Consumed by The Cailleach!

Working on the Wisdom of The Cailleach oracle cards has been all consuming. 

I’ve found myself challenged, surprised and thrown into unexpected places now & then 
- the Old Woman does not make life easy!  

This blog has been placed on hold until the cards are published in summer 2020 but I thought it was time to give you another glimpse of the completed images.

If you would like to follow my journey with the Old Woman & see new paintings as they emerge

 Many thanks for staying with me during this busy time!



ANCIENT ONES ~ inspired by white quartz stones found at megalithic sites across Ireland & carvings on the Loughcrew hills.

BALANCE - inspired by the carvings on the ‘Equinox’ stone within cairn T at Sliabh na Cailleachwhich are illuminated twice a year at the equinoxes when the hours of light & darkness are in equal balance.
