Chris-(Wicked Castings)- Christopher Orapello was born and raised in southern New Jersey where he currently lives. He is a Pagan with a base in Wicca mixed with ceremonial practices and Thelemic philosophies and has been on his journey for over 16 years. He is also a proud NJ Freemason and has a full background in fine art where he received his MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Chris not only enjoys painting, but also enjoys sculpting and producing works in cast bronze and happily brings both of his interests to Eclectic Artisans. However, when he's not making art, he's working on his popular Pagan podcast "Down At The Crossroads" or his meditation podcast "Baphmetis Meditation." When he's not doing that, he's volunteering for South Jersey Pagan Pride Day or functioning as the Camden County Coordinator for the Garden State Pagan Alliance. All in all, he's thrilled to be a part of the Eclectic Artisans Team!
