Pastoral Magic

I have always felt more affinity with less traditional beliefs and karmic power as a life philosophy. As a result, my illustration has been inspired by magick—filled with dreams, illusions and fantasy and the natural world—the elements, seasons and the animal kingdom.

A pastoral scene, symbolising the complexity and beauty of life and where the rays of the sun and the moon are inextricably intertwined and without whom nothing would survive. Mother Nature as the central focus, surrounded by animal spirits. The cat represents the divine and the fox, creativity and magic. The presence of the tiny spider—wisdom and protection, whilst the raven is the purveyor of power and omens. Bottom left in the guise of a frog—the devil! Also at the bottom are the wee folk—visible only to those who believe.
