The Circle had been named the Mayan Head-dress due to its resemblance to the traditional Mayan head wear & many Crop circle enthusiast believed it is symbolising the end of the 5126 year Mayan ‘Long Count’ calendar that happened on December 21st 2012. I felt in awe that I had been inside it just hours before especially as I looked closely at the picture at the tiny dots that were actually people inside the circle, this circle was huge,350ft across!

Since moving to Wales I've felt drawn to understand more about our connection to the land through the reading the old myths and stories. I discovered that the story of Cerridwen and Taliesin took place on the shores of Bala Lake

I thought it would be good to start my new blog by explaining the terms Faerie and Celtic a little bit more and why I use them. When I first started painting faerie art back in 2004 the term faerie wasn’t that widely known and I had a few people inform me that I’d spelt ‘Fairy’ wrong, thankfully the world of faerie has become a lot more popular over the years and most people recognise that it’s not actually a spelling mistake (though I am very bad at spelling!) The word ‘Faerie’ is the old spelling of fairy originating in France. I chose the old spelling of fairy on purpose as I knew the fairies I wanted to paint were not your typical fairies
