The Sirens

The Sirens are the gatekeepers, the guardians of indigenous Southern  Italian people, culture and traditions. They are boundary protectors, oathmakers,  mermaids with feathered wings, who ride the undulating waves and issue warnings to those prone to disregard the sacredness of shore line. The Sirens are bird women who sing trance inducing incantations, sweetly and incessantly calling out their prayerful chants from the rippling sea. The Sirens are deep divers who resurface carrying vital and significant messages, like nectar, from the depths. Their life purpose is to tend to the soul of the world.

 Originally created with acrylic & Terra di Colori paints. Your print will be signed and numbered by Gail, then carefully rolled and sent in a cardboard tube. Frame not included. Note cards are blank inside and come with a kraft envelope.


"I use vibrant color(often sourced from minerals and botanical sources gathered at sites I visit and the essence of which I want to depict), line, symbol, image, rhythm and word, to expand consciousness, share ideas, enhance connection, push boundaries, question limitations, accentuate the luminous, initiate healing and express my wild heart, soul and spirituality. My work is informed by the natural world around me - the plants, trees, mountains, waters, wild animals, bird song and all the textures, sounds and aromas of the living Earth expressing herself.  I draw inspiration for my work from the deep well of the Divine Feminine, as well as from Old World myths, sacred stories, poetry, art and culture."
