Enchanting Journeys: Art, Mythology, and Nature in the Pacific Northwest

Enchanting Journeys: Art, Mythology, and Nature in the Pacific Northwest

Welcome to my corner of the internet! I'm Leslie, also known as Bright Raven, a 35-year-old artist residing in the captivating landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, while grappling with having a day job in a corporate hellscape of the Tech industry. Here, amidst towering evergreens and misty mornings, I draw inspiration from ancient tales and the enchanting magic of the natural world.

 

As an artist and fervent admirer of storytelling, I've always been captivated by the intricate tapestries of mythology, especially the ancient Norse tales of Scandinavia. These myths, with their fierce gods and intricately woven traditions , resonate deeply within me, igniting my creativity and imagination.

 

But my journey extends beyond artistry. I've also immersed myself in the realm of ethnobotany, exploring the intricate bonds between plants and humanity in the verdant landscapes of Washington State. This reverence for nature and its wisdom infuses my work, anchoring it in the rhythms of the earth and the cycles of life.

On a personal level, I'm navigating the complexities of life as a single millennial woman who has experienced both the euphoria of love and the anguish of divorce not once but twice. This journey has sculpted me, instilling resilience, fostering self-discovery, and emphasizing the significance of embracing one's inner strength while allowing oneself to dismantle and reconstruct into something new.

 

 

In this space, I invite you to join me as I navigate the relentless currents of this modern capitalist world while endeavoring to reconnect with my old soul and Pagan heart. From reflections on the fusion of art and mythology to contemplations on the trials of living authentically in a society that often prioritizes conformity over creativity, you'll encounter a myriad of topics reflecting my diverse interests and passions.

 

Whether you're a fellow enthusiast of mythology, an aspiring artist, or simply someone yearning for a deeper bond with the natural world, I hope you'll discover something here that resonates with you. Thank you for embarking on this journey with me, and may our shared adventures be as enchanting as the stories we uncover.

 

Blessings,
