Ari's Diary

My name is Arijah Ankh Khalid-Zyn. It is a name I chose for myself quite some time ago to reflect and empower my personal majikal and artistic endeavors.
I'm also known as "Mama Ravyn" and The Blood Witch...the one and only. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1971 and my maiden name is Greenfield. I come from a long line of loving bay folk, naturopaths, artists and craftsmen.
I currently reside in what I refer to as "the enchanted forest" on a plateau in Middle Tennessee; a place lovingly named "Wintermoon".
I'm a self taught freelance graphic artist with a focus on esoteric art, both digital and organic.
I'm an atheistic spiritualist of mixed European, Asian and Scandanavian lineage. I have been a family geneologist since I was 12 years old; a promise made and a gift given to me by my Grandmother.

My interests are many and varied, but all along the same vein of Gothic literature, art and esotericism.
I've been an artist my entire life. My work has been featured in various publications, from magazines and books to movies and album art.
I work in multi-media, using various tools and canvases, from simple logo and production designs to wall murals and folk paintings. I am also proficient in virtual world designs and business.
My personal art frequently reflects darker subject matter, but comfortable with various paradigms.
I have a strong professional work ethic, and my art and experience is ever evolving.
I won't waste my time or yours; so with that being said, I feel it necessary to tell you exactly who I am and what I'm about just in case you find my personal aesthetic an issue for you.

I'm an eclectic and a bit eccentric non-neuro-typical. A happy corpse bride with a dead cat, weird plants, and a few Gothlings.
I also do taxidermy art, collect old medical thingies and stuff dead things into jars.
I like to have fun, I refuse to grow old, and refuse to die.
I'm a Poe devotee, and a Gaiman/Burton/King/Shelley/Lovecraft/Romero/Waters hybrid weirdo with a touch of Troma and Raimi.
I'm a combat boot and broomstick skirt wearing, black hat donning, Horrorpunk heart with a black metal soul.
On Fridays I'm in love, and it's always time for tea.
I've got my feet in the air and my head on the ground, and work inside out and frequently backwards...and if you caught all of those hidden references, we're friends already.
I love classic and cult film, picnics in cemeteries, weird tea parties and wild pirate tavern raids.
I like puzzles and riddles, and mystery and magic.
I am interested in and do a lot of stuff.
I'm a Skyrim addict and play a Khajiit, so if "You have coin, I have wares."

I'm good at what I do and am always learning something new. I like to teach and am ever a scholar.
I appreciate constructive criticism and am open to respectful suggestions.
I'm a bit ODD, but house-trained and play well with others.
I despise prejudice. I'm not rude, but I say what I mean.
I don't lie, steal, beat around the bush or pull punches and I respect others who do the same.
If you want treats with no tricks...I'm your girl.

Professional References
"Arijah designed the amazing cover for my book 'Diary of the Antichrist.' Her gothic art for the cover gives an appropriate symbolic impression of the soul and nature of the book.
It is my favorite work of art, a unique combination of The Devil and The Hierophant of Tarot, and a powerful portrayal of the effects of such a magical union." –David Cherubim (Musician, Author and Occultist)

"Arijah Ankh Khalid Zyn is hands down my favorite artist. I have gone to her countless times, for work and NEVER have I been let down. She can take a rendered image or photograph and turn it into an amazing work of art.
All her work is deep and mesmerizing. I honestly wish I had just half of the skills she possesses. Her promotionals for my products have been well captured and in my opinion, the driving force in my sales. She is a wizard in decoration
of virtual reality worlds, while most people are bogging down the program with 3d mesh models with outlandish resource usage, she can create better effects with 2d resources from scratch, that didn't bog down program resources.
She is very easy to get along with, and will offer suggestions along the way, but will deliver what you ask for. I will always go to her first, before I consider using any other art designer." -Mizdimma DeSade (Artist, Author, Musician and Occultist)

"Renaissance woman and mystical diva, Arijah Ankh Khalid-Zyn, has held a career as a talented esoteric artist for quite some time. Remarkably, Arijah was able to gain a lot of business through raw skills, networking, and some good old-fashioned word of mouth.
I’ve worked with Arijah on a few projects and find her sense of professionalism, along with the personal interest she takes in every project, very impressive. Arijah has spent her entire life on mastering the art she produces. Due to her broad life experience,
Arijah is able to find common ground in interpreting the reality you would like to see projected for her customer base." -Warlock Asylum (Musician, Author and Occultist)

Art
Over the past 15 years, I have created over 1000 pieces of art and have created a stock catalogue of my own creations containing over 40,000 independant items.
For sake of time and space, I have created a video of some of my work. It's large, so please be patient.
