What does ‘Imbas’ mean or stand for?
In Dúil Bélrai;
'Imbas’ noun(sean-ghaeilge/old irish)
Divinatory skill, encompassing knowledge which illuminates, fore-knowledge, inspiration, magic lore, prophetic power
The new name for our company took quite a bit of searching. I wanted something that reflected my main inspiration, as well as my own personal beliefs. Next to that we had to find a name that would not alienate people, but at the same time have enough power to create interest.
Eventually it came to us with the very meaning of the word itself; Imbas Creations. My belief. My inspiration.Usage of Artwork

I receive a lot of tattoo requests from people wanting to know if they can use a certain image for the purpose of a personal tattoo. By all means, go right ahead! I do request two things from anyone considering to use my artwork for the purpose of body-decoration. Because my artwork is my income I would like to ask anyone who wants to get a certain image tattooed on themselves to send me a wee donation. This can be whatever amount you feel fit, a small payment to support the artist. The second thing I ask is if people could send me a picture of the finished result, as I do love seeing the finished result!Commissioning
