TL;DR ... I'm part of a number of marginalized communities.
I make art, I plan, I do readings & energy work


Your support of my Patreon allows me to do these things
while still being able to guard my mental, emotional, physical,
& spiritual spaces...but most of all
It allows me to be a beacon of hope & inspiration
to those who need it...


Who am I + Why does any of this matter?


Let's get down to brass tacks...

I am a W/POC.
I deal with mental health issues (Major Depressive Disorder, Panic Disorder w/ Agoraphobia, & (C-)PTSD.
I am Pagan (specifically an Eclectic Discordian).
I identify as a QueerFemme (pronouns: she/they).
I am a Furry (hai thar! =^.^=)

These specifics inform my life & my world view (as they do for all people). They color the experiences I have with other people & can result in negative experiences at times. They are also integral to my identity & how I relate to others. I state them here to give as accurate a description of myself as I can. While labels can be limiting they can also be freeing...there is solidarity in shared identities.

Representation matters.
Identity matters.
Self-perception matters.

It's easy to look around & not see yourself and thusly despair. But I feel that isn't necessary as We (whoever/whatever) are all around. So I set out a beacon so others can find me & hopefully find others like them and find a sense of peace.

You don't need to fit in a box.
You don't have to follow societal rules or expectations (when it comes to identity).

Being yourself is a unique & special freedom. And it's my hope in living my life as I am & sharing it with you that you too have that freedom.

I am also recovering from heteronormative, racist, & sexist conditioning (and if you're reading this you probably are too, we've been steep "in this tea" so long that most of these ideas & actions are automatic & they take unlearning.) This means I will make mistakes, and then I will be called to account on them, and I will do best to make my affronts right & discontinue them.

As I was raised being myself wasn't acceptable. I was the "weird, depressed kid", I didn't belong anywhere, and I felt a special kind of isolation as a result. And while I turned out okay I think I understand the toll such a life has on one's psyche in a personal manner.

So I'm ultimately here to encourage you to be you, whoever/whatever that is & to embrace that fully. To shed labels that don't fit (or all of them if you don't dig labels) & come into who you are...to create yourself, rather than be constantly & solely defined by others.

What's my purpose here?

To show inside the mind of the artist, what it's like to be & feel creative on the regular, show where & how I get my inspiration, & explore my creative journey (so you can live out your own!)

I want to dispel any myths about what being creative means & all those ideas people have about what it means to be creative & what a creative person looks like, how they act, & what they do. In short I'm sharing the #reallifeartist as I call it.

What you'll see here...

Most of my introductory tier stuff will consist of weekly videos (aka "Nosh" Tier) that delve into various creative projects I have going on. You can expect this rough guideline as a schedule:

  • Sunday: #Stashcast (wherein I show you something from my stash, talk about what it's for, & more importantly what I'm doing with it).
  • Monday: #MotivationMonday (these will come as they apply, I'll be talking about what's got me going for the week & hopefully motivate you too! Alternatively/additionally I'll talk about my #WeeklyGoals.)
  • Tuesday: #ArtHaul or #IntuitiveHaul (I'll explore some specific things I've bought, generally as I've bought them, with some why & what along with it. This may also include things I've received in the mail or as a donation.)
  • Wednesday: #WIPWednesday (you get to see what I'm working on, how it's going, what's left, & hear about my feels on the project. On weeks where I've done a #WeeklyGoals cast on Mondays, I'll also check in about those here!)
  • Thursday: #ProjectTime (currently a short livestream of me working on something, minimal conversation to maximize your artistic ogling)
  • Friday: #FOFriday (whatever's gotten finished in the last week you'll see here! If nothing has been finished this'll be a potluck post chosen from my super secret squirrel list!)

Other posts that will interrupt this schedule, but are done on a monthly basis (aka "Hors d'oeuvres" Tier) + "Potluck Posts":

  • #Kalendcast: done on the first of the month to review & plan.
  • Saturday: #StudioShare (first Saturday of the month only. Other Saturdays will be potluck posts chosen from my super secret squirrel list!)
  • #Lunarcast (New Moon edition) & (Full Moon edition): done on the New or Full Moon respectively. I'll talk about the energy of the Sun, Moon, & then check out the energy for the day specifically from a numerological perspective!
  • #Sabbatcast: special casts talking about the Celtic Wheel of the Year holidays (which figures into my personal practice)...I'll dish any & everything about these days including some mythos, recipes, activities etc.
  • #CTM (Celtic Tree Month): this is a new cast I'm introducing that will be talking about the qualities & energies of the Celtic Tree Month, similar to an astrological-ish forecast...but with Trees!
  • #BuJoSetup: this is a forthcoming cast dedicated to me setting up my Bullet Journal, in whatever form I'm using at the moment. This may be a full set up (unlined paper, from scratch) or it might be me just entering things into my planner BuJo style. Always done on the last day of the month for the following month!

Potluck Posts are chosen from a running list of other topics that may or may not relate to me, my work, my life. These are chosen at random based on what I have to say at a given moment so they may not appear in any particular order. These posts may or may not be Patrons only as they are typically infrequent & a bit less formal.

I'll also do a random Lens here & there, as the mood strikes or I come across something I find interesting or amusing enough to share. These will be largely public as they are short & don't last for more than 24 hours!  And as a little bonus you get in on my Monthly Reiki Share automagically* (to quote a mentor of mine)!

Additional tiers include extras outside of weekly & monthly postings like: communal candle rite ("Elevenses" Tier), meditative message ("Entrée: Tier), & all the art knowledge know-how ("Smörgåsbord" Tier)!

A final note...nearly all of my posts will be Patrons Only, so if you want to get the goods you'll have to pledge! You start getting access to casts & regular (weekly) posts at $1 and it goes on up from there!

In closing...

As a naturally connected creatrix my journey has been one of relative ease...and yet it's still touched with magick & meaning. Herein I invite you into the inner sanctum of my creativity, to watch the ebb & flow of creation, and to see the facilitation from raw to refined.

Thank you for your witnessing, your friendship, your willingness...to explore creativity, inspiration & invite myth, magick, and meaning into your everyday life! ❤
