Seasonal Living

Just like the seasons, we also experience cycles throughout our life, such as the lunar phases. Living in union with these natural cycles unlocks the innate powers of nature and allows you to be empowered, interconnected and in flow.

Lunar Cycle (2022)

Cycles are embedded into my everyday practices and the lunar phase is a fundamental cycle that I return to again and again. Whether it's to support my menstrual journey or plan sowing in my allotment, the moon is a constant guide. This artwork was born of a desire to return to the fundamental patterns and cycles we see throughout the year, which return us to seasonal ways of living. This work also echos my 'Herbal Moon Cycle Guide' without the explicit connection to the menstrual/ovulation cycle, providing better accessibility for anyone who is interested to invite lunar cycles into their life.

Nutritional Menstrual Cycle Map (2020)

This project was the start of my journey to understand the seasonal shifts of my menstrual/ovulation cycle. The work was informed by nutritional guidance in the books such as 'Womancode' and 'In the Flo' by Alissa Vitti, a nutritional and women's hormone expert. Alisa explains that certain foods at key stages of our cycle can help us better navigate the seasonal changes and reduce, or even eliminate, menstrual symptoms such as irregular bleeds, PSM and painful cramps, which so many of us experience and accept as normal. This work is a visual representation of these recommendations, that could encourage meal planning around one's cycle. My wish is that it can be of service and use to people who menstruate and those who want to connect with cyclic living.

Herbal Moon Cycle Guide (2020)

This project was developed in collaboration with Maria from Healing Weeds, who champions empowering people with herbal wisdom from locally foraged plants. We are passionate about supporting people who menstruate to connect with their cycles and support menstrual needs with natural, plant-based remedies. The flowers, herbs and plants illustrated can help alleviate the most common menstrual symptoms and bring you in closer communion with your cycle, local environment and the earth. These plants are accompanied by the moon phases, which also represent the menstrual/ovulation cycle from new moon (menstruation) to full moon (ovulation).

Wheel of the World (2021)

At the heart of seasonal living is inviting ritual into the everyday and marking seasonal shifts throughout the year with reflection and intention setting. This artwork was painted for a dear friend who has long inspired this journey within my life and it's been a joy to see it resonate with others too. The artwork illustrates annual festivals celebrated in Celtic, Pagan and Wiccan traditions, with symbolic imagery to help support celebrations and connection with the earth. The wheel encircles the triple goddess symbol with rings symbolising the four seasons rippling out from the centre.
