Hello beautiful soul.

Welcome. I’m Karmen and here's a little bit about me.

Artist. Writer. Shamanic Practitioner. Numinous Creatrix. Veilwalker. Potion Weaver.

Through my personal journey with chronic illness, I was introduced to modern shamanic healing practices in 2001. This path has been transformative, helping me to navigate the challenges of illness and embrace the lessons it has taught me. My experiences have fueled my passion for assisting others on their own healing journeys.


I am also an ordained minister with Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards, as well as a Priestess of the Sacred Grove through the Red Moon Mystery School.

One of my specialties is creating handcrafted vibrational essences, which include flower essences made from flowers in my own garden and forest wanderings. Many of these products were created for my own healing journey and for my family as well. These vibrational essences are now available for purchase through my apothecary. Vibrational essences can also be a useful addition to further your healing journey by offering another layer of support in between sessions with me.


Being a professional artist and photographer, I  have been featured in galleries in the Inland Northwest area. I view the world not only through an artist's eyes but also through a shamanic perspective, rich in animism and symbolism. This tends to reveal more profound insights into my creative process and often results in stories that thread my images together. Much of my photography is noticing what we often overlook as we rush through our busy lives. I also paint and make jewelry and traditional collage as well as digital collage. Using collage techniques, I teach people how to make their own oracle cards.


I offer online group workshops and private mentorships, and I am available for private sessions through Zoom video confrencing.


My hope is that you remember the beautiful soul that you are, that you connect with the wisdom of your heart, and step into who you came here to be. The world needs your gifts. With gratitude from my heart to yours, I thank you for being here.
