I was born along the Great Lakes in Erie, Pennsylvania, and now reside in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina -- the heart of Appalachia. I am an ordained minister of the Order of Melchizedek, a medium, a certified Reiki Master and Teacher of the Usui Sensei lineage, a spiritual life coach, and energy healing practitioner working in several modalities, for individuals, groups, and locations.

An inquisitive and precocious youngster, I was raised in the Catholic Church, always questioning everything in my efforts to understand the abilities that many of the elders in my family displayed and that I myself had received. With an ancestry strongly heralding from the Eastern European areas of Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, and well Celtic European lineage from England and Ireland, I was able to recognize that there was something special going on in great-gramma’s kitchen with all the herbs and roots, but yet too young to fully appreciate what I was witnessing. Sadly the members of the immigrant generations of my family passed before I was able to directly preserve their history.

Having always felt that something was missing in my religious upbringing that there was something more, at the age of 18 I began searching for a spiritual practice that matched what I felt in my heart. I was introduced to Wicca and Paganism and felt a spark of recognition and a sense of “coming home” in my spirit, but it wasn’t a complete match. There was still something missing. I learned of Spiritualism and a more robust sense of wholeness came over me and I’ve been a Spiritualist ever since.

I have worked with Spirit since early childhood, the kid that always seemed to “know” things before they’d happen. After discovering Spiritualism, I began growing, learning, honing, and adapting the sensory perception abilities of clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience. As far back as I can remember, I have been able to see and hear Spirit, and ultimately in 1999 began formal studies into the practice of mediumship, the healing arts and Spirituality. Over the years I’ve learned to implicitly trust the gifts of my intuition and my guides and utilize them to coach my clients through the twists and turns of life to find love, and to prosper, grow, learn, and heal.

Rootwork and the practice of hoodoo was the final piece of the puzzle, completing my spiritual quest; a piece that I formalized and integrated seamlessly – and powerfully – into my established spiritual practices upon graduating Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course in 2018 and becoming a pastor at Folk Faith Ministries. Hoodoo and rootwork have not only complemented my spiritual gifts but in many ways augmented them as well. It was a natural, harmonious blending.

Readings and spell casting booked with me are treated with the highest level of integrity and discretion, without judgement, although I reserve the right to refuse requests for unjustified curses. Workings do require a reading before beginning to ensure clear intentions and outline expectations for the best outcome possible. It’s my goal to assist anyone I can to be the best versions of themselves, empowered, living life to its fullest extent.

If I cannot provide certain rootwork services to you because I am over-booked or cannot take your case for another reason, I will select and recommend at least three other AIRR rootworkers to you, based on what I understand of your case. If you engage one of them, I will provide a complete copy of my notes from our reading to the worker of your choice, via email. This will save you considerable time in consultation.

Reverend Art is an Amazing reader! He’s highly knowledgeable and kind. I’m so happy I found him! You’re a breath of fresh air! Positive, uplifting and knowledgeable! -- S.B.

I don’t trust a lot of people, but I trust [Reverend] Art. [Meeting through a mutual employer and] being of similar minds we talk magick often. When I’m in need, he has come through. Art has worked or interceded on my behalf three times [in situations] concerning my children and my wellbeing. {Recently} my teenage [daughter] and grown [son] had an argument. My daughter disengaged from her brother. Feeling I’d sided [against] her disengaged [from] me. Her walking away from me triggered some dark issues I thought I’d dealt with. The anxiety and depression [from this situation] sapped every ounce of [my] will. I was consumed by fear she’d never talk to me again. I didn’t care about food. I stopped listening to music. My laugh left me. I can’t remember ever being that low. Needing a friendly voice and support I called Art. [He] listened and formulated a plan. Asking very measured questions, he established what I’d already done (a sugar jar, prayers, and chanting, etc.) and confirmed my instinct to work a doll baby to love and cajole in my daughter’s absence. He started a blockbuster followed by a communication vigil. The next day the air felt different when I woke up. I was confused by it but then it hit me: Art. I gradually came back to my own mind and no longer felt I was a danger to myself. The day after this energy shift happened, I turned on the radio in my car and wasn’t annoyed. My smile started to reemerge. I made the doll baby and started working it. Within a week my child was talking to me again. I found out Art had done [a distance energy healing] after we got off the phone. It allowed me to feel while releasing the oppression of [the situation]. I could breathe again. Art’s blockbuster and communication workings allowed us to come together to find a way forward. It’s no exaggeration saying the energy working he did legitimately saved my life. I know he will be there as my child and I continue to try to heal. I would recommend his work, his counsel, and his insight to anyone in need. Truly a talented and inventive, cunning person! -- C.O.
