What inspires you?
Nature, old Hollywood/midnight movies, magic, philosophy, Americana.
Where is your favorite place to make art?
sitting outside in my backyard or in my bedroom.
What is your main medium & what do you love about it?
These days my main medium is poetry and writing. I love it because you can create worlds/feelings and imagine the impossible through language.
What are you listening to right now?
"Moonchild" by King Crimson, oldies/jazz standards from the 1920s, The Beach Boys, and "The Killing Moon" by Nouvelle Vague.
What projects are you working on right now?
I'm starting to formulate a series of short stories interconnected by similar themes. Some of the project's influences are true crime, Baudrillard's "hyperreality," the paranormal, 70s/80s horror movies, Stephen King novels and feelings of loneliness/solitude/isolation.
about the stones
black lava is a stone of guidance, understanding, purpose, & inner strength. created out of the destructive chaos of volcanoes, it helps you to thrive and to follow your dreams. resonating with the root chakra, black lava offers stability & calm in times of change.
black tourmaline is grounding & supportive. it protects by turning negative energy into positive energy. this dark stone unearths your power & self-confidence, empowering you through difficulties.
