  • Illustrations from Ritual

    A large portion creating Ritual was devoted to drawing each of the 9 rituals. I began illustrating these drawings of my ‘Healing Hands’ in my sketchbook with black 02 micron pens. After I drew these by hand, I scanned them into my computer and created the color separations in Photoshop so that I could make these risograph prints at Lemon Drop Press.

    I made a few copies of each illustrations and I’m thinking of having a way for  people to buy them (Probably on my Etsy shop, InnerStellarArt). But for for now I’m just giving out one free print per Ritual purchase. So make sure to buy a copy of Ritual online.

  • Ritual Witch Zine Is COMPLETE

    FINALLY

    Ritual is a book project that I’ve been working on for a little over a year and I finally have the finished copy in my hands today! Ritual witch zine is also available for sale online if you can’t make it to the release party on February 17 from 6-10PM in Oakland, CA.

    This book features the magical rituals of 9 artists and alternative healers. This book is 48-pages of pure magic and is risograph printed in blue. I illustrated most of the art in this zine, except for the inside of the front cover by @sludgepony and one of the images of the Protexion Ritual by Maren Preston.

    Here’s the table of contents so you can see what’s to come.

    • Alpha Wolf Prayer by Katie Wheeler-Dubin

    • General Offering Rite by Geo Padamanda

    • Rose New Moon Ritual by Jessica Wakeman

    • Waxing Moon Celebration of Life by Sayuri Kimbell

    • Acupressure to Banish the Patriarchy by Katrina Hanson

    • Grounding Safe Space Ritual by Anjelica Colliard

    • Sleepy Time Tincture by Victoria Hungerford

    • Protexion Ritual by Mothraqueen

    • Siren Song by Gabriel Christian

    I illustrated a series of drawings for Ritual. A hand or pair of hands for each ritual. Making these drawings and collages was probably the most interesting part for me because I don’t draw too much these days so this was nice to draw with microns again.

    If you are interested in buying this zine, please go here!

    Thank you to all the contributors and I will announce more details for the Ritual release party soon!

  • New Embroidered Artworks

    Embroidery Collage Art

    In continuation of my obsession with collages and embroidery, I made a few small pieces for an art show last month.

    The prints are of collages that I made a while back. Too often in my practice, I feel negatively about my work. When I made this collage series, it was the first time in a long time that I felt relaxed and happy in my creative process. I hope the imagery reflects a state of relaxation and a connection with the future and the past.

    Please let me know if you’re interested in purchasing any of these pieces! They measure roughly 12″ x 12″ and come framed.

  • Japanese Demon Women Collage Series

    Yuki-Onna Snow Woman Japanese MythNEW COLLAGE SERIES: JAPANESE DEMON WOMEN

    Japan is my motherland and a country with a rich history of demon and ghost lore.  I find myself becoming more and more drawn to my Japanese roots as I become increasingly disillusioned with America and my ability to ‘make it’ as an American female-identifying artist. Many Japanese ghost stories revolve around women in murderous situations – an unfaithful husband or survival in the cold depths of winter – and are transformed by those experiences, filled with unrelenting rage and undeniable insanity. These Japanese demon women remind me of the harpies of Western Greek mythology.

    I identify with the anger and wrath of these demons and the persistence of their restless spirits to haunt and hunt down the men that oppressed, cheated, or killed them. In a time when women, especially women of color, are being exploited, degraded and cheated in the United States, I think it’s important to revisit these stories of ‘unfeminine’ emotions like wrath and intense grief as a stern warning of what’s to come if we women are tested.

    As an artist, I usually turn to illustration to tell stories, but for this particular project I was drawn to the images in American magazines like Vogue and National Geographic. Please enjoy my work in progress for this series of seven collages inspired by Japanese folk tales of the ghost women that haunt the cities and countrysides of Japan.
