Laura Tempest Zakroff can be described by many different labels: artist, author, blogger, dancer, designer, muse, teacher, witch - to name a few. Coming from a long line of diverging cultures, she is most at ease in blending her skills and inspirations throughout all of her work. Laura is a professionally trained visual artist and designer, receiving her BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and having trained at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts.
A practicing Modern Traditional Witch for over 20 years, her early days were defined by being a community leader and public spokesperson for Paganism. Laura was the Associate Editor of Crescent Magazine, A Pagan Publication of Art, Philosophy, and Belief from 1998-2004, founder of the Cauldron of Annwyn Pagan Society in New England, and the youngest attendee of the Pagan Leaders Summit in Bloomington, IN in 2001. After nearly a decade-long hiatus from being publicly active, Laura began to get involved again in 2014 - and now can be found teaching, performing, and participating at numerous events and festivals all over.
