The Sarah Wheatley tarot has consumed and transformed my life for the past ten years. I am hoping to publish a deck very soon indeed so please sign up for my mailing list on the front page and like my Facebook page for updates. I have finished the main artwork and am now writing a guide book and designing the packaging.
Each original painting is 35 X 50 cm on rag paper in gouache, watercolour and ink. I love doing intricate details, because it’s like a mantra. Every card has to have its detail challenge, its heroic element. I like to think it infuses them with a living energy.
This tarot has been an epic personal odyssey, an obsession and a miraculous tool for healing myself. I hope it can do it’s small part to help heal humanity as well, and inspire their love for Gaia, the living planet, and for the animals and birds and sea creatures that populate these cards.
