Be softer with you. You are a breathing thing. A memory to someone.
A home to a life.
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 The Textured Tarot card decks.
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 in my Etsy store Lisa McLoughlin Art. 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 with new rigid box
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.

The Textured Tarot plus mini booklet with new rigid box
Welcome to The Textured Tarot. The creation of this deck sprung from a desire to make something for personal growth that is accessible to understand and fashioned in a way that felt more in keeping with my values around Nature, inclusiveness, compassion and kindness.
With a beautiful mix of visual ideas of what it means to be human– it is an eclectic fusion of traditional, contemporary, symbolic and quirky illustrations.The effect is created by digitally collaging fragments of digital images, layered textures, digital art, hand-drawn art with stitched textiles.
This deck taps deeply into my vulnerability which leaves me with the sense that many people will benefit from this source of inspiration. I like to think that it is an approachable gateway for people new to tarot (particularly those who fear it), or a collectors deck for the tarot card lovers. I can also see it complimenting many other tarot and oracle card deck readings.
Available in my Etsy shop here.
The Original Life Design cards
This eclectic deck of 50 cards is a personal development companion. You can use them as an ordinary oracle deck or follow the five suggestions mentioned in the accompanying booklet to spice it up. They tap into your intuitive wisdom and aim to provide support and guidance to make incremental improvements in your life. The Life Design Cards have a web-like focus: similar to a spider’s web, making connections and building strength and resilience.
This deck of cards looks at the bigger picture while homing in on the details, with realistic, actionable steps and attention to wellbeing and Nature. I wanted to create a problem-solving deck to help us navigate life’s adventures, such as buying a new home or improving our health. I have previously trained as a professional coach and taken courses in permaculture design. What I particularly love about coaching and permaculture is the searching questions on how everything interacts to spark fresh ideas with more meaningful change. I was also developing a keen interest in astrology at the time.
This is the deck that was part of my Kickstarter campaign in May 2022.
Available in my Etsy shop here.
The Life Design cards 2.0
This is the follow-on deck from the Original Life Design Cards. The Life design cards 2.0 are a completely re-designed companion deck for our times. They tap into your intuitive wisdom and aim to provide support to make many incremental improvements in your life.
This illustrated deck of 58 cards is inspired by Nature, environmental topics, permaculture, and the vulnerabilities of being human.
You may use them in any way that makes sense to you. They are lovely to work with independently or combined with other decks. Use them individually or within a group to help tackle any problem areas. They are intended as a problem-solving deck but could be adapted as an oracle deck.
You can access a free daily draw of this deck from my menu ‘Card Draw’.
Available in my Etsy shop here.
