Oil - Windows to the Soul

Oil on canvas - This is painting was inspired but the cliche "Eyes are the windows to the soul." I wanted to depict the image of a person who's body looked nature while the soul was withering and dying.

Oil - Spirit of the Forest

Oil on mason board - This was my first painting on mason board. I rather like the smooth firm surface you get with using it. This image was to depict how I see the spirit of the forest.

Digital - Demeter Druid

Digital - Again this is a variation on the Druid sigil. This is much more specific within the Hellenic culture as it is geared towards those who are dedicated to Demeter and her teachings. I am works to get this design on pendants as well for those that belong to DEO (Demeter and Eleusinian Order, ADF).

Digital - Hellenic Druid

Digital - This is a Druid sigil that I designed for those who follow the Hellenic hearth culture. The design is to help create a more cultural specific symbol that shows the Druid back ground as well as the individual hearth culture followed by the individual. I am working to put this design on pendants.

Pyrography - Hekate

Pyrography on wood - This image is of Hekate, the goddess of cross roads and magic. I honor Hekate on a regular basis so this image is great for an altar piece.

Pyrography - Demeter

Pyrography on wood - This is an image of Demeter which was inspired by a gourd vase a friend of mine did for me. As Devotee of Demeter this image is very meaningful to me.
