Stories have power! They shape how we see the world and how we see ourselves. It’s important to ask: who is telling the story?
As I immersed myself in the myths and legends of women, I realized that most of our stories are told through a male lens.
To do this, I use materials often associated with “female arts” (sewing, flower arrangement, embroidery, scrapbooking, and more) combined with traditional fine arts media and techniques (paints, pastels, charcoals).
My mixed media pieces give the power of our stories back to women while celebrating the magic and wonder that surrounds us every day.

The Seers are able to see the possibilities of our future, but only the possibilities. Since our life stories are written by our choices, they are constantly changing, and many would prefer a road map to help lead them to their deepest desires. People seek out The Seers to hear what they want their future to be, but often don’t want to know the full truth of what may come. So, The Seers hide themselves and only appear to those who seek the truth with an open mind and a grateful heart.
When someone makes a wish on a star, throws a coin in a well in hopes of making a dream come true, or sends a heartfelt silent request for a secret longing, those dreams are gathered and protected by Wishlings. Wishlings are the guardians of wishes. They carry and protect them wether they come true or not, because each wish is a story and all stories should be protected.
Those Who Came Before
Those Who Came Before are the collective spirits of our ancestors. When we pass, the lessons we learned in our lives aren’t forgotten, they are collected by Those Who Came Before. They are always there, whispering to our hearts words of encouragement and sharing the lessons of the past to those willing to listen and learn.
