Hi, I’m Maria Blonde

In 2014, I began publishing personal essays exploring my journey through divorce, mental illness, and an undiagnosed learning disability. That experience showed me style without life is just imitation.
3.3 million followers later, Artemiz has become a resource for others to feel less alone in the ups and downs of their journey through life. It’s a place where readers can find suggestions on where to travel, eat, or shop from someone they’ve come to know as a friend.
Thank you for being here. For being open to enjoying life’s simple pleasures and looking inward to understand yourself, your neighbors, and your fellow humans! I’m looking forward to chatting with you.
