Hello there! My name is Kalaéja Emaun and I am a full-time, self-taught, freelance artist/illustrator, jewelry maker, and many other things. Overall, I am a freelance Boss Babe who runs The Roaring Siren as a one woman show.
I have a deep passion for entrepreneurship, and this plays a large role in my life. As a fine artist, my main focus in my painting and drawing is creating symbols of the sacred thread that is woven between all walks of Earth life such as; plant life, animal/insect life, humanity, and the consciousness of fungi. Within my artwork I like to incorporate representations of the human psyche - creating stories that bridge the gap between fantasy and reality. I frequently draw upon my fascination of Earth with my connection to that of the feminine/female, for the woman is the creatress of all life itself through her sacred portal (womb).
As an illustrator, I thoroughly enjoy character design. Being able to put on paper (or digital screens) characters that exist inside of my head always makes me giddy with joy. I am also a huge fan of illustrating creatures, animals, and pets.
As for my jewelry work, I create with sacred metals such as Brass and Copper, combined with precious and semi precious crystals and stones, My jewelry are not only adornment, but sacred healing tools in the form of necklaces, rings, and bracelets.
I feel my role as an artist is to help humanity return to the nurturing of the Heart, and to help one heal / remember why they are here. In all that I create, I am heavily inspired by nature, and the occult. You will see a lot of dark themes to my artwork—for I am a huge fan of the darker side of things.
I am also a writer and a huge bookworm. I have been obsessed with books and writing poetry before I ever thought to become an artist. Click here to read my Book blog where I discuss all bookish things!
