American Tarot Association Cover

The Page of Wands adorns the cover of the American Tarot Association Quarterly Journal along with a lovely review of the the deck. Here is a link to the online version. http://www.ata-tarot.com/members-only/quarterly/current.pdf not sure if you can see it, but those who are members can check it out.

Hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday and that 2010 is a wonderful and nurturing year for everyone.

Just a little note, when I started the Pearls Deck, I was very sick and depressed. I hoped that, in painting the tarot, I might heal my spirit, and, if so, that my body might heal as well. I am happy to say, that I finally found out what is wrong and I have been receiving treatment for the past year. I am feeling better than I have in decades.
Cheers
Hexi.

I thought I would ad the The Pearls of Wisdom Tarot images have been printed in Mosaic magazine of Edmonton for the past year. http://ilovemosaicmagazine.com/mindbodyspirit/ It is a beautiful magazine with bright colours and some awesome artist's. They had a series on your Soul card, which featured my cards. If you are interested, you can subscribe to the magazine too. Lots of new age advice, health and healing.

I took on the Tarot as a path to healing my very broken spirit. I thought if I can heal my spirit, maybe my body will come along. I painted the most optimistic deck out there because I painted what I needed to see. When you are in the darkest of dark places, neon light is sometimes what is needed. Over the past year I have found that my body is following my spirit and I am getting well again. I hope that the Pearls Deck offers healing for others, feeling better is such a gift.

I am currently working on a series of acrylic paintings for a show in Jamaica. If there is interest I can post a few as I go along. My theme is "Caribbean dolls". My Grandmother traveled the all around the world and brought me back dolls from everywhere she went. It was like receiving a little "goddess" from every country. I loved all the different costumes and types of dolls. My favourite is one made of banana leaves and a cacao nut.

My first "Doll Series" was what let me to the tarot as many friends thought my paintings looked like tarot cards. Now I look back, I can see the connection and how it translated into the tarot. If you are interested I will post a few more. Sorry of the quality, but they have to be small files to upload. Enjoy! Hexi
