Walk The Land
The Walk the Land collection was inspired by my time in the interior west.
It was a very quiet time in my life that felt isolating so I started taking daily walks in the sagebrush hills and found a deep peace in those walks, a groundedness. I felt such a profound connection to the land beneath me. I grew up in a small town in the foothills of the high desert so this land felt like home but had never experience a relationship with land like this before.
Walking the land became my most powerful spiritual practice and pathway to self. I am forever grateful for those sage hills.
The Exposed||Vulnerable collection was inspired during a time when I was travelling around the US and without a physical home. The pieces are made with no home - an energy of being recharged and lost - completely human.
These pieces are truth-tellers, reminders that we are all on this rugged + beautiful path. They hold community and healing in the universal truth - we are all seeking.
The Abundance collection was inspired by the symbolism of the serpent. I've had dreams of serpents for years - at first they frightened me but then I realized the power they held - the guidance they gave me.
Serpents are a sign of rebirth/transition/abundance. The wares of this collection are a reminder that we are brand new in every moment, constantly evolving into our truest self.
