I am an artist of many mediums who is drawn by the pursuit of the esoteric and divine feminine archetypes. After working on the portraits in ink for the Inspirational Women Series (2018-2020), I moved my attention towards the study of Norse Runes as well as the Qabalah in the Western Mystery Tradition. These were long time interests of mine that I wanted to get to know more in depth. I started learning the symbols and paths by illustrating them. Norse Runes ZIne is my take on the visual meanings of the Elder Futhark and my Tarot Major Arcana Prints can take months to produce as I am manifesting what that particular path means in my actual life before I sit down to illustrate it. In the meantime I also started the Other Worlds Series (2020-current), which is photo manipulated menstrual art. I collect my menstrual blood and use a pouring technique to create unique photographs, which I then post process in Adobe Photoshop. And don't worry, none of the original art goes to waste; it actually makes a great houseplant fertilizer.
