Oh hey there. My name is Eris Elizabeth and I am an artist and witch who weaves in Western Australia.
Creativity is in my bones and my blood. As an artist, I seek to tap into the realms of the subconscious, the Other, that which is on the edge of our perception. I like to paint with a variety of mediums, and I also explore using 3D and 4D media. My art practice is woven into my spirituality, and this is also manifesting in my tarot project, the Volta Tarot, which you can take a look at here.
I am a witch in the modern sense of the word; I adopt an animistic view of the universe and at times have described my theology as panentheist, transdeist, eclectic and progressive. I have always been fascinated with religion, history and culture and being pagan is an excellent way to explore where my heart pulls. There is no turning back from that moment you dedicate yourself as a witch.
My craft is ecstatic and experiential. I play with herbs and I burn things and hug trees; I talk to animals and sip weird teas. I subscribe to the assertion that the personal is political is spiritual. I love to write about my experiences and once wrote as The Chaos Witch in a previous blogging lifetime. I seek to be authentic, gritty and brave this time around. I am constantly reflecting and critiquing my own practice as it evolves.
I’m also a feminist vegan Griffindor INTJ Aries-Sun-Virgo-Rising, I play roller derby and I am a devotee of Hekate. 🙂 I try not to take myself too seriously! It’s hard when you’re writing these bio things.
Is your art work for sale?
Many of my past works are already sold. At the moment I don’t sell prints, but it is something I am thinking about for when time and inclination allows.
At this time I do not accept commissions, simply because I work full time and have a very busy schedule.
Hey, what happened to The Chaos Witch?
I moved away from the label of ‘Chaos Witch’ and took a year off from having a public portfolio or writing platform, to do some shadow work and belly-button gazing. It was very refreshing! I plan to republish some of my better writings from the archives of my old blog. I am still interested in chaos magic, so I am still a chaos witch, but I am so many other things as well. I don’t want to be ‘THE’ anything.
Why Eris Elizabeth?
I have chosen to adopt an amalgamation of a name I am known by many (Eris, which is part of my roller derby name and a big part of my identity), as well as my middle legal name for my witchy and arty pursuits online.
Are you on teh social medias?
Of course I am…
