatives.
I have also learned a lot about how my home shifts when I surround myself with things that reflect what is important to me.
That’s why I decided to offer my artwork to others. I have meticulously researched printing companies for my digital work, and found one that met my ecological standards. All prints are made on reclaimed post-industrial cotton paper, with petroleum-free and VOC-free inks.
I also have focused on creating original work with the most sustainable watercolor paints possible – made from nature and inspired by nature. These original works are created on paper that is also made from post-industrial cotton. Because the inks are fully botanical in nature, they do not emit VOCs or contain any harmful materials.
My intention is to create artwork that holds meaning not just for myself – but for others as well.
As you decorate your home, you may wish to make your way through the workbook I created for you as a gift to help you uncover ideas to build meaning into your home. You can access that here.
