You are walking...

...through a coastal forest that smells of both the sea and mountain air when you see a sparkle that catches your eye. Looking closer, you find a lone moonflower. Peculiar, it's daytime and yet it blooms. Even stranger, there is a sound of wind that calls to you while the forest around you is still. As you move through the brush, you stumble and fall through a hole...no, a tree hollow?

Confused but unharmed, you get up and notice sunlight just a short way ahead. You climb out of the tree to find an extraordinary garden and little creatures running about. Welcome to Muneflower Hollow!

Spice the Magical Frog

Upon entering Muneflower Hollow, a little green frog puts on her salmon-colored witch hat and says, "Welcome, traveler!" After greetings and introductions, you find that her name is Spice and she is the caretaker of this land and its inhabitants, including her Froglings. Everywhere she leaps, the ground seems to glow and tiny sprouts appear. She is certainly no ordinary frog.

------------------------------

Although I've been drawing magical frogs for a long time, the first time I posted one to social media was November 15th, 2020! So, this is Spice's birthday. :) Her design has changed a bit over the years but she has always been a fire mage determined to learn other types of magic and help protect the forest she calls home.

Fun fact: Spice's coloring is based upon the Squirrel Tree Frog, my favorite type of frog. The Squirrel Tree Frog which is a tree frog very common in Florida, where I grew up! There was a retention pond behind my childhood home, and I remember finding these frogs climbing our patio screen and hearing their songs many a night.

what is a "Frogling"?

Frogling is a term used in the magical world of Muneflower Hollow to combine the words frog + seedling. Spice's magic sometimes goes a little funny and a little froggy may be born as part of her gardening, cooking, or other activities. Sometimes, froglings appear in my art as tiny frogs or they take on parts of plants or objects. Either way, they all are important and loved residents of Muneflower Hollow. You can learn about them below!

By the way, there is a real term "froglet" that sometimes may be called a "frogling," which refers to the change from tadpole to frog when the young frog loses their gills and tail to gain legs and stronger lungs. Unlike real-life frogs, most of my Froglings don't have a tadpole stage.

(Old man) Chowder

Old Man Chowder is a sleepy guy who loves to sit by the pond and blow his (bubble) pipe. He is very chill and go with the flow unless talking about conservation and protection of natural world - he is very passionate about these topics. He is not a Frogling and is in fact an elder to Spice.

He was originally inspired by a potential trip to Yellowstone but Western Toads are also along the west coast as well! Western Toads are, overall, on the near threatened conservatory list, meaning their populations are decreasing. They are a protected species in several states because of this.

Spice's Apothecary

Welcome! Spice the Frog has traveled around the world learning about plants. She was so inspired she even asked them to come back to Muneflower Hollow to live in her magical garden, where they can teach the other residents about their unique and amazing properties! Thus, Spice's Apothecary was born.

This botanical-themed collection is a love letter to the amazing world of herbs and plants. For millennia and across cultures, plants have not only been an important staple in cooking to sustain life but also used to help treat wounds or illness and improve overall health. I created this collection with the aim of sharing knowledge about some of the coolest little plants through pins and illustration.
