my life history -short version- chicago to burbs, burbs to bloomington, bloomington to blue lake, blue lake to portland, portland back to chicago, chicago back to portland.
i started this business in portland "lockdown" during the pandemic. this is my first solo collection
why speak oracle?- i dont think i'm alone when i create - there is something in the room with me. i don’t know what this something is. my muse, maybe? it’s beyond my understanding but has been helping me my entire creative journey. i'll say under my breath when i'm in the studio, "speak, oracle. speak!" i ask questions. i seek her guidance. sometimes i can't hear, too much noise. other times inspiration comes through loud and clear. if you own one of my pieces, you now apart of that conversation. let me know what you think.
thank you for your support, stay safe!
