Sara “Olwen” Ives is a polytheist witch and a member of the druidic organizations of ADF and AODA. Drawing from a blend of traditional and folkloric magic, she seeks to bring enchantment into everyday life A self-described awenydd, her creative and vocational work involves mediating the unseen form through art, and she has a deep passion for both the magical and the mystical. By day she works as an artist and teacher, and by night can be found rocking in trance, riding over the hedge. Originally from Los Angeles, she now lives in the Pacific Northwest, in the Puget Sound region with her husband, as well as a dog and cat. She considers herself a proud denizen of the Cascadian bioregion.
