Process-oriented, motivated by Empathy and lateral problem-solving: Dyslexia at its best
My main goal in life is to harness the radical insight of my twelve-year-old self.
Through my art Facillitation project "Journal Stew" I aim to empower fellow Earthlings to be fiercely curious, and to remind us that everything carries deep wisdom of its own sort - our self included.
Through Fern Hill Comix, I seek to amplify the obvious and illuminate my chosen axioms, through animal characters that defy social expectations. These are The Uncanny Familiars of Fern Hill.
Hear more about Fern Hill in the first episode of our podcast!

The link above goes to Ko-fi, a unique platform for creators to get tips / "donations." ko-fi, like coffee, as in "buy me a coffee on ko-fi!"
They don't take a percent of the contribution, as they offer a gold membership for creators who want to pay a little to customize their account.
I especially like that with Ko-fi, you can pay via paypal without having to make a whole new account just do donate $3- out of love.
