Healing from nature.
$10
per month
Along my walks I often find little bits of nature, flowers, shells, crystals. I pick them up and carry them in my pocket or place them on an altar in my home. At this tier, I'll send you a photo print of my monthly finds, and a description of the magical qualities that these items historically have been associated with. I'll also include the personal meanings they have to me.

About

I am a zine maker, photographer, and book publisher. My work focuses on survivors, lesbian/queer narratives and healing.  I've been writing my personal zine, Mend My Dress since 2005. I have also taught workshops on zine making and writing to heal from trauma. With Mend My Dress Press I publish and distribute works by other artists of different marginalized identities. I believe in the healing powers of shared experiences and solidarity. I also have been studying magic and spell crafting for over 20 years, with a focus on protective and healing magic. I work with plants and stones along with other natural elements. Color therapy, candle magic, and in the last three years the tarot have all been supportive tools for me. I draw my upbringing in a neo-pagan home, and research I have done on the historical magical practices of the cultures I have descended from. I look forward to sharing my art, creative process and knowledge with you. Thank you for reading, and thank you for your support! I will send out rewards to those who pledge once a month.✨
