To me, Nature is like an old friend. We don’t see each other often enough, but when we do, it’s instantly fun and uncomplicated. Without Nature we are nothing

Welcome!

I am a Mixed Media Digital Collage Artist and Maker, who creates Nature-inspired art and crafts including card decks: Plant Ally, Tree, Wisdom and Life Design, as well as various pouches and wraps to accessorise the card decks.  I am currently creating a textile art tarot deck #thetexturedtarot.

I am a Maker who communicates meaningful content through illustration and card decks. My creativity is fuelled by the understanding that we are Nature, and that within our culture there is a real need to shift how we communicate with ourselves and others to kinder ways of expression.  I know that images of Nature can improve our emotional and physical wellbeing because its colours, shapes and materials are enjoyable to look at. Nature is dynamic and continuously changes which can support us in our own growth, and I know that if we trust in nature’s guidance it can help us to create what we desire. 

I now currently stock all my decks, pouches and wraps in my Etsy store Whimsy of Nature. Below is a simple summary of what you will find there.

Plant Ally cards 

Plants are out interconnected allies. The quality of our life is enhanced by plugging into Nature’s energy on a regular basis. The Plant Ally Cards (#plantallycards) are helping to cultivate self-compassion within us so we can connect with Nature and also improve well-being. When we become accepting, warmer and kinder towards ourselves and our experiences of life, we are naturally kinder to others. We can then extend this kindness outwards to all living things.

It is now known that you can experience Nature vicariously through various interactions such as Nature-themed pictures. All forms of contact with the natural world–direct and indirect– are important to your health and well-being. Therefore, I want to help you fall deeply in love with Nature. To be inspired to go outside and connect and feel that you are part of the interconnected web of life.

Tree Wisdom cards 

Finding ways to deepen our relationship with Nature can cultivate a richer moment-to-moment awareness of life through meaningful experience and a deeper understanding of our connection with all things. Viewing art inspired by Nature is a simple way to increase our awareness of its magic. It helps stimulate us to notice more of the life-enhancing qualities of being and feeling part of the natural world. The Tree Wisdom Cards (#treewisdomcards) help facilitate this experience.

Trees are our strongest allies. They stand as sentinels in a symbiotic relationship with humankind. They are wise, with a quiet centre of being and patiently respond to the seasons whilst the world reacts and changes around them. They have a lot to teach us about acceptance, patience, impermanence and interconnectedness.

Life Design cards plus mini booklet 

Connecting with the web of life.

Have you ever felt that you would like to have beautiful cards that can systematically help you process and work through ideas? I know I have. Not just relying on your intuitive wisdom, but also having an underlying practical structure to work through.

Drawing on the Seasons of Nature and Permaculture Design tools and principles, I am creating a deck of cards (#lifedesigncards) for personal development use. I love the idea of a deck of cards that can serve as an intuitive deck, and can be worked through in a particular order to cover multi-faceted aspects of problem solving. All you need are the cards, a journal and a little time set aside.

Oracle/Tarot pouches and wraps

I absolutely love oracle and tarot cards!

I have many decks to suit differing circumstances and moods. Can you relate? Some decks I care and hold more dearly; so I like to protect them a little more.

With this in mind, I create a range of oracle/tarot pouches (and one or two bookmarks for holding cards) to help you store your cards. They also make a perfect gift for someone you love. I am open to commission orders to mix and match various sizes and fabric choices that I have available.
