  • Pam has been a source of awe and inspiration from her bloghttp://www.phantasmaphile.com/, to her recently released bookhttp://tincanforest.com/shop/what-is-a-witch/, but also through her work as the Getty Images’ Director of Visual Trends and The Occult Humanities Conference at NYU, as well as, her widely acclaimed curationhttp://www.languageofthebirds.org/. She continues to amaze me as a writer and teacher of magical practice and history, here are some examples of how she is changing how we perceive female roles:

    The name Pamela means (pan) "all" and μελι (meli) "honey." In this portrait, Pamela is portrayed wearing a gown of golden honeycomb as she embodies this reservoir.

    While bees have a reputation for bringing order, as their hives are models of organization. Bees are hard working and dedicated examples of what is possible through dedication. The bee is a symbol of wisdom, by collecting pollen from many flowers and transforming it into nourishing honey, it is the gold of the bees. Bees are often considered symbols of the goddess or divine feminine because they are ruled by queens. The bee are examples of cooperation and mutual collectivism.

    CARRIE ANN BAADE is known for her allegorical oil paintings. These painted parables combine remnants of Renaissance and Baroque imagery, creating surreal landscapes inhabited by exotic flora, fauna, and figures. As a contemporary painter, she returns to the relevant moments in art history in order to reclaim them, not merely as a quotation of a theme or an image, but also as the materiality of methods and techniques that ultimately create them.

    Carrie was awarded the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs Individual Artist Fellowship in 2010, the Delaware Division of the Arts Fellowship for Established Artist in 2005, and was nominated for the prestigious United States Artist Fellowship in 2006 and the Joan Mitchell Grant in 2012. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions: the Delaware Contemporary, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles, the Ningbo Art Museum in China, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida.

    Born in Louisiana, Carrie Ann Baade received her Masters in Painting from the University of Delaware and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago that included one year of study at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. The NY ARTS Magazine, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Austin Chronicle, the Albuquerque Journal, and Philadelphia Today have featured her work. She currently lives and works in Tallahassee where she is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Florida State University.
