Esoterica creates art and jewelry to help you build a personal collection that you’ll love.
Melissa is a designer in tech. Driven by recent political events, she has taken to art to express the loss and chaos impacting the community around her. Art offers a lens – visual and visceral – that helps to capture key moments reflecting, as well as disrupting, the milieu of information saturation and on-demand news. Furthermore, art acts as a counternarrative – an attempt to engage with voices and/or stories that would otherwise be lost.
She is inspired by the natural world: forests, ocean waves, butterfly migrations, and rose petals. In a world increasingly obsessed with efficiency, there are lessons to be found by living with loss – the discursive nature of life/death.
