Commissioning a Talismanic Work :

As a designer, I have always been interested in creating beautiful things that have special, or even hidden, personal meaning for my clients. As an artist I continue to blend beauty and meaning together. 

My collectors are looking for special, protective amulet and empowering talismanic pieces to hang in their homes and offices.

Most are painted with special Daniel Smith watercolour paint uniquely made from genuine, rare and pure ground crystals. The ones I use are Tiger's Eye (browns), Kyanite (blues), Rhodonite (pinks), MaIachite (soft greens), Garnet (russet reds) , Amethyst (deep purples), Diopside (rich deep greens), Amazonite (bright cyans), Hematite (granulating blacks and greys), Bronzite (sparkly golds). They are amazing to work with but require a lot of patience and a gentle touch. To activate the colours on your behalf I collect very special water. It comes from an ancient 'Holy Well' near where I live in the West of Ireland.

These talismanic paintings are created to order and delivery will depend on my schedule but generally I paint at weekends and in my spare time.

The symbology I will use will be collaboratively chosen to suit you and your intention. We can chat it over first via WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype or FaceBook Messenger. The process of commissioning does not take much time on your part. In fact often too much information can interfere with the way this work appears in the world, I prefer to allow it to flow. It is a magical process for sure.

Prices for unframed pieces are as follows. Shipping options for your location are quoted separately. I do send my work all over the world using DHL or Express Registered post.

An A4 size (21x30cm or 8x12"approx) is €300

An A3 size (30x42cm or 12x16"approx) is €500

An A2 size (42x59cm or 16x23"approx )is €650

  'We Are The Granddaughters Of The Witches You Weren't Able To Burn'    2017  Here a figure representing the Divine Feminine archetype rises from flames like a phoenix. Inspired by taking part in Dublin's Women's March on January 21st 2017 this piece is about empowerment. I was thinking of  legends, of the rising again of something thought dead. It's about being inured in sacred fire. It's about boundaries being defined based in Love and kindness. It's intense and comes from one side of the colour wheel that is primary and elemental.  #fire   #sacred   #phoenix   #rebirth   #divinefeminine   #SignOfResistance   #womensmarchglobal   Watercolour powder pigments, water on cold press, acid free, 140lb / 300gsm watercolour paper.
