I started this blog in March of 2017 after returning from a trip to my ancestral land - Ireland. There, I received affirmation that I was on the right track with my life - as it all came together in my art, project space and herbalism practice. I discovered a history of Herbalists on both sides of my family which formulated a conceptual framework for everything I do - from being a mom, making ceremonial and fertility sculptures, running an Herbal Remedy Shop and providing opportunities for cultural exchange through 184 Project Space.
The posts are in chronological order, starting with #1, so you'll have to scroll down to get to the beginning. In them I illuminate a series of coincidences, serendipity - magical experiences in Ireland. These are followed by of the history of Herbalism in Western European countries and how we lost our rich traditions. I started my Herbalism Shop in the spring of 2017, so you'll find me talking a lot about the specific herbs and fungi I work with. And sometimes I just contemplate life and all of its idiosyncrasies.
Thanks for your interest. Enjoy!
