Dragonleaf Incense Burner-
This was so much fun to make and I'm happy I can finally share this! This dragon is nfs, as he has already found a loving home ❤️ But! I will be taking orders for full size and half size dragons, their appearance and style inspired by the type of leaf depicted for the stand. Currently, I'd like to work off a selection of Maple, Oak, American Holly, and Marajuana leaf inspired dragons if anyone is interested! The leaf stand is large enough to also serve as a candle holder and sage burner, DM me for more details :) #clay #instagood #smokingdoobies #polymerclay #supersculpey #sculpture #sculptor #multifaceted #funtionalart #incense #sageburning #spiritual #artheals #positivevibes #cleansing #inwiththepositive #outwiththenegative #followme #artistforhire #seattleartist #pacificnw #happiness #love #lifeisbeautiful

.: What Are You Gaurding? :.
This is a very special retouch for me :) some people know that I actually did darkroom for almost 7 years as an adolescent and manual photo processing is something I still miss and love very deeply. This is a double exposure I did when I was 15 years old, I spent days correcting this photograph on a rickety enlarger and changing my chemical times to get this final image. As a teenager and young adult, I struggled for the better part of a decade with an eating disorder and drug addiction, this photo being a very literal glimpse into the facade that I and so many others hide behind out of necessity in every day life. For anyone reading this who is struggling, you are not alone. And life beyond the weight of your demons is more beautiful than the sum of your internal battles. You are loved, you are beautiful, and recovery is possible.

This is another retouch of a set I did several years ago. Normally I don't share previous work I've done because I'm hyper critical of what I did when I was younger and less experienced, but I still really love this one :) #tbt #makeup #makeupartist #photographer #photographersoul #macabre #charactermakeup #harleyquinn #batman #nerd #nerdvana #harleyandjoker #scary #dark #nightmarefuel #scream #actor #seattlemodels #seattle #abandonedplaces #fearless #dcnation #instagood #rigidcollodion #comics #followme #bennye #mehron #pacificnw

Let us go then, you and I, When the evening is spread out against the sky Like a patient etherised upon a table; Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets, The muttering retreats Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells: Streets that follow like a tedious argument Of insidious intent To lead you to an overwhelming question.
Oh, do not ask, "What is it?" Let us go and make our visit.
In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo. -T.S Elliot

I seem to be the face that appears on my own IG the least, but I realized I have never shared this photo on my account before! This also is giving me the motivation to get back to the gym(inspite of my crazy work schedule) because I promised myself that my reward for achieving my fitness goals would be to start on my next 2 tattoo peices :) Photo by Jason Deetz

She lived on in his memory as an ephemeral alchemist; a conjuror of the temporary, firefly kissed magic of youth that left with outstretched fingers searching for her flaxen hair and the passing haze of summer.

"Hope is with you when you believe 
The earth is not a dream but living flesh, 
that sight, touch, and hearing do not lie, 
That all things you have ever seen here 
Are like a garden looked at from a gate. 
You cannot enter. But you're sure it's there." -Czeslaw Milosz 📷 By me, @meredithstrikesagain

.: Lyra Constellation- Orpheus and His Golden Lyre :. Happy Thanksgiving everybody! This is an oldie but one that I wanted to share today :) According to Greek mythology, Orpheus was a poet, musician, and prophet that was said to be the most talented musician of all time. Apollo taught Orpheus to play the Lyre when he was just a boy and it was said he was able to charm the heavens, all earthly and celestial animals, and inspire the trees to dance to his sublime music. The sheet music depicted is the opening bars to Claire de Lune :) #thanksgiving #thankful #femaleartist #femalevocalist #coloredpencils #visualarts #prismacolor #greekmythology #orpheus #lyra #constellation #astrology #taurus #celestial #girlswhoplayguitar #seattle #seattleartist #pacificnw #musicismedicine #clairedelune #debussy #heartoftheartist #musicheals #multifaceted

Isolation is the cathedral of exalted inspiration for those who have the most to say and all of themselves to give.
PS. I know I'm not following the rules for this thing but I don't give a shit

Ha! When Spotify shuffles the song you wrote 🤓 until this popped up I actually wasn't aware this album was on Spotify and Pandora, so this was too ironic not to share
