Illustrator. Burner. Creator of magic...

Once upon a time...
I discovered a magical place in my heart that gifted me a talent for drawing in a unique pen and ink style. After years of indulging my darker expressions in the Goth/Dark Wave scene, I was introduced to the inspiring world of the Burning Man community. I felt connected once again to my fierce pagan spirit and the abundance of a visionary world My transformation included leaving my day job doing graphics for a small print shop to pursue the healing art of massage therapy. This change gives me the freedom to follow my artistic passions. I am now dedicated to following my heart and sharing that passion and spirit.

Blessed Be ~ Kim
