I am writing and illustrating "Hedge Woman's Song," a collection of fables and wonder stories, some of my own invention and others inspired by folklore traditions. All of these stories affirm, in their own idiosyncratic ways, the idea that the human world and the natural world are not at all separate, but part of the same deep continuum of life. This idea is embodied by the hedge woman, the kindly, wise, tricksy, practical old lady who flits in and out of the stories, weaving them together. At the center of the book is her own story: how this crone, the witch and fairy godmother of all wonder stories, found her infinite wisdom.

I want to create this book as a thing of real beauty, richly illuminated with intricate black and white illustrations. If you choose to support this labor of love you will get access to a blog, called The Forest, where I will post excerpts from the text and images of illustrations in progress, as well as essays on folklore, nature connection, and my artistic inspirations. I will also send you various other goodies as the project progresses, like prints of finished artwork and hand-drawn pagan holiday cards!
