Schull Bay wonders

As soon as the bus leaps out of Ballydehob and the known-by-heart shapes of Mount Gabriel emerge on my right, my soul swells with so much joy it can barely still fit inside my chest. No art can bring me more comfort than the sights of rough, bare rocks sticking out of the heather-purpled soil like tired but still welcoming bones of this ancient land. Then, the very air starts changing and every sharp turn echoes in my heart as a double beat. And finally, there it is - slowly opening its horizons like loving, long-missed arms... The ocean. The purest, ever-relevant form of beauty and freedom; the big sister of the universe, full of magic, shifting and hypnotizing like a sacred caleidoscope. Greedily swallowing pungent, salty air, I remember all those times the shore embraced me when I thought all hope is lost; and here I am again - four years, thousands of miles and countless lightless abysses later. I immerse palms in the soft, ebbing light and suddenly a bramble thorn, that's been

English is not my first language so minor mistakes are inevitable, I apologise for them.

Writing poetry, prosetry & short works of prose in my native language since roughly 2004, in English since 2018.

In 2020 started experimenting with calligraphy and ink wash technique which resulted in my Inkworks.


I'm synesthetic, empath, Asatru and medieval armoured fighter.

Some of your visual pieces remind me of The Crow, your art certainly has a lot of gothic characteristics. I hope to see you get recognized for your talents.

Awh, thank you so much for those kind words! I've only started from zero this February so still long way to go.


I very much enjoy gothic (although don't dress like that because I would look like an idiot with my baby face) - started with Type O Negative, then Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim aaand so it went. :) Also love Powerwolf's gothic image.


My art stems from few things - first of all, shading with ink is EVIL. ;P Second of all, I used to do a lot of 35mm photography and loved developing prints with Arab gum, so I'm kind of drawn to this kind of black and white style. Also, I design all my tattoos myself, so it influences my style too. And finally, I find plain black ink the easiest to work with, and I love my signature split ink method like in Burnt Flowers Fallen. ^_^

Wonderful gallery you have!

Awwwww, thank you so much! <3

I notice on your profile you say that English is not your first language. Is Gaeilge by any chance your first language?
