The Green Wolf


Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional liberal political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

Artist, author, ecopagan, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.

Creator of Curious Gallery, a two-day arts festival celebrating the wunderkammer revival in Portland, OR on February 1-2, 2014. Details at http://www.curiousgallerypdx.com.

I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.

I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My next book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden", due out from Llewellyn in May 2014.

A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

Ask me anything
I renewed my membership with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Bugs may not be as flashy or charismatic as wolves and elk, but they’re absolutely crucial to the health of a complex ecosystem. If you’re looking for a worthy nonprofit to donate to, you could do much, much worse than Xerces. Plus their twice-yearly newsletter is something I love looking forward to!
