WHERE ART MEETS MAGICK MEETS HEALING
MORE ABOUT A HEART THAT COMES TRUE
I am a queer feminist artist residing in the magickal city of Salem, MA. My work is guided by feminist activism and how it intersects and explores social justice in the form of reclaiming lived experiences, storytelling, and healing art making.
I believe creativity is a necessary and critical aspect of understanding who we are and how we respond to the world around us. Creativity is healing and can provide outlets for processing emotions, past events, and current anxieties. Creativity allows us to fully understand ourselves and how our identities intersect with each other and with the larger world around us. We are all creative and there is no ONE way to be creative. From making zines to cosmic smashbooking, all of my work focuses on healing and reclaiming our own power.
I'd love to work with you and bring the healing power of art and creativity into your world. I can work with kids to seniors in a workshop setting to a classroom.
Whatever you are thinking, we can make it work.
All of the proceeds earned here will go to my nonprofit foundation, A Heart That Comes True. I started the foundation in 2016 in memory of my niece, Elise, who took her own life on December 31, 2015. The foundation aims to help young LGBTQ+ people overcome suicidal thoughts and depression through donations, fundraisers, LGBTQ+ advocacy, and zine workshops.
For transparency, here are some of the places/causes I have made donations to in the last 6 months:
Communities United Against Police Brutality
Southern Poverty Law Center
Valley Youth House
I define zines as a handmade paper publication for sharing stories/personal narratives that aren't represented in mainstream media.
My zines focus on activism, feminism, suicide awareness and prevention, and body politics.
WHEREVER YOU ARE, I CAN BE!
The work I do is mobile. From zines to cosmic smashbooking, I can lead workshops wherever you are.
Let's plan something together!
