Come and see a more in depth look into the ideas and drawings behind my art.
Aine Queen of The Faeries Irish Goddess of Summer and Love
This is a sketch for a painting idea I have to honour the sumner solstice on June 21st. Aine is the summer goddess honoured on this day. The horse she rides will become a red mare which is said to be one of her poor animals.
I really wanted to give her a wild, sensual look because she is also considered and irish goddess of love. Hence the sexy dress and jewellery covering her arms and legs. I even drew a heart shap into the cleavage of her dress.
This a drawing of my interpitation of a selkie, A mythical creature from irish folkore. Similar to a mermaid except instead of being half human half fish the selkie has the power to completly transform from seal to human by shedding their seal skin
Ostara Goddess of Spring
The drawing is in honor of the spring equinox which is on March 20th.Where Dark and light are in equal balance across the Earth, and in the Northern Hemisphere we herald the returning of the light and the coming of Springtime in our lands. The Goddess of Fire has awoken, bringing Her heat to warm the land, and all of nature bursts into life! We honour the ancient Goddess of springtime, known in these lands as Ostara, Eostre, Artha, Goddess of the Sacred Flame. The hares bouncing around her are the goddess's power animal.

Mother Earth Goddess
In this sketch we have mother earth embracing a child. The child represents all of humanity and the inner child wounds we all carry. By healing our bond with mother earth we can heal the wounds of our inner child.

Irish Goddess of Fire and Spring Brighid
Rough sketch of the irish goddess of spring and fire brighid. I will be turning it into an acrylic painting.The reason I have drawn her with her hair on fire is because it was inspired by the legend of her birth which states that when she was born a tower of flame reached from the top of her head to the heavens. That and she is considered a goddess of fire. Which kinda makes sense for who better to be a spring goddess than a fire goddess that can melt the ice and snow of winter
Artemis Virgin Goddess of the Hunt and Wild
I once attended the huntress goddess workshop based on the goddess artemis. I felt true kinship with the goddess mostly because she is virgin like me. So I just had to creating something in honor of her. This is a rough skeych which will eventaully become a larger painting. A few things to note abou this drawing are the brooch which holds the ancient symbol of the triple goddess.The two wolves are her hunting hounds felt the would be more wild and fierce than dogs. One will be black the other white to represent the symbol of yin and yang and the divine masculine and feminine.
