When I’m assembling a collage painting, I like to create a story with the images. Each piece is an important part of the narrative. For Secret Operatives, I imagined two secret agents from different countries meeting and falling in love. Their love was so strong that it spanned multiple assignments and several continents.

Last year I spent a few months in the desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was surreal to witness the beauty and wonder of that land. Every night I drank in the sight of never-ending constellations. Morning and night the the sun rose and descended in majesty, wearing the prismatic robes of cloud formations. During this time I continued working with my Heroic Tarot clients, but by phone instead of in person. This separation forced me to focus and hone my energies in more direct ways. It made me a stronger reader. When I returned to San Francisco, I found myself drawn to watercolor, due in part to the desert palette of New Mexico. I worked furiously to bring visions of strange creatures to life on paper. The first of these beings I dubbed “The Progenitor.” This work (seen below) lived up to his name, spawning ten more images. It was only after some time had passed that I started to see these beings as manifestations of planetary influences. Mars (the image above) was the second image, then Venus, then Uranus. I realized that I was channeling galactic ambassadors.
The Alien Progeny Series is a collection of ink and watercolor portraits investigating planetary energies from the perspective of the supernatural. Each creation provides a medical intuitive map of their intergalactic composition. Each is for sale (except for The Progenitor which is already in a private collection) in the stormantic Magick Shop (simply scroll down to see them all).
