Artworks made with your heart
Totems are created by the input of a human heart. The heart rhythm is unique for every person and yet continuously changing. In this movement it reflects our state of being and the transitions in our inner landscape. A Totem is a symbolic object that marks something of great importance to you. This can be a transition to a new phase in your life, or it can symbolize your connection to a loved one. It can also be an object you want to leave behind and pass on to your kin.

Totems are symbols of change, they can help consciously transition from one phase to another.

Embracing changes within ourselves as essential parts of the natural movement and rhythms. Coming home into our unfolding life.
