She trained at Glastonbury Goddess Temple and is a Priestess of Rhiannon and Cerridwen and is now offering Priestess of Kernow training, which I am happy to say I booked onto the first one and I am thoroughly enjoying this in-depth course that focuses on the magic of Cornwall and the many aspects of the Goddesses associated with the Wheel of the Year and the Land, Sea and Sky.

This painting was inspired by an eve under the Blood Moon at St Nectan's Glen. I invited a group of friends to join me at my watery temple in the woods to perform magic for my Cauldron of Changes spell and Naomi painted this in the weeks that followed. It is a depiction of me and my Cauldron and all the spirits that she felt were working with us on this magical eve. Naomi gifted me this painting and I truly treasure it, she is a remarkable artist.
