Pachamama

Pachamama - Patron saint of the Pampamesayoc. 

The woman is the Divine Feminine of the Q'ero people; Mother Earth, Tierre Madre, Dragon Woman. 
The Pampamesayoc, those who built the sacred sites of the earth, from the pyramids of the Divine Masculine; Giza, Machu Picchu, to the stone circles of the Divine Feminine; Stonehenge, Avesbury. 
They are the Gatekeepers of these sites, the altar keepers. 
We as shaman of the Inca tradition, carry our altars with us, our mesa's; sacred bundles of Kuya (sacred stones) wrapped in holy cloth, seem at the bottom of the painting. 

Love Letter to Our Lady

A void of grating scales,
seeps electrifying purple fumes.
Tiamut's crimson blood drips Iike jewels of Gaia.
The sound, all that is, the sound - rushing, echoing like stars both born and dead.
Ninhursag's loneliness drops like a black stone. 
Life burns in the belly of Kisha.
The Great She, adorned in severed heads and fragile hearts.
Coatlicue, adorned in evergreen and serpent skins,
dancing the dance of creation.
Tierrra Madre, show us your red sole that treds upon our hearts.
Giver of life Pachamama, I love you.
I love you, love me.
I forgive you, forgive me.
I'm sorry, we're all sorry.
Hold me in your void Mother Mary.
Let me be soothed by the rushing and the grating of scales.

'The West Road' - Magic, Healing & Balance...

This is the third painting in my series mapping the compass, helping to deepen my personal relationship with the six directions.

This was a particularly powerful journey for me, as I am very much a 'Water' person in nature, which like everything has its medicine as well as its potential vulnerabilities.

The West road for me is very much about balance, finding the sweet spot between too much and too little, which is were the magic and healing reside.

The West is the place of the setting sun, dusk, where it is neither day nor night.... a liminal time and space, a place of magic and stepping between worlds.

Blessings to you all from the West Road!

Have a great weekend!

‘The South Road’ – Vitality, Fertility & Abundance..

This is the second painting in my series mapping the compass, helping to deepen my personal relationship with the six directions.


This painting was from the most beautiful journey, one that left me feeling profoundly changed on all levels. My teachers and I would like to share this luminous map with you, with the hope of sharing some of the South road’s medicine with you.


Blessings to you on your path… wherever it may lead:-)

‘The East Road’ – Mapping the compass.

This painting is from a series of recent journeys I have been doing to help me to deepen my understanding and relationship with the crossroads.


It is really important that we orientate and align ourselves with our internal compass on a daily basis. It is by doing this that we find and reference from our center, our place of power, our medicine and our dreaming.

This gives us a reference point to navigate by and check in with throughout our day, rather than being swept this way and that by any old energetic tides or currents, or defaulting to the mass cultural dream!

Blessings on your journey, wherever it may take you!
