Born in 1979, Arietta Bryant is now a Mother, Wife, Artist and Wiccan High Priestess.
She has been using poetry as a creative outlet since childhood (Mostly as a way to get out of writing essays at school) and as an adult, she now incorporates original poetry into many of her religious and magickal workings.
She also earns a meagre wage from her other creative projects; jewellery design, magickal sculpture, and fabric-craft.
Arietta began practicing Wicca in 1995; she has since become an active member of her local Pagan community. In 2000, she set up The Children of the Sacred Laughter, a local authority sanctioned society, which hosts seasonal open circles and workshops for people practicing or interested in Paganism. She is also co-founder of Moon River Wicca, a new Wiccan tradition that offers classes and courses both locally and internationally.
Following the success of The Children of the Sacred Laughter, Arietta trained as a celebrant and subsequently founded Tyger Moon Creations, in 2003.
Tyger Moon now serves as an umbrella company, which not only showcases all of Arietta’s creative talents but also provides a point of contact, for people who want to hire her services as a professional celebrant.
Arietta lives with her husband, two children and two cats in Hampshire where she enjoys singing, cooking, gardening and walking in the woods near her home.
Ramblings & Rhymes is Arietta’s first published anthology. It represents a cross-section of some of the many poems she has written throughout her life. Most of the poems, which have made it through her personal editing procedures for thebook, were written from the ages of eighteen and upwards, although some were written as recently as June 2011.
