Erika Fortner Queen Meb the house of twigs tarot reader Portland Oregon witch witchcraft school

Erika Fortner, Tarot Reader, Fabricator, Curator, Mom, 

Head Mistress of THoT, and THoT: the School of Ritual, Owner of Keven Craft Rituals, and q. Meb ~ Queen Meb the Portland witch shop with handmade skincare products, organic goods, tarot, metaphysical items, home & hearth decor.
She is an Artist with a BFA from Pratt Institute and has an extensive fine Art background in NYC with one of the top Artists in the world working with museums such as the MOMA and Guggenheim as well as living in Berlin, Germany and Venice, Italy. She has worked with magickal and folklore herbalism most of her life, learning local herbs and lore as she travels.
A practicing eclectic-solitary witch, she works with energy healing / reiki master, psychopomp and psychic work, witch attunements; specializing in tarot and channeling since 1995. Erika rides the cusp of the Alpha / Omega and favors the Morrighan, Isis, Hecate, Freya, and Cernunnos. She works closely with Santa Muerte, Baphomet, and Lillith among others.

Her inspiration of ritual comes from many areas, including her family lineage which to the first high kings of Ireland, the father of Queen Maeb, the King of the the Picts, and also connections with the Welsh Lewellyn family, the Scottish McLaughlins, De Forsythe and McCloud clans. She has found roots tying to the Powhatan and Lenape, and Cherokee tribes, as well as Norway and Sweden. Learning about my ancestry I have also found Jewish, German, French, Italian, Spanish and a hint of West African. This eclectic, never ending discovery of self and connection is always bringing new energies and workings into her store and practice. She worked for the Psychic Friends Network while in Brooklyn New York before deciding the ethos of the company wasn't what she was interested in.

Tad Ericson
Co-owner, Artis, Creative Media Specialist, Drummer, Skateboarder, Father
Tad has had an interesting path. He suffered from asthma his entire life and had many transformations during his time, including the two times that he died and managed to come back. He is a Scorpio sun, Scorpio rising, and a Cancer Moon making him an intense but half-in/ half out highly prophetic contributor with many insights into the other realms. His professional life is distinguished in the music, video, and VFX industry and even managed to work with Vevo as their editor for a decent amount of time. He did work on the TV show Borgia, a Kanye West music video, and worked with Seabring Studios. He has helped focus larger brands with the creative media solutions and even created one of the Grammy introduction and 2-D media titles. 

As a witchy practitioner, he is eclectic but also connects deeply with his Scottish, Danish, and Norwegian roots as well and his connection with the Saponi, Choctaw, and Métis First Nations. He works with Odin, Cernnunos, and Kali as well as many transformative gods and goddesses. Of course it goes to say BLM matter and no racism or hatred towards LGBTQI members of any kind is tolerated in our space.
