Hi, I’m Laura Gyre, and I obsess about the intersections between rational thought and the non-rational – creativity, embodied experience and those extra-weird moments that are even harder to pin down.
We lose something important when we insist that everything make sense, and becoming more adventurous and fluid can make us more successful, more intuitive and even smarter in the end.
I do a lot of exploration through drawing and other visual work, on mythical and natural themes. You can see my portfolio here, check out the shop, or contact me to work on commissions (I especially like to design tattoos, but I can help with anything from illustration to web design).
I also write a lot about magical theory and practice, particularly the system of elemental balance that’s common to witchcraft and alchemy. This living tradition holds a surprising number of keys to the sort of integrated experience that a lot of us are looking for, mirroring modern research about flow states, mind-body phenomena and, well, weirder stuff that science hasn’t quite caught up with.
