CV :

" Aelin Laer represents Celtic,
Druid and Elvish inspired Art of painter, Mia Šerić.
"Born January 20, 1990 in Split, Croatia,
she graduated from the School of Fine Arts,
Department of Painting in 2009.
In 2011.she finished traditional silversmithing course
in Atelier Lumezi, taught by artist Lazer Lumezi .
Her great imagination, love for reading and
celtic mythology have always been the main sources
for creating her imaginative parallel worlds and
the magical atmosphere transferred on canvas
and silver jewelry. All her artwork is connected with
programmed crystals, semi-precious and precious stones,
which are embedded in every piece of jewelry and attached
inside frames of paintings.
Her inspiration comes from the mystery and
changes in nature, hidden forms and details of the mysterious,
visible and invisible realms ,
from her path of Druidry, Celtic myths, mystery,
folklore and magic.

Besides her art progress she also studies
practices and has finished master degree in Druidry,
Crystal therapy ,Reiki, Karuna and Excalibur Healing.
She is active member of three Druid Orders :
"Druid Order Of Twilight" , "Reformed Druids of Gaia"
and "Ár nDraíocht Féin " "

triskele is the symbol I often dreamed about and it often

and closing the gates, as a spiral sign, when we work
with Mannanan as gatekeeper in our Adf practice.
It represents sacred number three, reincarnation, sacred hallows ,
continuous movement of the universe within eternity and
traveling inside ourselves. I often use it in my meditations for
increasing energy and mental strength .

This week and this month reflect most healing color in the world :


Starting with celebration in colors of Ireland, beginning of Alder Celtic tree month,acknowledging Spring equinox and painting nature in all shades of color of vitality, March is a month to feel and appreciate all that grows and lives.
It is a beautiful month to bring us closer to the Greenworld,
and remind us to take care of our environment.(if you are not already in the "green haze" ;) ).
Take a moment to observe, reflect,
and do something "green" for our world.
