Here is my wise owl protection shield! The idea for this piece of artwork was to design a shield in the style of the protectoress Goddess Athena. It is there to act as a wise reminder on days of stuckedness, that it is good to put a bit of trust in the universe; that I am protected and looked after, and it is also designed to provide a shield of personal courage so that I can be the me I want to be!

I finished a piece of artwork today, which is based on the theme of healing. My three gorgeous cats are the focal point as they are so dear to me, they are I suppose a form of the healing goddess within. I chose an art deco sunset as I love the period of history for its sense of life and daring to explore. I attempted to make my seven chakras strong and vibrant within the sunset, with a word attached to each to symbolise the individual healing properties which I see within each chakra. I choose collage as the methods of gathering of colours and textures, of tearing and arranging paper, are all so therapeutic for me and give me the time to be very still and calm.
