The human world makes it easy to choose distraction, overwhelm, and not enoughness. We are bombarded with too many idols, opinions, realities.

So I ask you, how often do you spend time in your reality?
By which I mean, the way your heart feels when you see your favorite color, the smell of bedsheets, the warmth of hot water against your hands.
By which I mean, the way the night prickles your skin, the urge to snap and snarl at the full moon, the rush of blood through your beating heart, the primal drumbeat against your ribcage.
By which I mean the wild and recklessly in love dance around the campfire of your soul.

I hope today you are tremendously astonished by the magic that is you. By the luck and happenstance all around you. By the gift of your animal body.

Environmental Impact

About the Artist

Dionne Ong is a mixed-race Asian Canadian artist whose work provokes and challenges her viewers' connection with nature, infinity, and self-love.

She has an 'every day' practice, most notably publishing 261 unique illustrations in 2021.

"It's so easy to see the magic in Mother Nature and animals, and deem them worthy of love. And yet, we struggle to allow ourselves to be worthy of love- despite being part of nature. The purpose of my work has always been to connect you to your magic."

Shipping and Fulfillment

Since every piece is printed to order with love, it can sometimes take 5 to 10 business days before your order ships. Please keep this in mind for timing your orders. <3
