1. Tell us about your work
My shop is centered around magical and mystical arts. I do tarot readings and divination as well as provide various spiritual and magical tools for practitioners and the curious.

2. Is there a story behind the name of your business?
It's kind of a long, convoluted story. Let's just say it starts with a mischievous spirit and ends in the woods.

3. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer? 
Mostly I developed my skills through routine practice over the last twenty years. The products I sell are all things I've used for myself over the years.

4. Where do you draw your inspiration? 
I draw inspiration from everything but stories and fairy tales in particular. I love a good story and I like to create stories with my products - or help my clients write their own stories.

5. What’s your favorite item to create? 
Probably spell bottles or magical cords. They're magical and spiritual items that can pass as everyday jewelry so they can be really fun.

6. What’s your best seller? 
Tarot readings about love, hands down. People always want to know about their love life!

7. How long have you been in Rhode Island? 
I was born and raised here, mostly along the bay.

8. What do you {heart} about Rhode Island? 
The weather. That's pretty weird to say considering it changes every five minutes but it's what I miss the most when I'm away.

9. Favorite place to take out-of-towners? 
Crescent Carousel in East Providence or Newport. I grew up in Riverside so the Carousel has a lot of memories for me and out-of-towners are always wicked impressed by it and Newport is a sure bet.

10. Any advice for new/wannabe makers? 
Don't give up! Following one's passion is definitely a labor of love but it's so worthwhile when it pays off.
