A practicing witch for 13 years, I believe that magic is all around me; from the beautiful landscape that surrounding me in the Northwest to the mundane tasks of my daily life.  My spirituality is the inspiration to my creative process.  Through my portraiture and fine art I strive to make the unseen, seen.  I believe that there is a sacredness inherent in every aspect of life. The struggles and the breakthrough, the ordinary and the sublime, the painful and the ecstatic is all part of the experience and it is this sacredness that I strive to honor and illuminate in all of my work.
