A little about me

I was raised on my ancestral Secwepemc land of the Central Interior of British Columbia. I am a Herbalist, Dream Weaver and Story Teller raised in the heart of the Cariboo Chilcotin.

Creating for me is like tangible prayers, I empty myself and meet spirit half way. It is sometimes tricky to stay out of the way of the process… but it is the only way that innocence and magic can happen, by this I am continuously humbled.

Inspired by mystical experiences, dreams, nature, multi-cultural realities, imagination, inner and outer mysteries, fellow artisans and what dreams may come.

A synthesis of many mediums aid in the orchestra of my artistic expressions… I merely allow myself to be guided through the labyrinth of each new unveiling. A Piscean who wishes to address and honour the multidimensional realities we are all touched by, be they that of Nature, myths, dreamscapes, emotional undercurrents, Spirit, imagination and the unknown.

I believe that creativity is a valuable resource to our well being often overlooked by western society. It is my life purpose to dwell in the creative and share, to inspire and be inspired towards a more beautiful existence.

Life is a gift and I am humbled by all that I do not know.

I am grateful every day for all the blessings of this beautiful life.
