Goddess Icon Spirit Banners are sacred images of the divine feminine from the many cultures of the world. Each image was created and revered at some time in human history. Life is about connections between humans, the world of nature and the world of the spirit. Icons connect to the deep soul expression of the divine mystery of life.
The Ancient Mothers called me to bring their images and stories to consciousness using my gift which is art. Over the years my creative path of study, teaching and doing art led to creating icons of the Goddess.
The first banners were created for an exhibition at the Celsus Library in Ephesus, Turkey in 1995. Since then, the banners have grown from eighteen to over 210. They fly at sacred sites to empower, teach and share their stories around the globe. They hang in museums, colleges, kindergartens, temples, golf courses, conference halls, stone circles, hotels, studios, palapas, and a woman’s prison.
