I’m Joanna


Sacred artist, soul guide, creator of tarot decks, earth mystic, moon lover, beach walker, caller of circles.

I encourage lovers of the holy earth to lead soul-rooted lives, to come into a relationship of reciprocity with the natural world and to find depth in the realm of archetype, myth, and mystery.

I believe your stories and your gifts are vital to mending the web of life on this planet.

In all that I do – including ­courses, retreats, consultations, artwork, and my tarot decks — the Gaian Tarot, Herbcrafter’s Tarot, and the Pentimento Tarot – I balance starry-eyed mysticism with everyday, shoe-leather practicality.  More  here.
