I love the Tarot. I have been passionate about studying it for the past 15 years. Art is also dear to me, and collaging soothes my soul. Combining these two elements was so inspiring and I feel that others will enjoy the vivid colors, and unique depictions. 

 I source images from discarded magazines and books. They are piled high in my living room. My art practice involves setting the mood with candles, incense, crystals, and my favorite music. I make myself a pot of tea and begin. 

 I created the first Tarot images in the Spring of 2014. A year later, I decided to commit to completing all 78 cards. I finally finished this task in June of 2016. The project took patience and perseverance, as well as love and faith in myself.

After completion, all collages were scanned, framed and titled on the computer. The images were not photoshopped, and retain their original analog integrity. The cards will be of high quality card stock, with glossy finish, and antique gold edges. They will come with a full color lidded box.

 I wrote a guidebook to accompany the deck. It includes brief guidelines for cleansing the deck, how to read card reversals, centering, shielding, grounding, numerology, and divinatory meanings for the 78 cards. The booklet cover will be full color, with black and white inside pages. The guidebook is included with purchase of the deck, and will be tucked inside the lidded box, with the card deck. 

 The funds raised for this project will go directly to publishing the first printing of The Lioness Oracle Tarot. My hope and goal is to continue to be able to print this deck for a long time to come!!!!

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This Tarot deck came from my heart, and therefore comes with a risk. Releasing something so personal to the public takes immense courage.

Attending to all the details required to publish this deck has taken an incredible amount of discipline and energy. I have had to harness and focus my will in a manner new to me.

Selling, promoting, and shipping a product will be a new venture for me. My business currently consists of me only, and so I will be doing all of the work. This will certainly be a challenge, but I aim to meet it with integrity, tenacity and a positive attitude.
