I am a Pagan and Witch who is also an archaeologist. I have many areas of interest including ancient Mediterranean religions, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Thelema and contemporary Paganisms, particularly Witchcraft and Pagan Reconstructionism. I am an expert on Egyptomania, as well as on tree worship in the Bronze Age Aegean, Levant, Egypt and Cyprus. I also have strong interests in the Environmental Humanities, nature, landscape, animism, ecology, ecofeminism, the Anthropocene, and posthumanism. I have a background in fine art and worked as a professional tapestry weaver at the Australian Tapestry Workshop for fourteen years, and I maintain an interest in both contemporary and archaeological textiles.
I am the author of The Cultic Life of Trees in the Prehistoric Aegean, Levant, Egypt and Cyprus (Peeters 2018), as well as many academic articles available here. I am also passionate about translating academic research on ancient religions for a popular audience. I have curated exhibitions of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities, and I regularly present lectures and workshops on ancient religion and magic.
