Lavender Fields

Happy Sunday! I hope you are doing so very well, taking good care of yourself, and being oh so gentle ❤

This week, I spent a few hours painting this landscape. I put on some lovely, soft French music, sat at my desk in front of the window, and had some help from the kittens (mostly Yen) painting this dreamy Provence scene. 
It was such a lovely way to escape for a few days as I worked on it, then edited the video. Europe is somewhere I’d love to spend a year or two living in and travelling in the future, especially France. Perhaps it’s my French roots? Who knows, but it has always called to me since I was a child.

It’s always interesting to me when I paint, because I see the difference between painting and creating music and how I react to them internally. Painting for me is quite relaxing, and I don’t feel a huge amount of pressure for perfection. I just want the colours to be lovely, and the composition to be whimsical. With music, whilst I do really enjoy creating it, is much more involved, and my nasty perfectionism really rears its head. It’s a much more heavy, and laboured process than painting is, yet for the most part, I’m ok with that. 
Music is my love, and I’m happy to dig deeper, sweat more for it, bleed more for it. 

I also am grateful for painting to teach me not to worry too much about any of my artistic endeavours, the joy of it is the thing. Bringing that mentality into music-making has been very helpful, and reduced a lot of stress. But again, I am totally ok with it being a heavier process. 

Luna et Stellae

Tonight is the release of my Luna et Stellae box!

It’s a collection that has been inspired by the moon and stars (as the title suggests 😉 ) , which have always been such a great source of wonder and almost a touchstone in my life. It’s something I always return to, gazing up into the depths of the night sky.

In the box, is a tin of Luna et Stellae tea. It’s a blend of green and oolong teas, with hibiscus, jasmine, and cornflower. The flavour notes are a heady swirl of jasmine, strawberry, and caramel. Each tin contains enough tea for 60 servings, and this tea won’t appear again in the shop unless I release another limited run.

Then is the stunning stars and moons windchime made of white onyx. I absolutely adore the one I have hanging up in my window, the tinkling would truly make for a wonderful soundtrack to looking up at the stars.

For each box, I painted a unique moon and stars piece. A silver moon that contains a nebula, golden stars surround it upon a textured, deep blue background.

And finally is my current favourite tea infuser. It’s a mesh basket that can hold a serious amount of tea. I wouldn’t be surprised if it worked quite well in most teapots.


I’m so excited to be putting something new together in the shop, and I’m already planning the next box. I just love the ability to dream up a vision/feeling of something, and have it come to life with curated items. It’s magick, truly! And it’s even more magickal that I can share that with others as well!
