Story:

This is the first painting I did when I arrived in the magical green Isle of Ireland.

At first I called her the Moon Fairy. Yet after many had seen her, she was recognised again and again as the much feared Bansidhe. The Sidhe lady whose cry has told many generations of the Irish that there would be a death in the family, it would also guide people through the transformation.

Not to be feared, for she helps in a very positive way...to let go of one's negativities.

Through change comes growth. The Bansidhe understands impermanence. Listen...can you hear her?
