Emma & Fiachna O’Brien will lead us on a storytelling journey, bringing alive the mythology of her paintings. From the banks of the River Ganga, to the banks of the river Nile. From the Kings of Ancient Egypt to their origins in the stars. Embark upon the heros journey, travel through the sacred geometry of the elements , meet the archetypes of the Tarot in the quest for the Grail.

Emma´s work is inspired by esoteric study, travel and cultural explorations into Kabbalah, Tarot, Buddhism, Yoga, & Druidry. She has exhibited & toured internationally for the past 9 years, spending some time in apprenticeship with Ernst Fuchs founder of Fantastic Realism in Many of Emmas paintings are inspired by delving deep within Shamanic journeys & spiritual work.
