Art Portfolio

I have always had a passion for art, and enjoy exploring  the esoteric and spiritual qualities of pen, pencil and paint. Most of my work reflects my spiritual beliefs, and is often devotional. I choose to discard the “meanings” and “synopsis” that Institutions impose upon art,  as I feel that art should be able to speak on a soul level to any who experience it. Some of my work tends toward the gothic, the victorian, the whimsical, but always my art comes from my heart and soul. It is also for this reason that I have chosen to display the pieces that I am most proud of. I always seek to experiment, improve and fulfill my souls calling with my art pieces. My art is displayed on this page from newest to oldest, and reflects the transformations in my life from the first experimentations into using magically charged substances, to my folkloric explorations of modern witchcraft.

  1. I really like your portrayal of the Ravens. Ravens and crows and all the other corvids have been very powerful totems and friends to me. I liken the crows here in the South to the bad biker boys of the avian realm LOL. The bluejays in my neighborhood help protect my rabbit from hawks when we sit on the deck. What a racket they make!

    • Thank you very much! I like that “bad biker boys” LOL. Here there is often a brawl between the crows and the Kiewits because the crows go after their eggs, it’s a rather interesting spectacle.
