This holiday season, ARTINFO Canada asked me to be a part of the art critics edition of their holiday guide. What assists me in my writing practice? Here’s what I told them:

ALICIA ELER’S PICKS: “In my writing practice, I always work best when I am creatively and spiritually sound. To help me achieve this state, I desire astrological essential oils from the Three Fates Mystic Shop for my sun, moon, and rising signs of Aquarius, Cancer and Virgo, and corresponding elemental sprays for air, water, and earth.”
