As an occult artist and writer, Shay’s work features in books and online magazines including Askei Kataskei, Hekate: Her Sacred Fires (Avalonia), Bearing Torches (Bibliotheca Alexandrina) and Emily Carding’s Faery Craft (Llewellyn).
He is a painter and a poet, working in mediums of ink and acrylic, creating original artwork and passages heavily inspired by Old World European magic and the wonders of Classical Antiquity. He is an animist, panentheist, ecstatic, esoteric, Mystic and initiated Witch who has a love for psychology, mythology, wild places and otherworldly beauty.
A pagan Priest and Torch-Bearer to the Covenant of Hekate, Shay’s own little book of madness ‘Lunatik Witchcraft’ was a vision inspired by the mysteries of Hecate celebrating the madness of the moon, the undying Underworld and the primal, ecstatic soul.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Shay was brought up with the traditions and folklore of Macedonia which introduced him early to a world of magic and ritual reverence, circle dances, divination with dreams and secrets caught in coffee cups. His temple is the night sky, his High Priestess the moon and his prayers are soaked with consecrated wine.
