As art and taxidermy are my profession I sometimes don't have time to keep up with my online galleries; and sometimes for a LONG time simply because there is too much work to do, paperwork to fill out and emails coming through the main contact inbox. Hence notes sent on dA will often get lost and/or simply buried; I do apologize for this!

If you wish to inquire about commissions or simply want to contact me please do so through my main email address;

For Celtic art and craft; ingrid [at] imbascreations [dot] com

For taxidermy; ingrid [at] taxidermyni [dot] com

Any general inquiries can be directed towards the ImbasCreations address as well.

Thank you for your understanding!

Kindest regards,

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

All personal and non-profit work is generally allowed. The public is free to download and save my work onto their computer if they wish. They are also allowed to re-post the artwork as long as my copyright notice remains intact AND visible. The artwork may not be edited other than resizing alterations. You are allowed to use my artwork for personal icons and banners, but do put my name back on it plus a link to this website. DO NOT link images directly off my website, as this steals my bandwidth.

You are NOT allowed to re-sell my work, pretend it was you that made it or heavily reference off my artwork. If you wish to re-sell my work you can visit the ‘Licensing and Wholesale’ information page to see how to obtain permission to do so.

All violations of my copyright will be dealt with accordingly.


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!


I am indeed available for commissions, please see the commission tab on the main website for more information.

Licensing and Wholesale
The artwork of Ingrid Houwers is open to licensing and wholesale. Please contact me for licensing inquiries, as well as information about wholesale prices;

Current Residence: Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland
Favourite genre of music: I prefer songs over genre, as I have a very broad taste!
