I first met ArtErmira on Instagram in September 2020. I was just starting out with poetry, and she was just starting out with artistic renders. Her ethereal, dreamy, and bright style immediately drew me in like a magnet. She was able to express everything I felt so purely. I was obsessed.
She expressed a similar obsession and appreciation for my writing. I had (and have) a vision to provide creative writing in tandem with visual art from artists I admire. ArtErmira graciously agreed to my first Instagram collaboration in October 2020. In spring 2021, she suggested an NFT collaboration and I instantly accepted. By that point I had stepped out and started sharing my astrological observations publicly.
Astrology has been a study of mine since 2014. The archetypal symbolism of the planets and their positions is embedded in my worldview. My intent with my creative writing is to inspire the reader to enter a more abstract world, not necessarily free of pain, but where tension can be addressed, released, and evolved from. The process is worth celebrating!
