I’m an artist with synesthesia, a harmless bit of neurological cross-wiring that causes me to see letters, numbers, emotions, and even people’s personalities in specific and meaningful colors.

I’ve been having some challenges with my health lately, so I haven’t been able to post much here in quite a while.

But I felt a strong urge to start doing something creative again, so I recently decided to try making some lockets and pendants using polymer clay, mainly as a form of art therapy.

These pieces are really designed to be little wearable portals to the imagination, and they’re meant to express my fascination with the mystical, magical, and sometimes darker sides of life.

I would love to share my work with a wider audience, so if you see something that grabs you, please feel free to “like,” share, or purchase a piece from my Etsy shop. I’m always happy to see them go to good homes!

I will post items in my Etsy shop whenever I finish something new, and you can find a gallery of my previous designs on my Facebook page by clicking here.

Thanks so much for looking and liking, and I hope you enjoy my new endeavor.

Welcome back to my unique little Universe!

P.S. if you would like to ask a question, please feel free to contact me here.

  5. My husband replayed for me a most fascinating segment of NPR last year. The piano player saw and felt the color of each note. Wow, there’s a name for this!

    Just discovered your site…found it wonderfully interesting!! Never heard of the cross wiring you see…are those colors imaginative? Eager to know more!!

    • Thank you, it’s so great to see you here!

      I’m not quite sure what you mean by imaginative. I see the colors inside my head, but I kind of mentally “project” them onto letters and numbers that I see in print, too. The effect is a little bit like looking at a tinted photograph – I see the original, with my colors kind of faintly layered over it.

      The same thing is true of people, too, although I tend to look away from them if I’m reading chakras in person. It’s less distracting, in case they’re wearing colors different from what I’m seeing, or something like that.

      Hope that helps! Feel free to ask more! 🙂

Please leave a comment! I want to see what color it is! :)
