Well hi there, and thank you for stopping by my about page!

I’m Lena, a passionate and ambitious dreamer. In the day I teach art to tiny humans and spend my evenings studying to become an Integrative Holistic Health and Wellness Coach and Marriage and Family Therapist. I also have an Etsy shop where I sell custom watercolor paintings and homemade apothecary goods.

I grew up in West Michigan, and after moving about and spending a little time here and there I am now settled back in West Michigan, in a happy little Lake Michigan coastal town with my fiancé, Will, and our two adorable cats, Amelia and Vincent!

As a part of our passion for minimalism we’ve spent the last year working to transition into a more sustainable lifestyle at home. We’re a work in progress, but we want to do everything we can to help preserve this beautiful world we live in. We’re also enjoying the adventure of owning our first home, so we spend a lot of time in the yard and working on home improvement.

I love to make my own beauty and skin care products, painting, gardening, photography, and writing. I am excited to use this space to share all of those passions. I also enjoy writing about my meditation and mindfulness practice, sustainable habits, and healthy food and drink. Writing allows me to draw more enjoyment out of life and I’m thankful for this lovely outlet.

Feel free to send me an email so I can get to know you too! I hope to hear from you!

love & light,
