hello love! 

Welcome to my little corner of the world.

I am Alana. I’m an intuitive artist, a poet, an intersectional activist, and a facilitator of creative experiences.

And I am so happy to have you here.

I’m dreaming up all sorts of beautiful ways for us to connect to one another in liberation, joy, and creativity, as I tend to the muse that lives in me. If that sort of thing speaks to you, I do hope you’ll stick around. I’d love to know you.

This website, as all creative things tend to be, is a work in progress. Just as in real life, I am practicing showing up… imperfect, incomplete, and here anyway.

As I engage in the process of building out space for us to commune ever more deeply, I thank you for your patience and your love, and I warmly invite you into relationship via the portals that currently exist: 

  • Sign up for News and the Muse.
  • Reach out via the ‘Work With Me‘ tab (it’s okay if you want to simply say hello!).
  • If you’ve taken a workshop from me, or seen my art, writing, or artist talks in person, leave a review for my testimonials page.
  • And come hang out with me on Threads or on Instagram @alanaofloveandlight … my social media happy places, and be sure to comment or send me a message so we can chat there!

with so much love,
