My name is Zaria Rhodolite, however I am also known as Aurelia online.
I am a 24 year old, self-taught digital artist from New Zealand. I have always been passionate about cartoons and animation but it wasn’t until 2012 when I stumbled upon a brightly colored show called “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” that I started drawing and my passion to draw all things pony began! I have been taking custom commissions for customers all over the globe since 2015 with absolutely no sign of slowing!
The majority of my art consists of ponies as I find them adorable and enjoyable to draw, however I am now slowly branching out into a wider field. I am also taking my art into a more professional direction, with my Etsy store being stocked in 2019 where I will be selling physical items (such as buttons, charms, keyrings, prints, stickers and more). I also have a TeePublic and Redbubble store where I sell larger apparel and merchandise.
I have a YouTube channel where I upload weekly videos of my drawing process, sped up to music (Speedpaints) and hold the occasional livestream where I talk to my viewers while working on art. I also have a Patreon where I upload a lot of images of my drawing process, scrapped artwork/comic ideas, outtakes from my sketchbooks, the process behind each artwork produced, early access to speedpaints, discounted commissions and top priority commissions!
Currently I work part-time in a members only club as a bartender but I also take commissions on the side as art is my passion in life and my goal for the coming years is to become a full time commission artist.
I have many pleasures in life but the things that bring me great joy are my two cats (or any cats!), my friends and family, my wonderful partner of five years, drawing, exploring and going to new places, relaxing in the sun and of course RASPBERRIES!
A Little About Aurelia..
Aurelia Charm is my ponysona, the pony personification of myself and the mascot for my art. I made her an alicorn as it makes for a wide variety of artwork ideas and I’ve always loved the idea of being able to have the power of flight and magic!
Aurelia spends a lot of time tending to her secret raspberry garden, which is where she goes for peace and quiet, to draw and to eat her favorite treats! Because of this she often smells like fresh raspberries. Not many ponies know about her secret raspberry garden, only her closest and dearest friends.
She is also quite boisterous and easily excitable. She treasures the close relationships she shares with her friends and family and at times will stretch herself too thin to try appease ponies. She loves fiercely, once you have won her heart you will always remain there.
She has a strange obsession for all things cat and raspberry.

About Zae Fervor..
Zae Fervor is a Draconequus (a dragonic/pony creature made of many other creatures) and Aurelia’s significant other, first meeting when they were only children.
Zae has always felt a little odd, like he never quite fit into the strange colorful equine world which surrounds him. At a young age his draconic mother was taken from him and so he was raised by his pony father. Capable of eating meat, he remains a strict vegetarian out of respect for his pony family
He can play the piano and the acoustic guitar, he also has a marvelous singing voice. He is tender hearted and cares a great deal about the ones he loves, he wishes to never lose anyone in his life ever again. He is a very sensitive and caring creature, despite his looks.
