My Bio
Born in California and raised in the wild open spaces and forested mountains of Montana, with some time spent in India along the way, my journey thus far has been challenging, surprising, and endlessly inspiring. As an artist, I seek to express the universal spiritual underpinnings of the human experience through the incorporation of myth, legend, and fable in my work, in addition to sacred geometry and symbols from a variety of cultures and epochs.
I have a particular love for living art, bringing the body into the process of creation, allowing our physical and spiritual selves to communicate through symbolism and integration. Tattoos throughout time and many diverse cultures have been one of humanity's ways of expressing identity and beauty, whether permanent or temporary (such as henna). I specialise in designing unique tattoos for individuals, incorporating personal experience and traditional symbolism to help people bring some of what they wear inside to a place others can see it.
Someday in the not-too-distant future, I hope to be enabled to apply the tattoos I design myself, so anything you can do to support me toward that goal is appreciated more than I could ever express with words... that's why I'm offering some real-life rewards in exchange, so if you're intrigued, check out my Patreon account for early access to content, as well as a greater range of work.

Patreon account!

Hey all, Just wanted to share the news that my Patreon account is now up and running, so feel free to check it out and let me know what you think! I will be posting more regular updates and content there than I have here, since it allows a bit more control of my work/distribution, although the trickle-down effect will mean that a lot of it ends up here eventually, for those patient enough to wait. <3

We have officially relocated to the woods! Now that we are living in a little faerie-cottage in the forest, I'm determined to focus more intentionally on developing my artistic skills & connections, so look for more work to come soon… I am also open for commissions at the moment, so message me if you have an idea or request in mind... I specialise in tattoo design, though I also do many other things.

Art, art, art!

Art, art, art!

Well, the last year slipped right by me before I knew it, but it was just what it needed to be. I was observing a vow of silence for the year, so some of my plans for last year - like pursuing a tattoo apprenticeship, for example - got put on the back burner while I sorted out some of my other priorities. I've spent a lot of that time making new art, which I'm now uploading a little at a time rather than just dumping a massive load of new images into my gallery all at once. My plans for tattooing have shifted, given the past year's experiences and studies, but I've approached the artist I'm most interested in locally about coming in to observ
