Meet Founder & Creative

Hi, I'm Mary...a quiet renegade, knowledge & skill collector, pragmatic mystic and general weirdo with a punk rock spirit.  I work as a legal professional by day, and by night, follow my whims and passions as an alchemist, creative, and wildling.  I've been on a decades-long journey to overcome the struggles of chronic illness and lead a full and vibrant life.  I've spent more time in a place of hopelessness, pain and disempowerment than I care to admit and that any human should endure.  I know I am far from alone in this experience.  

I started Nexus in late 2020 with the intention to create a service-based business aimed at empowering others with the plant medicines, energy work, mindset management and movement practices that aided my own growth and healing.  As I continued to follow my natural inclinations and curiosities, I found myself evolving more into an artist and maker - the role I was always meant for but somehow didn't realize!  So, here we are, three years later.  Nexus has now transformed into a creative space where I get to play with plants and create pretty things, which I then take to markets and meet lots of really lovely people.   Connecting with folks in this way, over a shared love of art and nature, has filled a little pocket of emptiness in my soul and brought me oodles of joy.  Thank you for being here with me!                                                                    ☺
