I have been interpreting the Runes since 2013, when I pulled Ken Meadows' book Rune Power off the book shelf, and understood them in a way I had never been able to before. Spirit reached out to me, and I began working with the Norns, Hela, Hulda, and other Gods and Goddesses of the Norse pantheon. Thus began my spiritual journey to recover lost shamanic ways of my ancestors, and this experience has not been unique. Many people are being called at this juncture in time - the Norns rule time and choice - to learn this work. The choice is for Spiritual Awakening and Conscious Being. Would you like to learn more?

Beautiful custom portraits that reflect the soul of your animal friends are done from photographs that you or I take. While I am working on the portrait, I empathically tune into the essence of the animal to reflect its soul into the drawing or painting. People frequently respond to the finished artwork with comments such as: "Oh, my God! Oh, my God! It looks just like him!" (See portraits of Irish Setter and Saint Bernard), or "I feel like I've got my dog back." (Portrait of Wind Runner). These responses from caring, sensitive people have encouraged me to continue this work.

Pet Portrait Artist & Psychic Intuitive

What a combination! I use the intuition to get in touch with the animal whose portrait I am working on, for soulful renderings that have touched their owners deeply. Many times I have heard, "Oh my God! Oh my God! It looks just like him!" Then I know I have done my job well.

My psychic work is Rune interpretation. Runes are an ancient form of divination dating circa 50 C.E. and came down to us from the Norse, Germanic, and Scandinavian tribes. A Rune interpretation is more than a routine psychic reading, where people may go to see if the psychic can really read their minds. Instead a Rune interpretation is divination for the purpose of guiding life process based upon the belief that we all incarnated in the Earth for a purpose our soul set into play before we were born. I offer regular readings and specialized readings with the Runes. Would you like to learn more?
