"From a ripe age, defining myself apart from the destruction of dysfunction of my environment became a clear need. Openly adoring all things punk or obscure, and inspired by joy from silver linings, I set out to pursue art. As a neurodivergent survivor, the true avenue for expression was always creative - my inner child knew doing so was an act of reclamation and rebellion. This was my first healer.”
"As years went on, early impressions left by East Bay Punx and crossroads with the paranormal, primed me for the road to come. I set out to pursue tattooing young, gaining soulful footing while rawly uncertain. During this time, body art - what I call Imprinting - became my medicine. To me: the worlds between tattoo medicine, therapy, ritual and cultural history are inseparable. It came as a shock, that there was little conversation of these commonalities in my craft. This has only shifted again in recent years. With sacred tattooing to awaken a sense of fortitude, I began channeling an interconnected approach. Lines drawn between modalities morphed into a wholesome view of life’s Canvas, revealing a loom full of remedy.”
“To piece together fragments of value from each experience, we must take part in a transmutation process. The beginning doesn’t look like the end, the Canvas changes constantly. Throughout time, practices dearest to me developed into different projects. Thus Sacred Pokes, my book Two Spirit Traditions, and the Garden of Eeden have been born. Now symbiotic as a set of wings, these works sing to collective, culturally creative revitalization. The herbs, thread, paint and rhythm guide my narrative as an artist. This Earth, my experiences and our ancestors guide my approach as a care provider. Through ceremony, visionary art, and psychology, this work refines our liberation. I call back to birthrights of joy, release, and primal wisdom. Reconciling within humanity’s wounds within ourselves, for pure and unapologetic magick."

I shed the scales
that were engrained into my
genetic integrity, so they drop
off my skin
one by one.
From the bones that built
this sanctuary of a body
shelter from the storm,
to the break of a nail
whole, I become.
Within a flame of the
ancestors who brought me here,
I break down my doubt
I demolish my fear
good riddance, my threshold.
Only I will, swiftly and alone
surpass each gateway,
outward from here
this chest pounds courage
into my capillaries, threefold.
By virtue of knowing what
spot is tender on this skull, I hone
its sensitivity, an Achilles Heel
to a hum of heart-space
giving guidance by tone.
Saying “Listen in the cold,
for it is
Sip in the boiling sun,
for it is
I follow suit.
In the presence of extremities,
when my wounds are wet
and faintly dripping
I hear an earthen child calling,
their embrace an honor.
She has chosen her guardian
to be the one who fought for
what’s lashed and plagued her,
taking the whip
instead turning it against
