Alice M. Phillips
Welcome! I am an art historian with a passion for curating museum exhibitions and writing historical fiction. My research focuses on nineteenth-century French Symbolist art, particularly Gustave Moreau, and on the history of supernatural beliefs, spiritualist sťances, and early psychology. I am also inspired by Irish art and culture, Surrealism, Gothic architecture, and the Pre-Raphaelites. I've worked at art museums in the United States and Paris, and presented at a conference of esoteric scholars at Cambridge University. I am also a visual artist, Celtic fiddle musician and step-dancer, roller derby official and former skater, member of a Renaissance faire stage combat troupe, and facsimile artist of rare historical medical books for the University of Iowa Libraries.
Please visit "Fiction" above for a free preview of my historical fiction novel The Eighth Day Brotherhood (Black Rose Writing, 2016), and feel free to contact me for commissions, art, or questions.
