Lunar Drawings

03_The discernment and self trust of the owl (2022 Lunar Calendar)_watercoloronpaper_11x15

Since 2019, I have been maintaining a personal lunar practice, a meditative process in which I chart my daily experiences in relationship to the moon's phases. The practice is malleable and can include any number of considered and ritualized actions, such as intention-setting, walking, baking, art-making, bathing, and spell-work. 

As part of this process, I create sketches for each lunar phase with chosen actions and reflections, as well as a drawing for each year. The annual drawings take inspiration from my natural environment and feature an animal  whose behavior and energy I would like to use as a guide in my year ahead. This practice has been an integral part of my personal healing and feeds directly into my larger art practice.
