"Art (art, writing, music, sculpture or any other form) is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words or images, to achieve changes in consciousness .... An artist or a writer is the closest thing in the contemporary world that you are likely to see to a shaman" Alan Moore on magic
"Art is the Door Though Which the Mysteries of Consciousness can be Approached."...Chance Gardner
"The content of the tantras are a witch's brew of magical spells and rituals, yogic instructions and profound teachings, often jumbled fragments which make them unintelligible to the uninitiated. they are like the grimoires of an enlightened wizard whose practices a transcendental magic" Meeting the Buddhas by Vessantara
“Those who see this script will not experience the three lower realms and will be liberated from the fear of falling into the lower realms; will be purified of the five poisons and freed from the results of one’s karma; will be freed from the fear of remaining in samsara.” — Terton Migyur Dorje
* "Dharma is our own reality that we seek to understand fully, to open to fully. Dharma, therefore, also consists of those methods and the teaching of those methods that are the arts and sciences which enable us to open ourselves. The practices that we do, which will open us, which follow those teachings, which implement them in our lives, in our practice, and in our performance, which deploy those arts-they are also Dharma." Robert Thurman

Occult in essence and esoteric in life, Tilly is a mother of three, artist, Jungian, Science and non-duality quantum fysiks groupie. An aspiring Völva with a philosopher's mind and lover of nature and natural, deep history, mystery and magic.
Using ahimsa silk and 24ct gold, her artistic focus is typically iconographic with the aim of it as a Shamanic tool.
Half French half British, London born in 1973, Tilly's childhood was spent between France, the cultural bustle of Hampstead, London and the natural calm of the rural British Shires.
When Tibetan Geshes moved in to the London family home during the early 1980's, becoming the Manjushri meditation center for a while, Tilly was first introduced to Tibetan Buddhism as well as the array of wonderful minds that stepped through the door, planting (or rekindling) seeds that would germinate over the following years. By 1996 Tilly started life as a full time parent to her three children.
Tilly is essentially a self taught artist who can hop between style substrate and media but has been working as a professional silk painter in the France county side since 2009, the same year she also became a qualified practitioner in an art based depth psychology healing tool. This deepened her cognitive understanding of the power of imagery and colour on the emotional body, the psyche and manifestation whilst pursuing her fascination with alchemy, quantum mechanics and the nature of reality, myth, natural medicines, neuroplasticity and magical symbols.
