When St Patrick drove the Snakes from Eire, a new world was born. The ancient Celtic traditions mingled with new Christian philosophy and Ireland, as we know it, came to be. During the Potato Famine, an exodus brought this fantastic culture to America. It's Irish Day today, and with this in mind, I'm celebrating a young artist, who has a good dose of Irish blood plus Native American, French and African - a true child of the New World! The daughter of my friend Patti McKee, Sage Moon grew up here, went to school in San Francisco and spent a couple of years in New York before moving to Los Angeles, where she is now based. She is a film maker and very talented stylist, but her real gift is her art. I've known Sage since she was a little girl -she's friends with both my daughters - and have watched her grow into a beautiful, sensitive and accomplished young woman. There's a pic of Sage on my posting about her mom's home. East Meets West. I'll be showing her work here over the next few weeks - weaving it in and out of other postings - and have posted her contact info below.Today I'm putting up one of Sage's works (mixed media collage) in celebration of the day- New York Building with Wings - because New York was the doorway to the New World for all those Irish men and women who came with Hope in their hearts and gifted America with their children!
