Dreams & Botanicals
Cosmic visions and botanical inspiration - Dreams & Botanicals began with its iconic Tarot Dream Catchers. Each dream catcher takes inspiration from a card from the major arcana and archetypes.
We have since branched out into other themes such as elemental and zodiac themed dream catchers for the astrological witches out there.
Some of our most loved products are our Celtic Ogham Runes wood burned onto wood slices. We also have a new Sabbat wood burn collection coming out this summer with Samhain being the kickstarter.

Lil Shop of Pourers
I choose acrylic pouring as my primary method. This allows me to choose colors and ultimately palettes that properly convey my mood, mind set, and focus from one piece to another. I paint in multiple colors of my own mixture, creation, and unique names. Layered and blown with an air brush to reveal exquisite, undulating shapes on the canvases that are gloss varnished to shiny perfection.
My art is abstract and I create based on my emotions and experiences from one day to the next. In this way each piece is a reflection of how unique each new day is and at the same time how chaotic it can be. The beauty of each painting lies in the viewer. Not unlike staring at clouds, the individual can observe and experience something unique to them in every piece they see.
I also like to combine my love for painting with my background in graphic design and my passion for typography. I'm currently working on a series of bookmarks and small illustration pieces from multiple points of inspiration in my life. Not to mention some small oddity sculptures.

Whirls of Acrylic
My art is about transporting the viewer into a world of my own making. Where dragons and fire worms exist, and skeletons can move despite no longer having the tendons and ligaments to do so. A world of my own design, a mix of the past and present, real and fiction.
