Marjorie Cameron was an occult artist who came to prominence during the 1950's. Known as the Witch Woman, she was fiercely her own character and her art reflects her personal aesthetic. From the Huffington Post:

Cameron’s work oozes with feminine, mystical force. Her depictions of walking birds, dancing lionesses sisters, serpentine witches and gossamer spirits combine ancient occultism with the fresh pulse of 1950s Los Angeles’ underbelly.

The Huffington Post also has a guide inspired by Cameron on how to bring out your inner witchy woman. Scroll on to see some examples of her spooky and inspiring work.

And under your sorcery I fare forth
To fabulous lands and meadows green with Spring
And caught on the gossamer web of evening
I behold incredible things no poet ever told.
