Hello! I'm Heather.
Artist. Photographer. Explorer. Nature lover. Anti Coal Activist. Bone collector.

I spend my time exploring and studying the Appalachian Mountains. A vast region, often overlooked, but home to some of the most beautiful and lush forests in the world. I am in love with the wilderness, it is my home, my peace, and what keeps me sane. I make my living as an artist, selling jewelry and other creations. I live a very free lifestyle... outside the lines society has drawn for us. THIS is the society that I love and respect.

First time seeing Ebony Spleenwort in this particular area, out in the countryside, with mainly fields. It was against the porch of an old abandoned farmhouse. Makes me wonder if someone actually transplanted it there. It would be pretty neat if they did… good taste in plants! (;
