It’s all burning inside, greater than a fickle flame in darkness—-brighter than glowing embers of logs turning to ash. Setting the old, the hurts, the negative a blaze, celebrating what once was but is no longer…From smoke, from ashes, from darkness, from ruin is where beauty rises—-where it lives. A blank canvas, a new beginning, a chance to manifest love, to create something light that allows you to feel safe. After the ashes comes me. Writing, making music, painting, creating, feeling, seeing, believing, being…This is what deciphers who I am. Art is me. Art defines me, I don’t define it.
My current favorite project I’m working on. It combines many of my greatest passions…film, photography, writing. I’m thinking of incorporating these into my shop in some form, so tell me what you would like to see! Fashion pins, magnets, prints, stickers…drop your thoughts and ideas in the comment section⇣

There’s something about being out in the garden early in the morning before sunrise, under a shady cherry tree. Something about the cool breeze, birds singing & bathing enjoying their seeds, roosters down the road calling good morning to all, the dew sparkling as small fragments of light reflect from it’s drops, watching butterflies dance and flutter with happiness as they discover the beauty I’m creating for them…As I’m working on my bee/butterfly sanctuary garden, & as I began digging and planting under the cherry tree I became overwhelmed with a feeling & sense of empowerment. I greatly empathized with the tiredness of said tree, & it’s dissatisfaction, boredom, & loneliness were palpable…It’s almost as if it whispers a faint sigh of relief while I plant ferns & seeds beneath her. I can feel it all the way down into my bones that I’m being called to educate others on the importance of restoring, recycling, and preserving what’s left of our Earth. Although so much seems and feels hopeless especially in current times & in this country’s current state…Sometimes through the foggy midst of chaos—-We often forget to notice or perhaps think about the little things we can do to better our surroundings & perhaps ourselves…In doing so re-builds & rectifies our purpose, our duties, & our sense of self as well as our sense of community. We are only visitors of Earth, we do not own it & we must not destroy it. We have the power to do good things, to do positive things if we choose too that is…Beauty will grow in the most unexpected of places. Bask in it’s patience & learn from its forgiveness.

The Ranunculus has always been my favorite flower & this year they’ve been a lot easier to get my hands on. I stumbled upon a bunch of Ranunculus plants at a shop that were marked down to $1 because they were “dying.” Well let me tell you, I scooped a bunch of them up, gave them a little love and patience and look what I clipped today from my yard. We shouldn’t be so quick & easy to give up on things, especially things that are living beings 🌈💖💐🌞
