Welsh artist Jen Delyth is one of the most highly respected contemporary Celtic artists in the world. Her debut book, Celtic Folk-Soul, illuminates the beauty, power and spirit of nature expressed through the ancient language of Celtic art and symbol: the voice of the Folk-Soul. This beautiful book is rich with Delyth's stunning artwork and is structured around a symbolic nine-chapter motif. From Roots/Elements to Stone/Mysteries to Beyond the Ninth Wave, Delyth pairs insightful explanations with her radiant artwork, Celtic myth and poetry revealing to us background, meaning and depth to the theme of each section. Celtic Folk-Soul takes us on a journey of discovery into the many aspects of Celtic myth and symbolism. This is an ancient thread which weaves back through the art, myth and poetry and connects us to a complex mysticism that expresses the interconnection and balance of all things. The book includes a foreword by Robin Williamson.

About the Author:

Artist Jen Delyth creates original Celtic paintings and illustrations which explore the language of myth and symbol inspired by Celtic folklore and the spirit within nature. Her work is inspired by the folk motifs and symbols of the ancient Celts, but woven through her experience and vision as a woman of the twenty-first century. Born and raised in south Wales, Jen Delyth was surrounded by the kind of landscapes that have inspired poets and artists throughout the ages. This early connection to the natural world has played an integral role in her development as an artist. Drawing from ancient metaphors and integrating the visual motifs and language of Celtic patterning into original new designs, Jen Delyth finds the symmetry of form and symbol that expresses living archetypes. Her work is stylistically contemporary, iconographic, reflecting spiritual and philosophical roots which embody universal themes that reflect her love of nature and Celtic symbolism.

Review:

Jen Delyth has created a stunning book that captures the essence of Celtic magic and Druid Mysteries. On every page her evocative images, modeled on the early Celts yet carrying her own unique imprint, draw you into the depth and richness of a Cauldron of Enchantment. Stories and poems, legend and lore, create a feast for the eye and food for the soul! --Mara Freeman, author of 'Kindling the Celtic Spirit: Ancient Traditions to Illumine your Life through the Season'

A rich, wide ranging book with something for every reader drawn to the Celtic world. Jen Delyth is to be praised for her clarity and vision. --John & Caitlin Matthews, authors of 'Walkers Between Worlds' and 'Taliesin, the Last Celtic Shaman'
