About The Artist
Arapaima Illustrations is a visual artist whose art focuses on the strange and mystical. She loves nature, the ocean, and all things strange. Once a painter of semi-abstract nudes, her work now focuses on imagining alien life.
About Sam Messersmith
Sam Messersmith is a certified nature and forest therapy guide, writer, poet, and (apparently) still trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up.
She loves cats, her husband, and the ancient hills of West Virginia that she and her family call home.
You can find her musings on substack.
