The Maritime Mystic’s Kitchen

Welcome to the kitchen table!

I’m an artist and mystic who has been a student of Tarot since 1989 and Chaldean Numerology since 1993. I’ve been making art most of my life but I only started to call myself an artist in 2008 when I realized that I was standing in front of a classroom teaching sculptured nail art and color theory to a roomful of strangers who thought I was pretty good at it.

I stopped making art for myself in the late 90s. In 2016 I picked up my art supplies again and began drawing and painting. I enjoy creating wildlife and pet portraits. My favorite subjects are birds, foxes, and ocean life. For the last two years, I have also investigated surrealism and created paintings that revolve around our attachment to technology. I’m a big fan of tech and new things – AI is my new favorite toy! I am also reacquainting myself with needle and wet felting AND studying painting with Plasticine – it’s so much fun getting messy!

Here, I write about divination, mysticism, and art. If you go down the rabbit hole in these posts you can even find the remnants of my old crochet design blogs.
