About E.Massey

E. Massey is an artist, author, teacher, and practicing witch. Born in NYC, Eddie's interest in art started at an early age, he attended the High School of Art and Design, where he studied photography and illustration. It was during this time he was also introduced to NYC's underground cultures and began painting full-time. Unlike his previous work of watercolour landscapes it had now taken on more of a darker surreal style. At age 16, Eddie was offered an opportunity to have his first solo show at a notable NYC gallery. Unfortunately on the eve of delivery a jealous family member had destroyed all but three pieces and he was unable to have the show. This act of cruelty had also destroyed his will and self-esteem to continue a career in visual art and turned to a new creative outlet . . . music. In 1994, he attended Queenborough Community College, with a study course in music technology and music business. During that same year, he founded Androide Entertainment, a promotional company for music events, local bands and later art. A few years later, Eddie relocated to NJ, returned to school, and became a teacher in early childhood education. It was during this time, that a close friend redirected him to pick up where he had left off years ago. In doing so, he regained his confidence and began painting on a regular basis. Tackling the sensitive topics of religion, love, sex, and sociopolitical affairs. To avoid any professional backlash as an educator he choose to paint under the pseudo name; Nectar. Since 2006, E. Massey has been teaching and living in Pennsylvania. Although his artwork was considered lowbrow and controversial it has been published and featured in various books, music videos, and exhibitions around the world. Which included work in a world wide exhibition of sketch books organized by the Brooklyn library of Art and has become cataloged in their permanent collection. His more recent work, under his given name; has been less controversial and more spiritual, but keeping his dark surreal style that he is known for. As an author in both education and alternative spirituality, E. Massey has written articles for national ECE magazines and has contributed to many educational curriculums. Over the last year he has been writing "The Little Witch's Curriculum", a book for parents and children that uses ECE theories and techniques to encourage personal spirituality through witchcraft, Wiccan, and Pagan practices. His first book, "A Witch's Journey" follows a yearly path working outline for more advanced witches or people who might want to expand their own practices and/or spirituality. E. Massey has been a practicing witch for over 20 years, He was originally trained and initiated into the Gardnerian tradition in 1987 at the age of thirteen. He later followed his own path of combining traditional witchcraft with his Native American (Piikani)heritages. Eddie has been the High Priest of a local community of witches and Pagans in Pennsylvania. He is also a spiritual teacher/advisor, tarot reader, and a Pagan community event organizer.
