Priestess

I am an ordained Priestess in the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple in the realm of Sacred Vision, a title reflecting my gifts and service as an artist, divinatrix, and sacred maker.

I am a fine artist, illustrator, and jeweler with a lifelong passion for the magical. I’ve been creating my own sacred art in various media for decades: from hand printed linocut icons, original hex signs, painted Goddesses, and my self published tarot and oracle decks, “The Incidental Tarot” in 2012 and “A Curious Oracle” in 2015. My husband and I have built Forge and Fountain together, a magical partnership creating sacred adornments with an esthetic of beauty, mythos and spirit. We also craft unique tools and magical accessories such as forged offering bowls, braziers, incense burners and candle scribes.

My current illustration work is focused on my second tarot deck in progress, the Sibylline Tarot, and an ongoing devotional project illustrating the Goddesses of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple in collaboration with Mandala Priestess Yeshe Matthews. The Goddess images are available as prints in my shop and at The Sacred Well in the form of prayer cards, votive candles and prints. 

My art also takes the form of potions, provisions and preparations from my garden and foraging in the wild around my home in Northern California. I craft these offerings in small batches in harmony with the seasons and the Goddesses of my personal mandala. Some of my seasonal offerings are available in the Temple’s monthly Goddess Kits, whose sales benefit the scholarship fund for our Priestesses.

I am a Priestess of Hekate, whose many epithets inform the framework of my personal spiritual mandala and wheel of the year. I honor Isis, Brigid, Stella Maris, and Persephone as my cardinal goddesses, and am currently dedicated in a year of study and devotion to the goddess Sophia and the serpent spirit Naga Kanya.

I offer different spiritual services including Tarot and Oracle readings, house blessings, magical consultations, personalized tools, talismans and amulets, and ritual preparations for ceremonies, sacred celebrations, and living magically with the seasons. I am co-teacher of Via Carmen Pythia with Priestess Yeshe, a two year Sibyl Priestess training program offered in the Temple. 

With whispers of the wild,
