Kate says: "I love what I create because I’m passionate and respectful to Norse mythology and the powerful emotions that a beautiful tree or landscape can conjour. It resonates deeply with me and hope it does too you. The best part of having this website is that I get to connect with people that share with me their experiences with nature, their interactions with ancient entities and their own personal believes."

The 9 Worlds
A quick intro - Norse cosmology divided the universe into nine realms. These nine worlds in ancient Norse Mythology are held in the branches and roots of the world tree Yggdrasil.
The clearest present day description we have of the nine realms are:
Realm of the Vanir. The second main tribe of deities, associated with magic, light, fertility.
Realm of the Aesir. One of the two main tribes of deities venerated by the pre-Christian Norse. Depicted as a beautiful city of celestial towers.
Realm of the Elves. Located not far from Asgard,home to the Light Elves associated with the arts and music.
Realm of Hel. Where many of the dead dwell.
Realm of the Giants and Frost Giants. A primordial place of chaos, magic and untamed wilderness.
Realm of the Humans. The Gods created Midgard to protect the humans who were easy prey.
Realm of Fire. Home of the fire-giant Surtr and his forces of chaos.
Realm of the Dwarves. Located deep underground. Associated with craftmanship and magic.
Realm of Ice, snow and mist. Thought to be the oldest of the nine realms.
