Orlee Stewart is an occult artist in New Orleans. She was raised in Toronto, Canada in a religious Jewish household and rebelled to become a witch, priestess, exorcist, and consecrated Apostolic and Gnostic Bishop. Orlee is a member of the surrealist Society for Art of Imagination and creates painted spirit portals. Her occult paintings have been exhibited at galleries and events across the world as all her works are enchanted through the powers of magick, carrying gnosis like an event horizon of creativity from the spirit realms. Orlee initially began sharing her occult knowledge as a teacher in secret societies, conducting classes on demonic evocation. She is an Adept of the Esoteric Order of Dagon, Oracle of the Old Ones as well as the Bishop for the Ecclesia Catholica Chaotica Lodge in New Orleans.
Orlee’s paintings and illustrations serve as icons to the forces of spiritual energy that exist beyond our world of forms. The purpose of her visionary art is to create an experience for the viewer that will lead to a subjective spiritual awakening. She has had her work published in many grimoires and occult texts while also publishing her own writing and artwork. Orlee’s art also manifests into video psychomagick as she studied experimental video arts in university and creates video content about her magical experiments. Orlee’s practice is heavily inspired by her relationship with various demonic entities and the spirits of the dead, as well as deities from multiple traditional witchcraft backgrounds. Orlee does not follow any one set particular system of magick alone, she incorporates paradigms into herself from studying various occult systems and by working with both the forces of light and darkness in union. Orlee has undergone extensive spiritual training for over 15 years to refine her craft and is always learning more. She is trained in Solomanic magick, Tarot Divination, Demonlogy & Excoricm, Necromancy, Folk Witchcraft, and Ceremonial Evocation in Western Theurgy. The motivation behind what Orlee does comes from a deep wish to help inspire the spiritual realms in all those who come into contact with her creative works, to reveal the secrets of the void. Her name literally means “my light” in Hebrew and Orlee wishes to bring light to the mysteries that are hidden deeply within us all.
