Neil Hague 

Neil is a UK Metaphysical artist, authorial illustrator and lecturer, originally trained in graphics and book publishing. Over the past eighteen years he has developed a ‘unique’ vision through his unique style of art and creativity. One that has been described as both spiritual and ‘neo-shamanic’ by people who have heard him lecture or who have seen his work. eil has had numerous exhibitions in the UK and his paintings have appeared on book covers all over the world. Inspired by native Earth peoples, ‘universal’ symbols, archetypes and a love of the science behind nature, he often links and expresses these sources within his work. In his self-published books Through Ancient Eyes and Journeys in the Dreamtime, he illustrates a personal and fascinating approach to art and image making. Expanding our view of the creative process, we are taken on a journey that weaves together a cornucopia of myths, archetypes and symbols, which through art, can reveal hidden dimensions of the soul. Neil’s work unravels the symbolism contained within ‘Gnosticism’ and offers a new insight into the ‘Orion mysteries’. In his first Illustrated Story Kokoro, he encapsulates the story of creation with the ‘themes and signs’ unfolding in our reality, as we go through a major shift in consciousness at this time. In his second narrative Moon Slayer, he takes the story further and deeper in terms of characters the creation of our reality. He has currently completed Kokoro part three titled Aeon Rising
