About Me


Inancing my inner Gypsy Mermaid Spirit


"With my feet in the air and my head on the ground"... I am a Gypsy Mermaid Spirit Guide. Building my anti artistic revolution every moment...For the past 2 months I have been sleeping in abandoned boats and tree houses and other strange places. I am now on route to California and have been couchsurfing the whole way. We have a lovely Pod on the top of our car, allowing us to catch some rideshares.

I am in search of people and places that influence my plans to build a hot air balloon and travel back from the West via underwater circus in the sky. Looking to create elaborate and ridiculous performances for land dwellers from West to East..... or wherever my cowgirl boots may take me.


Take every opportunity that comes you way and let the world bring you exactly where you need to be.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saved a squirrel from drowning once....CPR and the whole bit. I loved that squirrel.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everything I would love to teach I haven't learned yet...but I can definitely share my artistic skills. Anything from Photography to Encaustics, Painting, Gluing things together, etc. I am also a mean thrifter. You want to garage sale? I'll show you how it's done. I have a unique taste in movies, music, books and places and I love when I can introduce new things.

I want to learn as much as I can in this name a few...building a hot air balloon and flying it to a nearby couch, rollerdisco, anything sea related, being a cowgirl, videography...and so much more.
