My Bio

Ko-fi: ko-fi.com/Amehana

Patreon: patreon.com/Amehana

Paypal: paypal.me/thgstardragon

Linktree: linktr.ee/Amehana


I write under Teresa Garcia and sometimes Amethyst Stormrider. I illustrate under Teresa Amehana Garcia. I am also known as Amehana Arashi and Amehana Ishtari.


I'm currently busy with writing, art, and apparently the taxi service for my teenagers. I hope to some day be an online professor teaching Asian Studies, Asian Religion, Asian Mythology, or Asian History. My major is International Relations with an Asian concentration, and my specific areas of the most interest are Japan and the Ryukyu Islands.


I am a priestess, legally ordained minister, coffee lover, author, poet, narrator, illustrator, publisher, sim administrator, and game administrator, but most of all a mother. I do not have the time for social time I once did. I live in the mountains of Northern California.


I paint, I write, I love tai chi, I love to fan dance before the central kamidana of my home when I am well enough. Not a lot to know really, but more to find out than most people ever do.


My gallery includes some pieces from as far back as my Junior High Years (not all of them) all the way through current. I retain the older work as a reminder for myself of what my level once was, to compare how far I have come, and as a way to hopefully remind new artists that they too will grow in their art.

Samhain or Halloween is here. The leaves fall and crunch below feet after blazing in glory. The nights are filled with even more magic. Not all is quite right in Rhiana though and the air does not carry the usual smells.  What's going on? Is is saf

Illya Leonov and I did a collaboration video on his Youtube. He asked me to read the lyrics for Ode to Billy Joe as a poem so that he could discuss them.

I will slowly bring my Fur Affinity gallery up to date. There is not as much there, and its main purpose is for those few works that I do not feel fully comfortable having in the gallery here that is more of a general audience place, but do wish to

Hi AmehanaRainStarDrago,

May I please inquire, why the interest in the Ryukyu Islands? Just curious. If too intrusive of a question, I now apologize for that.

Thanxs,

Marc :) !!!!!!

Part is because my father was in Okinawa long before I was born and helped with some reconstruction of a shrine there. Part is because I have a strong spiritual reason I don't speak of publicly. Part is because something happened there of strong spiritual significance to my father which also stays within a small group of people.
