Esteban Jesus Bordallo is an accomplished poet. His selection of poetry evokes romantic philosophy and reflective ideas about everyday life and dreams. In his poems, Bordallo’s dialogue is pensive with vivid descriptions of the world through a different lens of romance, life, fantasy, and frustrations. He is an optimistic, spontaneous in nature, and a generous writer in every sense. The expansive, celebratory texture of his verse is instantly identifiable and simple to relate to.

Arwynn is a Canadian painter and graphic artist who currently resides in Toronto, Ontario. She grew up north of the city on just a couple acres of land with a rural route address.
