"Art is both the taking and giving of beauty; the turning out to the light the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is the recreation on another plane of the realities of the world; the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and men, and of all the inter-relations of these."

Interviews, radio, and gigs

Alicia Folberth has a television show, Keepers of the Flame,
that airs on Comcast, Channel 10 at 8 pm.Out of the Broom Closet - Newtown Patch Article
When my mural painting job ended, I was at a loss for what to do. My store had already closed a year and a half before that. Since then much has changed. I came to the conclusion that the best way to survive this recession and into the future was to diversify so that I would never rely on one income from any one job again. Although I work part time doing graphic design, it is still sporadic and its not easy being on 'call-in' status. So I have been keeping myself busy with 'gigs'  and working for several psychic networks. I have been podcasting since November and now am about to host my very own (real) radio show for the first time. I have also been putting in guest appearances on radio stations, and may very well have a spot on TV - we'll see. It's not the cable access television show I have been doing. One door seems to open to another. I'm looking forward to this year being a far better one than I have had in a long time.

What I am available for:
  • Graphic design - I freelance - I'm available for just about anything. Logos for a branded image are a specialty.
  • Fine Art - Paintings, illustration, portraits and murals. If you look at my work you will see I can do anything. People, kids, animals, nature, you name it! Commissions are a specialty, as are 'living paintings.'
  • Readings - The Tarot, Runes, and the Pendulum are my tools.I am available for phone and private readings, public events and private parties. I don't tire easily so I can read for hours if need be. My podcast 'SubRosa Magick' airs every Sunday at 7pm on blogtalkradio. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/subrosamagick
  • Writing - I am published, and am working on several books of my own now. I will likely be looking for a new magazine to write for soon.
  • As a priestess - I am available for legal handfastings and marriage ceremonies, rites of passage, home clearings, lectures and workshops.
  • Reiki - I am an Essential Reiki Master. I teach and do Reiki healing. As a priestess, I also have clearance to go to CT hospitals during non-visiting hours.
Other things I do:
  • TV: I also produce the cable access television show Keepers of the Flame which airs in the Valley on channel 10 at 8pm on Wednesdays.
  • Temple: My hiatus from the temple is now over - we are 16 years old now. I will be teaching classes privately (in person) and I will be accepting new students. Contact me if you are interested.
  • Store: Eventually I will have my own 'brick and mortar' store again. I haven't given up on that dream either. Until then, I have two Etsy shops:

I am finding that I am still learning how to work with the media - and teach them some new tricks in being respectful. I now know to request that the capitalize our religions names as proper nouns, and to NEVER refer to us as 'self-proclaimed.' Wicca has been federally recognized for many years, and they need to start respecting it.as well as other Pagan faiths just as they do Abrahamic Religions. Fairytale witches aren't a part of who we are. I need to specify that I am NOT INTERESTED in speaking about that which we are not, I would rather speak about who we are. Defeating this overwhelming ignorance in the public eye is hard.

It also seems that the media wants to know more about the history of CT's witches and the Witch Trials. I'm not from CT, but NY, but it looks like it is time for me to do some digging into its history since Connecticut media seems to expect that a modern Wiccan will be an expert on a history that actually has nothing to do with modern Wicca. It seems to be hard for them to accept that they once hung good Christians who were accused of Witchcraft in the early days of Colonial America.

Here is the recent list of interviews.
