When I say the word “passages”, what first comes to mind?

A journey? Travel over oceans to new exotic lands?

Or passages of scripture? Ecclesiastes 3:1-8?


How about the story of Chloë, a young girl caught in a whimsical adventure traversing the passage from Naivety to Faith?

Passages is a series that follows young Chloë on this fantastical adventure. Her journey will take her through strange sights of enchanted rain storms, fields of larger than life thistles, and stark desert plains. It is during her passage through these lands where she will learns the value of hardship, the meaning of true friends, and the strength of faith. Created as a whimsical allegory for the passage we all undertake when growing from childhood to adulthood, the symbolism found in the fantastical props and couture elements of Passages tell the stories of our individual journeys through weakness to strength, and doubt to faith. Chloë’s journey symbolizes the path we all must take to become who we truly wish to be.

This is Chloe’s story. But it is also my story. And it is also yours.

Come join the adventure and see the magic in your own Passage.

In gratitude for your support, I have carefully considered how best to reward your patronage of my work with the rewards tiers I have created. Perhaps this is rather cheesy and has been said overly too much, but with complete honesty, every single dollar counts (I shop at thrift stores… dollars can go quite a ways for me... truly). I promise, in turn, to make every dollar you’ve spent to be completely worth your investment.

And of course, if at any time you feel this is not the case, do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected]. We’re in this together, after all.
