CV :

" Aelin Laer represents Celtic,
Druid and Elvish inspired Art of painter, Mia Šerić.

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 :

traveling inside ourselves. I often use it in my meditations for
increasing energy and mental strength .

"Choose the willow of the streams,
Choose the hazel of the rocks,
Choose the alder of the marshes,
Choose the birch of the waterfalls.
Choose the ash of the shade,
Choose the yew of resilience,
Choose the elm of the brae,
Choose the oak of the sun."

The Celtic landscape was far more heavily forested than most parts of our own, and Celtic culture was saturated with tree lore.
The first Celtic alphabet was Ogham, in which each letter was associated with a tree.The wood from each tree was accorded a practical,medicinal and symbolic value.Trees were teachers, healers, guides and enabled communication with subtle realms.They are still here today, and they are offering us these same gifts, we just have to listen.
Trees are living, changing entities  in the Green World , and so, too, is the magic associated with them and we can all communicate and connect with them, and learn so much in that process. Deep communication and dialogue with the trees and our true Self allows us to benefit from the wisdom and instruction they can give us.
We should all experience season`s changes in nature to understand ourselves and our place in the Greenworld.


Times have changed but trees are still here, although deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area.Forests are cut down for many reasons, but most of them are related to money, agriculture or to people’s need to provide for their families.Some is caused by a combination of human and natural factors like wildfires and subsequent overgrazing, which may prevent the growth of young trees.Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Seventy percent of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes.Deforestation also drives climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without protection from sun-blocking tree cover they quickly dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Without trees to fill these roles, many former forest lands can quickly become barren deserts.Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings that can be harmful to plants and animals.Trees also play a critical role in absorbing the greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. Fewer forests means larger amounts of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere—and increased speed and severity of global warming.The quickest solution to deforestation would be to simply stop cutting down trees.

Forests and trees are essential part of my life, inspiration, artwork, health and happiness.
they are offering me oxygen and freshnes of air, shade from sunlight which hurts me, charcoal,paper and pigments for my artwork, leaves, fruits and flowers for healing teas and natural herbal medicines when I need them, hazelnuts, berries, apples and almonds which I eat every day...and they offer me wisdom, contemplation, healing, shelter, comfort and pure beauty for all my senses.

Do you know what they offer to you ? have you ever thought about it ?
