inspired by wild.

Why moonpine? 
When I was a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma (Grammy). We went on road trips, camping, and on hikes and nature walks often. I attribute my adventurous spirit to the time I spent with her exploring the wild. 
The "moon" portion of "moonpine" is inspired by my love of astronomy and astrology. Grammy and I were members of our local Astronomy Society. We attended weekly meetings and got to watch eclipses and other major events in the observatory through a 35.5mm Celestron telescope. In grade school, I did a project for a science fair on our solar system and won first place. I went on to the provincial science fair where I also won first place. Later, through experiences like completing a 200hr YTT I fell in love with astrology.

The "pine" portion of "moonpine" is inspired by my obsession with the forest. I am an avid hiker, as I mentioned before. I'm not like most hikers now-a-days, however. I don't hike for the 'gram or to bag peaks. I hike to walk among giants and to breath the clean air they so readily provide. I hike to listen to them creak and watch them sway in the breeze. 

I think there is a lot to learn from these giants... and I hope to translate these learnings in my creations.
