Orlee Stewart is an occult artist who grew up in Toronto, Canada and lives in New Orleans. She was raised in a religious Jewish household and rebelled to become a witch, priestess, exorcist, and ordained Gnostic Bishop. Orlee is a member of the prestigious surrealist Society for Art of Imagination and was the youngest member when the organization was present in Canada. 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 her gnosis like an event horizon of creative portals to the spirit realms. Orlee initially began sharing her occult knowledge as a teacher in secret societies, conducting classes on demonic evocation. She began sharing her learned knowledge on her YouTube channel and quickly became one of the faces of contemporary occult culture and demonology due to her artistic creativity and fervor for knowledge and the inspiration of humanity.
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, yet incorporates all paradigms into herself from studying various occult systems and by working with both the forces of light and darkness in union. 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.
