Transmissions for an increasingly complex and beautiful world.

Signs of Solidarity

Last week a bunch of women (several I’ve only “met” on Instagram) gathered at my home to make some art that could be printed and posted in response to the racist, xenophobic and hateful rhetoric becoming increasingly common in the wake of the election. I called for submissions and we incorporated some of those suggestions into our works. Feel free to… Read more →

Artists For Love?

I have been asked to create artwork under the hashtag #artistsforlove, a self-described “movement” just launched by Flora Bowley + Kelly Rae Roberts. If you’ve been following me lately, you’ll see I’ve been up to my own collective art making in response to the dystopian hellscape unfolding before us in the wake of the election.   I want my little corner… Read more →

On Election Day

Whether you’re ignoring the spectacle, voting third party, canvassing door to door   Whether you’re with her or against her   Whether you’re collapse-conscious upgrading your starseed DNA awaiting alien abduction bingeing on Netflix or twirling your spindle stick over a pile of cattail tinder   Whether you’re mystified, enraged, or just straight faced emoji about the whole thing  … Read more →

The End Of My DreamCatcher Career

I posted this recently on my Facebook page(s) but wanted to elaborate a bit here, especially about cultural appropriation, which is so much more than something people fight about on Tumblr.   One way a bioregional animist friend of mine explained cultural appropriation was to “steal from the ancestors without giving back.” It’s the practice of one privileged group (often… Read more →

September Workshops: Indigo Shibori + Mixed Media Textiles

#MagicalRadical Art Camp was beyond the beyond of what I had hoped for. “Free, real, warm.” “Luscious, Full, Supportive.” “So badass! Blissful. Rejuvenating.” I’m offering two shorter workshops in September: Indigo Shibori Dying + Stamping, and Basic Weaving + Mixed Media Macramé Scholarships + payment plans are available. Space is limited however. But come check out my Portland pink palace.… Read more →

On Mother’s Day

I want to celebrate all the motherlovers and unmothered motherless others     I want to summon, gather and make noise for all tied tubes, hyster sisters, severed bloodlines and lineage breakers     I want to jump out of giant uterus shaped cake and give every stepmom in the world a bouquet of herbs no self-described shamanic practitioner cantillating… Read more →

Milk Carton Fairy House DIY

I posted an image of what we called FAIRYLANDIA on my Instagram and I got enough requests for a DIY I put this one together. Thank god the kids in my life are interested in the same wackadoodle epic craft endeavors that I am because I’d rather eat glass than have imaginary tea parties. It all kind of started with… Read more →

More Than A Prayer: Mass Shootings + Masculinity

Yesterday, I went to Planned Parenthood. I had to pass by an armed guard at the entrance because hegemonic masculinity has militarized my vagina.   Men are losing their shit.   *Ahem*– white, cis “MEN”. ← It should be noted.   They don’t make air quotes big enough for the kind of “men” perpetrating these crimes.   And it does… Read more →
