About Us

"We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds, read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out and combed out. We get placed on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for Gods' sake. Do you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth. Because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they'd allowed to wither in themselves." -R. Bond

The Rusty Orchid was created in 2020 by two self taught artists from South Florida, Yudi Coffey & Meghan Carl. We are just two first time mommas and an inseperable sister in law duo trying to change the world one art piece at a time! (:
