Creative Blocks, Begone! Working with the Full Moon in Leo + Eclipse

February 10, 2017

Full Moon in Leo + Eclipse asks you: “How can you overcome the material circumstances obstructing the full expression of your creativity?” The Moon is the moody, swiftly changing, silvery being that pulls tide, that coaxes our physical cycles of fertility, that turns us into werewolves, that illuminates our darkest hours.

December 2, 2016

Witches or Witch-curious folks! Check out my recent piece in CARLA on the power of witchcraft in the Los Angeles art world. “More and more frequently we’re seeing contemporary artists utilize the methodologies of witchcraft in their practice, largely because, by its very nature, witchcraft is a political and creative act commanding power back into the hands of people who have historically been banished from the inner circles of cultural authority.” Art Witches unite!

So, if you’re just tuning in, I was describing my time in Amsterdam at 20 years old. Broke, friendless, in the freezing cold, with the school that I’d gone there to attend boarded up and empty.

October 10, 2016

In my last post, we left off in San Francisco. I was a 19-year-old stripper with a passion for dance, a prescription for psych meds, and a desire to see the world.

With $2,000 saved up, I bought a one-way AirTran ticket for “anywhere in Europe” and landed in Paris ready for my grand tour. Following the advice of an Ouija board, I arrived in…
