Vikki Bramshaw is an author and researcher committed to studying folklore, religious history and the esoteric since the late 90’s. Following the successful publication of her first book, ‘Craft of the Wise: A Practical Guide’ in 2009 Vikki has contributed to a number of other essays for anthologies, including ‘VS: Duality and Conflict in Magick, Mythology and Paganism’ before releasing the groundbreaking ‘Dionysos: Exciter to Frenzy’ in 2013, which explored the Greek God Dionysos and the extent of his influence on the ancient world.
Most recently Vikki’s latest book, ‘New Forest Folklore, Traditions & Charms’ is a unique study taking a deeper look at the folklore and traditions of the ancient landscape of her native New Forest. Following this publication Vikki was asked to assist the curation ‘The Spirit of the Forest’ exhibition at the New Forest Heritage Centre. Her research has also been integrated into the projects of various New Forest Artists in Residence.
Vikki lives in the rural New Forest with her young son, hens, horses and one spirit cat.
