I have had a connection to the ancient Celtic world for as long as I can remember. I'm also an Irish fiddler, pennywhistler, flute and Irish Bodhran player. My twin sister, Dru Wood-Golden also plays the hammered dulcimer, mandolin and the Bodhran. My daughter Mackenzie danced at the Worlds competition of Irish Dance in
Belfast Ireland a few years ago.
It's a family thing!!!
Through all this my art took on this love of Celtic knotwork and the like, as seen here in these Art Mats. All are copies of my original knotwork in watercolors. I've added a bit of fun to the mats with names of Celtic myths and places.
Eriu~ An Irish/Celtic goddess, the personification of Ireland. She belongs to the Fomorians and is the mother of Bres, king of Ireland. The name Ireland comes from her name (Eyre, Eire, or Eiriu).
