I plan on including this card with my husband's gift for our anniversary next month. I love how much more personal it feels than other cards out there.

Love this pendant! It adds a nice splash of color and goes with most anything. Nice weight to the piece, and I love that there's a story behind each one's former life as a stamp!

About

From doodles to art and the stars

All my life, I’ve felt like I was on the threshold. As a foreigner, I was always on the border, neither here, nor there, and yet everywhere. But because of that, I’ve developed an independent view of the world in front of me, often seeing what is unacknowledged or missed.

I first came to the United States from Brazil when I was 10 years old. Since then, I’ve always felt between two worlds, two cultures, two languages. Nevertheless, I soon found out… living on the threshold has its advantages.

As a child, I asked everyone I met, “What’ your astrological sign?” It’s mesmerizing how the astrological symbology, which at first seems like a foreign language, can say so much about a person. As I progressed in my knowledge of astrology, I was drawn to explore psychology as it deepened my understanding of the human soul. This led to a M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Creating Astro Charts was a way for me to embody the beauty and language of astrology in a physical and tangible way. My drawings became an artistic translation for the symbolic language of astrology, which can be mysterious… just like being a foreigner.

In my work, I’m committed to helping others connect with what motivates them and to cross their own thresholds in life. I’ve found that the combination of art, psychology, and astrological translation delivers unprecedented insight…and also a visual delight.

What motivates me? My motto in life: that we are all midwives to each other’s dreams.

    As an artist, I create Astro Charts as a way for me to embody the beauty and language of astrology in a tangible form. As an astrologer, I work with individuals who want a better understanding of who they are and what they came here to do.

Philosophically, I see my drawings as my way to infuse color within boundaries. When working within those boundaries I’m envisioning that I’m building a bridge between concrete reality and creativity, attempting to transform the line boundaries into a fertile ground for color and passion. When asked what style my artwork is, I just respond "It’s a Nessa".
