Artist of the Week: Shelly Hill
Presenting our Kindred Artist of the Week series! We are big fans of all the artists we work with and we are so excited to share their stories!
This week we are featuring Shelly Hill of Wildfire & Sage! Shelly’s creations are all about self care while connecting to nature through ingredients like fireweed, calendula, and lavender. Her curated blends can be hand-picked to soothe what ails you or simply promote ongoing health. Grab your cup of tea, relax in a tub of Wildfire & Sage bath soak and get to healing!
Who are you?
Hello, I am Shelly the creator and maker of Wildfire & Sage. I live in Ketchikan, Alaska.
What do you do?
I make herbal teas.
Who/what inspires you?
I am inspired by the environment in which I live, functions of the body, and self-care -- how we can improve our lives a little bit each day with just a cup of tea.
What’s your favorite moment in the process?
I feel that I love each step of the process in its own way. If I have to choose, it would be the first brew of a new blend. The tasting, how it makes me feel, and the sharing of it.
What’s a trick of your trade, or a piece of advice for other artists in your medium?
I am not sure if it is a trick but I would say just sit with an idea, let it tumble around in your brain. No need to rush to it - it will come forth when it is ready to be released.
Big picture of what is next would be to have my own Apothecary/ Tea Shop, but for now it is continue to expand my brand and to promote self care through each cup of tea.
