Kilpatrick’s Public House that is, the only Irish Pub here in Ithaca NY!

A while ago I was asked to do this, and I am very grateful that it’s finally worked out (and that they were on board with me drawing oodles of Irish faeries)! This drawing is very much in service to them – I hope that anyone looking at this or coloring it as they wait for their meal thinks about the fae, and the richness of Irish culture.

From the top left, counter-clockwise:



As the Powers that Be would have it, I find myself Called again – this time by a Goddess I already had a very casual acquaintance with already.


Her name is Aine, Celtic Goddess of sovereignty, the land and Love. And Faerie Queen.



Okay, considering that I advertise this as a Faerie Faith website, I should probably talk some about my own experiences with Faerie.

I haven’t had anything like they say in the stories – actually getting pulled between the worlds, or seeing little maidens with bright butterfly wings, etc. But I have felt their presence in my life, more and more as I have come to accept my belief in them. Here is some of how that has happened for me.


Pencil sketch, "Goddess Aine, Faerie Queen"Drew this last year intending to finish it in color, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. So here it is for now after all.

Aine is the Irish Celtic Goddess and Faerie Queen of Midsummer, the sun AND the moon, sovereignty, love and creativity. She also rules women’s rights and protection as she has been assaulted herself (and punished her attackers), and can take the form of a red mare.

I resonate very strongly with her story and my work with Faerie.
