Blodeuwedd (pronounced blood-o-wee) by Mary Bird

Blodeuwedd (pronounced blood-o-wee)

Pastel on paper. 26x20cm. For sale. Professionally Framed. According to Welsh myth, the Flower or Spring Goddess, Blodeuwedd, was made of nine plants and given life through a magician’s spell for the sole purpose of being married to the king - a much older man. In time, she fell in love with another and together, they plotted to kill her husband. For this ‘crime’, the magician transformed the child-like Blodeuwedd into an owl (everlasting wisdom).

Artist Statement
for Mary Bird
Mary BirdHi!

My name is Mary Bird. I live on the beautiful Fraser Coast in Queensland, Australia.

I work in a variety of mediums from pastel, charcoal and graphite to watercolours and acrylics. I have not used oils for many years, but with the advent of more 'user-friendly' products, I may return to them in the near future.

I have done landscapes, seascapes, still life and portraits, but over the last twenty years or so, most of my artwork has been spiritually inspired, with some directly or indirectly channelled.

I also do Spirit Guide drawings, which can range between fully "fleshed out" works to very quick sketches which appear more like whispers on the wind.

I do hope you enjoy seeing my work. If you do, please don't forget to...
