Dark Moon Coven June 2018

About…

Art and writing are the two things that have transformed my life. Being a witch who has a deep connection with spirit and nature helps. I create oracle and tarot card art, read cards, mentor creative people who wish to connect creativity with spirituality, and teach the occasional university class. My passion is in community and capacity building and equity through the arts.
